EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for VET
Coordination: Training 2000 psc (Italy)

Duration: December 2021 – December 2023




Digital media have created unprecedented opportunities to connect, communicate and learn, in non formal and informal environments. Digital badges are validated indicators of an “accomplishment, skill, quality, or interest that can be earned in many learning environments.” In education, badges are becoming the preferred way to recognize micro credentials, as qualifications on units of study that focus on particular skills or competencies.

The project aims at boosting VET managers and trainers’ abilities and skills in recognizing competences and certifying the learning process of learners in the tourism sector through a continuous professional development training on the use of micro-credentials.

To this purpose, the following Project Results are developed:

  • PR1. BadgeTour micro-credentialing guidelines, to create guidelines and recommendations to set and define a standard process for describing competences in a process-oriented way, taking into consideration different recognition systems (EQF, ECVET, etc.) and considering data needed for micro credentialing in the VET tourism sector
  • PR2. BadgeTour toolkit, as an Open Educational Resources for managers and trainers in VET tourism sector on the use of digital badges to validate learning
  • PR3. BadgeTour training path,  to improve awareness and skills of teachers and trainers in VET in implementing micro-credentialing practices
