METALOG aims and objectives

The overall aim of the METALOG project was to improve the transparency and comparability of qualifications at European level and to create a better coordination of the "VET landscape" and the working world through better coordination of qualification contents and competence requirements of the industry as well as establishing a forum for the anticipation of future skills needs.   

 In order to reach this aim, the project had two major objectives:
  

  1. the development of a Qualifications Framework for the logistics sector (LQF) and
  2. the consolidation of a European Logistics Skills Network
      

By this, the project consortium intended to improve the transparency and comparability of qualifications at European level and to create better coordination of the "VET landscape" and the working world with the aim of better coordinating qualification contents and competence requirements of the industry as well as establishing a forum for the anticipation of future skills needs.
  

Furthermore the project aspires to create better network structures and coordination of stakeholders of the sector at European level. Supporting and promoting networks of actors having a stake in skills development and description at the European level in order to strengthen ties between the working world and education / training is vital and strengthens the sustainability of project outcomes and initiatives hithero undertaken by these actors. Such a network can ensure better anticipation of current and future skills needs.
  

The Logistics Qualifications Framework has been developed by using approaches for the establishment of sectoral qualifications framework developed in the projects Car Easy VET, Matching Frames and NQF-SQF. The basis for the development of the framework is the EQF (and NQFs), i.e. the sectoral frameworks will be related to EQF and NQFs.
  

In previous projects (CENTRAL, EUCOLOG, Prolog, Novalog, EURO TRANS LOG, ProfDRV) foundations were laid for improved, more transparent, more innovative qualifications and training in the sector.

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
