The project ISO QUAM is aiming at providing low skilled or unskilled workers in the metal    sector with an approach for certification of their personal skills and competences (mainly acquired through on the job training and other non-formal or informal ways) on the basis of the worldwide recognized approach of the norm ISO 17024:2003. This Standard sets the requirements for organizations offering certification schemes for persons on competence level and allows the issuing of an ISO 17024:2003 based competence certificate which has worldwide recognition. ISO 17024:2003 certification schemes for persons are successfully working in other sectors already and should be transferred to the metal sector with the help of the current project. On the basis of the envisaged general aim we shall follow the following sub aims:

  • Adaptation of a competence matrix for low skilled and unskilled metal workers
  • Adaptation of the norm requirements of ISO 17024:2003 to the needs of the metal sector
  • Adaptation of the certification documents on the basis of ISO 17024:2003 (competence catalogue, examination approach, materials for examination etc. )
  • Piloting of the certification approach in all participating countries
  • Modification of documents and outputs on the basis of the pilot phase results
  • Mainstreaming and valorization of results, establishment of ISO 17024:2003 certification centers in the partner countries and beyond
  • Permanent reflection and integration of the project approaches in the discussions and developments around EQF and ECVET on national level of the partner countries. Studentenwerk haben mir gesagt, dass sie kein zimmer für mich finden https://ghostwritinghilfe.com/ können.

With these aims we intent to provide an approach urgently needed for the target group of low skilled workers in the metal sector to allow for an internationally recognized competence accreditation scheme, which is especially needed in front of the labour market disadvantages faced in the course of the economic crisis. It will provide a system for transparency and recognition of competences and qualifications (Leonardo priority), which is also needed to support the further development of the VET systems in Europe.
