The output O4 is a formalised revision of the Memorandum of Understanding ECVET defined and signed within previous LdV ToI project ENS, revised accordingly both to updated common professional standards for the common professional qualifications already formalised by the MoU ECVET ENS (for the Nature- and Rural Tourism Guide, and the Rural and Agro-Tourism Accommodation Manager qualifications, updated within the new strategic partnership project accordingly to labour market needs evolution), and to new competence standards emerging from labour market in nature-based tourism.

Like the original MoU ECVET ENS, this revision is a formal agreement between project partners, regulatory institutions competent in VET and tourism, interested social parties and VET providers and relevant VET organisations in nature-based tourism sector, at national/regional/local level, establishing the European correspondence for assessment, transfer, and accumulation of learning outcomes achieved in formal, informal and non formal contexts (learning outcomes units, unit parts, related ECVET credit points).
The revised MoU ECVET ENS, which will remain a permanent agreement, open to the adhesion of any new interested organisation, contains: an introduction relating to background and general context of the MoU, existing provisions for the MoU at European level, definitions, general and specific objectives of the MoU; the form and content of the MoU in terms of participants, purpose, ratification and effectiveness (included the specific engagement of signatories VET provider organisations to keep in use the MoU for each implemented course and mobility concerning learning outcomes formalised by the MoU) ; the updated design, accordingly to labour market needs evolution, of the competence standards for the European common qualifications already formalised by the MoU ECVET ENS (for the Nature- and Rural Tourism Guide, and the Rural and Agro-Tourism Accommodation Manager professional standards), and the new designed professional standards required by the labour market, to ensure - for all the updated and new designed competence standards - the European correspondence for assessment, transfer, and accumulation processes of learning outcomes achieved in formal, informal and non formal contexts (learning outcomes units, unit parts and ECVET related credits); the mechanisms, included permanent joint governance body and periodical meetings to implement the MoU, and for dialogue and administrative co-operation, the regulations relating to nationality, the revision of agreement and notice of termination; the signatures of the parties of the MoU.

The Memorandum of Understanding ECVET ENS revised accordingly to updated common professional standards for the already formalised common professional qualifications and for new competence standards emerging from labour market in nature-based tourism, takes into account the MoU ECVET examples provided by the ECVET toolkit team (www.ecvet-toolkit.eu), which include the MoU ECVET ENS too.
The product is in English, while a synthetic version for dissemination will be translated in all the languages of the partnership (cfr., O11 : Info-pack 4, in English, Macedonian, Italian,Greek and German).
