“Interactive Curriculum Development for Technical Vocational Education and Training”






Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education

The ICD-4TVET project’s main objective is to develop an open innovation concept and an approach to optimize and accelerate the process of creating curricula in the technical VET sector.

This practical contribution is expected to be achieved by suggesting an Interactive Methodology for VET Curricula development able to incorporate market trends/needs and respond to them in a fairly limited amount of time. This will be implemented through a digital platform with the appropriate tools to modify the curricula automatically.

The digital platform developed in the context of the project will enable the labor market actors to define their needs as they occur on the basis of ESCO, so the other stakeholders–ranging from national authorities to individual VET schools–can adapt swiftly to these needs with the creation of adequate, flexible curricula and training programs.

The ICD-4TVET project’s main objective is to develop an open innovation concept and an approach to optimize and accelerate the process of creating curricula in the technical VET sector, in order to:
(a) enable Europe’s VET institutions to keep up with the demands of the labour market and
(b) enable VET Learners/ Graduates and workers to pursue a successful career in terms of school and profession;
(c) foster quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalisation at the level of education and training institutions, in particular through enhanced transnational cooperation between education and training providers and other stakeholders.
Throughout the project’s outputs, it is expected that:The communication between different stakeholders in creating VET curricula will be simplified and accelerated;

  • An innovative methodology on developing VET curricula corresponding to the labour market’s needs and demands will be created;
  • A systematic approach to create and manage VET curricula will be developed-within a modular, segmented, digital system;
  • The individual validation process concerning competences and qualification through a standardized
  • but adaptable – assessment system will be supported (based on ESCO, the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations)
  • The ICD-4TVET Methodology and platform will be pilot tested in the fields of plastic industry, metal industry and ICT;
  • Future trends and promising recent technologies and innovations will be identified.
