The development of the new professional profile Industrial Symbiosis Facilitator – aim of the INSIGHT project – is taking shape with the newly released definition of its Joint Training Curriculum. This five-module programme will provide students the essential knowledge, skills, and competences required to support industrial symbiosis.
The INSIGHT training course is expected to have a total duration of 150 hours, equivalent of 6 ECVET points. It covers five modules, composed of several training units (16 in total) each evaluated by a final evaluation process. Learning outcomes in terms of knowledge, skills, and competences are associated to each unit. ECVET points are allocated to these learning units based on time and relevance.
This report outlines the training curriculum designed to develop the Industrial Symbiosis Facilitator professional profile. Built taking into consideration the European Framework for Vocational Education and Training (VET), the training course includes Learning Outcomes, Modules and Training Units. Each is defined in this report, alongside with their duration and weight for the future acquisition of ECVET credit points.
The report also provides a summary of the validation process and an overview of the national education framework in Belgium, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, and Spain. It aims at facilitating the transnational recognition of the INSIGHT training course, its formal validation at European level, and its transfer to countries and organizations in view of an implementation in all of the EU countries.
