The output O6 is the design of the VET courses for the application, in each country participating to the project, of the updated and new designed professional (formalised by revised MoU - output 4) and training standards (curricula - output 5) for the European common professional qualifications in nature-based tourism sector of the Nature- and Rural Tourism Guide and the Rural and Agro-Tourism Accommodation Manager. The design of the VET courses includes: specific VET learning and teaching methodologies and pedagogical approaches, new forms of practical training schemes and study of real life cases in nature-based tourism working activities, new VET teaching and training materials and methods, including work based learning, virtual mobility, open educational resources and virtual laboratories/workplaces adapted to labour market needs, specific for the sector of nature-based tourism.
The design of the VET courses for the qualification of the Nature- and Rural Tourism Guide and the Rural and Agro-Tourism Accommodation Manager, coherently with the curricula, also considers the specificities of the participating countries linked to National and Regional Qualification Frameworks and VET systems of them, such as ways of accessing certificate, validation of formal, non-formal and informal learning, procedures and qualification bodies, with a particular focus on already existing rules and procedures for assessment, transfer, validation and accumulation of learning outcomes achieved in formal, informal and non formal contexts, and also on existing flexible devices for validation, transfer and recognition of learning outcomes.
The design of the VET courses also includes the prevision of the utilisation of the common models for Learning Agreements ECVET, and for ECVET Credits Awarding with Europass Certificate Supplement, defined by the project before the providing of the courses (outputs 7 and 8), and also the prevision of the realisation of a part of the courses in the form of blended mobility of VET learners.
