We will start in December 2023 with a project concerning the role of level 5 in educational systems, in countries that are involved in the European Higher Education Area. That is not only for the Short Cycle but also for other types of qualifications at level 5 and above (like building on the VET sector).
In the coming months we will publish reports here, and will make announcement about related activities.
As a start, here an overview of the presence in a formal way of SCHE in the 47 countries. If you have comments, please let us know.
overview sche 2023


As CHAIN5 we are a partner in an international project (Erasmus+) about the need for competences that have to part of study programs in VET and HE, looking at professions in the Building and Construction Sector at the levels 3, 4 and 5 (and perhaps also 6) of the EQF. And how to guarantee the quality of those programs? What is the role of the teachers? How to use dual systems in VET and HE? What is the impact of the companies?
The project has just started. In the coming months we will publish reports about the workpackages. And… we will organise also webinars for our members… Stay tuned!
