The action plan for the ECVET process to be activated in the professional field concerned by social entrepreneurship activities contains: a report on the research, analysis, and adaptation on experiences and good practices already implemented on transparency and recognition of competencies and qualifications, and on ECVET activation, both in concerned sector and in the other EU VET sectorial contexts; the planning for the activation of the ECVET system in the concerned professional field, defining strategies, activities and tools to be implemented by the partners to activate and develop the ECVET process.

The output is a document containing the design of the common competence standards (professional standards) for the new VET European common professional qualifications in social entrepreneurship sector. It is defined in a shared way at transnational level by the partners, using the knowledge/skills/competences approach, based on the learning outcomes established by the EQF.
The output is a Memorandum of Understanding on ECVET for the new European common professional qualifications in the social entrepreneurship sector. This is a formal agreement between project partners, VET providers, in particular those offering learning opportunities in the social entrepreneurship field, enterprises operating in social economy and also public institutions having regulatory competence on VET and social economy.

The report contains the analysis of the professional field concerned by social entrepreneurship activities, in each participating country and VET system (Greece, Italy, Belgium and Poland), identifying existing figures, profiles, diplomas and qualifications, classifying them within the European Qualification Framework - EQF levels via national and regional, in countries –like Italy– in which competence on VET is attributed to the Regions by constitutional law) qualification frameworks, and defining a shared professional perimeter to activate an ECVET process for the new European common qualifications in social entrepreneurship sector.

IO 5 includes the curricula as being defined in terms of Training Units, having a 1:1 ratio with the Learning Outcomes Units constituting the competence standards formalised within the MoU ECVET. The design of the curricula (training standards) includes a dynamic framework, guiding teaching and learning processes, and a steering mechanism for quality. For VET providers, employers, trainers and learners, the outcome-oriented curricula offers a valuable platform for bridging the worlds of education, training and work, and provides a common language between competencies acquired in learning and the needs of occupations through an interdisciplinary approach. The curricula also considers the specificities of each participating country, in terms of specific competencies and in terms of specificities of VET systems relating to ways of accessing certificate, validation of formal, non-formal and informal learning, procedures and qualification bodies.
IO7 delivers a template to be utilised, in each participating country, at the aim of the definition and signature of the individual agreements (Learning Agreements ECVET) among the professionals or the people on the labour market who were interested to participate to the VET courses, thus allowing the possibility to gain the new European common qualifications in social entrepreneurship sector established by MoU ECVET, the VET providers supplying the courses, and the organisations relevant for the periods of work-based learning included in the courses, describing, in compliance with the MoU ECVET and with the rules on VET applicable in each participating country, the training process in formal, non-formal and informal contexts, and the related ECVET credits to be obtained to gain the professional qualification.
