WP 3: Training
WP 3.1: A first step of workpackage 3 “training” was to identify the competences of the future experts. Learning outcomes were written to ensure the transparency of the training sessions in Russia. The training levels were matched with the EQF and quantified through ECTS. Assessment criteria were also defined to support maximum transparency. Read more here: Report_WP3.1
WP 3.2: The training programme was developed in an iterative manner. During the project, the training was improved in following points to ensure a sustainable and big VNIL expert pool:
- Three training levels
- Online self-study material
- Online exam and online training mode
- A template for a VNIL training schedule
Find here a brief report on how the training programme developed over the project time.
WP 3.3: Read more about the “Methodological Seminar – Validation Procedures”, (WP3.3) which took place in Rostov-on-Don, 29th of September 2015.
WP 3.4: Training of Experts
Training sessions in the Russian Federation:
Training sessions are held at four universities in different regions of the Russian Federation: TSPU(Tula), BC(Rostov-on-Don), MCU(Moscow) and UGUES(Ufa). Read more about the workload, the content, course materials and the assessment here. We also strive for improving the training sessions, why we make use of feedback questionnaires. Read more about it at our section about quality control.

Field visits at EU partners:
Next to the training sessions in the Russian Federation, also field visits at DUK (Krems), DUW (Berlin), UBO(Brest) and UoC(Chester) are held, to get an idea about current VNIL procedures at our partner universities.

WP 3.5: Accreditation
On November 23, 2016 all in all 60 people were certified on introductory level, 52 people on intermediate level and 1 person on advanced level. Through the creation of the VNIL expert pool on different levels, not only future training sessions and assessment is ensured, but also piloting at Russian Higher Education Institutions.
