This group, whose size is rather in- than decreasing, shall also benefit from a European area of skills and competences. Here, transparency shall be based on a newly generated tool. The partners of this project develop guidelines which allow drop-outs to document their qualifications and competences according to ECVET and EQF and –as far as already available – ESCO standards. Given the idea that this tool shall facilitate the integration of drop-outs into vocational education and training (VET), this project generates transitions between educational sectors and contributes to the permeability of educational systems in Europe.
