The main objectives of the Sloop2desc project are:
- to improve European teachers’ knowledge of the new systems of qualification and competencies developed and/or adopted in Members States;
- to innovate the pedagogical competencies of teachers and trainers through the acquisition of new digital competencies, of new languages and communication tools
- to spread the practice of sharing and developing Open Educational Resources cooperatively
- to foster a debate between the education world and the labour market around the potential benefits of the European systems of certification.
The project is focused on the gap between education and the world of work, and how this gap can be reduced through the systems of certification of knowledge and competences based on the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF), the reference framework adopted by the Member States in order to establish general criteria to compare the different qualification systems existing in different countries.
