EURIAC - International training opportunities for European
youngsters in industrial vocational education
There is great interest from vocational education providers and the industry
to create a European education together that meets the skills needs of the
high-tech industry of today and tomorrow.
As a result, the EU project European Industrial Automation Class, EURIAC,
has been granted full financing from Lifelong Learning Program and will start
off in October 2011.
Kungsbacka municipality in Sweden is the lead partner of the project which includes
eight partners from five European countries (Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Spain, Germany).
The aim of the project is to create a European vocational education and training module
in industrial automation that will offer students the opportunity to carry out part
of the education abroad.
The industry is in great need of people with broad technical expertise,
Ingemar Andréason states from the Swedish association of reliability and maintenance
technology, UTEK, who is one of the industry representatives in the project.
European industry is facing several challenges such as technology shift, industrial
streamlining to save energy, generation gap and increased competition from the
developing countries. We can meet these challenges through enhanced training that
equips the students with multi-skills.
The European class will be designed as a stand-alone course module that can be integrated
into any European vocational education and training program in industrial automation.
It can also be offered as a separate course for adults in vocational education.
Already, the industry has shown interest in offering the course module as an internal
corporate training course.
The course module will be designed using the ECVET framework, which is the European credit
system for vocational education and training. By that, it becomes a practical example of
how to apply the framework to facilitate the transfer and recognition of the knowledge,
skills and competencies students acquire when studying abroad.
We are so pleased to have been provided this opportunity to create another European class
in vocational education and training, the project manager of EURIAC at Elof Lindälvs
Gymnasium in Kungsbacka, Sweden, states.
The school has been involved in a similar project resulting in a successful vocational
European class in truck maintenance. The project generated many great opportunities for
those involved. Among many things, Elof Lindälvs gymnasium and Kungsbacka municipality
have become the most experienced ECVET practitioners in Sweden.
The project is also in line with the flagship initiative Youth on the Move in the
new European economic strategy, Europe 2020, to facilitate young people’s entry to the
European labour market.
The project leader Pernilla Öhberg, Elof Lindälvs Gymnasium, Kungsbacka, Sweden.
Kick-off meeting: 12 to 14 October 2011
Radius College, Breda, The Netherlands
All professionals in operation and maintenance should have certain competencies in automation.
This is the opinion of a lot of production and / or maintenance managers, to-day.
The European Industrial Automation Class – an outstanding education program for youngsters - will
be implemented in the frame of 4 “2 week training modules” including both class training
and practical on-site training. The aim is to promote the competence in Automation on
the work floor, in close collaboration with industry.

"Maintenance Interreg": Public-private cooperation for innovating the Maintenance industry
On 14 April 2011, there was organized a meeting for starting
an international collaborative project to support
innovation and business development in the maintenance industry.
The objective is to strengthen international cooperation and to develop
collaboration between the maintenance industry and relevant regional
and national authorities.
About the project.
17 und 18 March 2011,
Stockholm – Sweden.
VocTrainMaint is a Leonardo project running from October 2009 to end of 2011 under the
Lifelong Learning Programme and financially supported by the European Commission.
It allowed industries’ needs to be clearly defined.
About 100 completed questionnaires were received from SMEs and some international companies.
More skilled workers
Many active employees work at lower skilled levels. However, the Process Industry needs
more and more employees able to function at higher level (technician level).
Companies in different sectors are struggling with shortages of skilled workers.
Focusing on learning outcomes means shifting to what a person should know
from the point of view of the labor market and what a person is able to do.
Stockholm Meeting: 17 and 18 March 2011
Strengthening the global value of Maintenance
Human resources, education, training, and qualification are important areas
for globalizing Maintenance and increasing the value of Maintenance.
In the frame of the Leonardo Project VocTrainMaint were developed the corresponding curriculums
and syllabi for both levels (Maintenance Technician and Maintenance Supervisor).
In the final stage of the project will be developed some marketing tools.
