The ECTS has become one of the main pillars of the Bologna process towards a common EHEA. More recently, ECVET is being designed as a response to the specificities of Vocational Education and Training (VET). A central issue of the Be-TWIN Project is to define the connection between the two credit systems.
Be-TWIN will offer a better relationship between HE and VET and between ECTS and ECVET for the European Education Area. Translation tools between both systems would help reaching common goals of transparency, mobility and recognition.
The submission of the Be-TWIN project was an initiative of Chambre de Commerce de Paris in the framework of LLL Programme 2007-2013 Leonardo da Vinci sub-programme. UNICA coordinates the work Package 2 (methodology) and participates in Work Package 6 (dissemination).
The methodological guide "ECVET-ECTS: Building Bridges and Overcoming Differences
" is ready and available
