, is a project funded by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning programme, Leonardo da Vinci sub-programme.SLOOP2DESC aims at supporting high-school teachers and trainers in Vocational Education andTraining (VET) to increase their knowledge and understanding of new educational systems that are based on learning outcomes and competences.Specifically, the project refers to the European Qualification Framework (EQF), the referenceframework adopted by the EU Parliament and Council in April 2008 to establish general criteria for comparing qualification and competencies systems developed and/or adopted in EU countries.Teachers and trainers in Italy, Romania and Slovenia have developed specific pedagogicalcompetencies to be applied in educational activities that take new evaluation systems intoconsideration. This result has been achieved through effective e-learning strategies already tested ina previous European funded project called Sloop: Sharing Learning Objects in an Open Perspective,aimed at promoting the practice of sharing and developing Open Educational Resources bycommunity of teachers.
