Welcome back in our ECVET’s journey.
After reviewing all the documents needed in order to start the procedure before the student’s departure, we will get straight into another phase: DURING MOBILITY.
After MoU’s preparation – definition of Learning Outcomes – the sending organization identifies the best beneficiary of the mobility and prepares the LA – definitions of units or tasks that the students should carry on during their placements. Ideally, on the paper everything is perfect and now the students must just take off, go in the host country, get them settled and start their placements agreed. It seems easy, doesn’t it?
There is a question, which comes up at this point: who is actually verifying that the students are working everyday in the placement assigned? How can we prove that the students are going to do the tasks agreed on the papers?
What the EU asks, applying ECVET procedure, is to provide a Proof of Evidence.
The Proof of Evidence is needed because allows every single part involved into getting to know what the students have done but in particularly how they have done it: their knowledge of a specific topic were enough for working in another country? How the mentor will evaluate the student’s performance? Has our student worked appropriately in order to get recognized their work placements?
In order to answer to all of these questions each sending organization should find a way to implement in the mobility a Proof of Evince which should be able to demonstrate the students’ tasks and performance on the placement.
