In January 2012, the Austrian National Agency for Lifelong Learning set up an ECVET contact point. At the same time, a team of seven national ECVET experts has been appointed - Karin Luomi-Messerer being one of them!
The ECVET experts provide advice and training for individuals engaged in the field of vocational education and training in Austria who are directly involved in the development of curricula, as well as institutions and businesses engaged in learners' mobility. The initiative particularly addresses those areas of formal education that are open to mobility, and which have a basic knowledge of ECVET or have already gained initial experience with ECVET.
The ECVET contact point serves as a central contact point for information on ECVET, the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training, and will also coordinate the activities of the ECVET experts. More information is available here [only in German].
