After a common buffet lunch with good French food and a lot of interesting and inspiring talks the general frame of PROVIDE was presented to the audience.

The training course that will be held in early 2015 for professionals in the field will make participants familiar with these tools and enable them to use them for themselves. Also they shall teach their colleagues on how to use them.
The French participants showed a particular interest in the validation system that is part of the competence based learning approach. It is based on the LEVEL5 approach and will be adapted to the project requirements, the competences for VET professionals that is.
