Other characteristics of Hanság project • Wide range of publicity • Selection from several students • Preliminary preparation of travellers • Duration: 1 month • Field: foreign language, professional language • Psychological and cultural preparation • Possibility of linking the credits achieved
Obstacles • Foreign language preparation is more difficult at vocational schools than in training adults • The effectiveness of vocational exchange practices and language development is very high, but embedding these practices into the local educational system is missing. • In the future, this gap can be filled with the acknowledgement, validation and adaptation of these mobilities, concerning ECVET.
Suggestions • The already existing vocational system should not be dropped out, it has to be formed into an „ECVET-friendly”, comprehensive and permeable one • The would-be users of ECVET should be given the opportunity to be called • The ECVET should not be the aim, but a possible tool of professional development.
Summary • There are some realized examples • There are possibilities in the cooperation • There are obstacles in our own area There is a chance for introducing ECVET
