Serving current, past and future generations of learners
At the Porto Social Summit held on 7 and 8 May 2021, the European head of states and governments set the ambitious target that at least 60% of adults should attend training courses every year by 2030. The demand for lifelong learning replies to the growing number of employees who need to update their skills and competences in rapidly changing work environments. EuroTeQ is ready to take on this challenge and offer interdisciplinary, cross-border comparable, high-quality, and learner-centred continuing education paths that cater to the dynamic needs of the European job market.
Next to our excellent education with flexible study paths and on the Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level, we offer short-term learning and qualification formats for vocational trainees pursuing a technical career and for professionals for continued learning. Discover our EuroTeQ continuing education stream, micro-credentials, the EuroTeQ Honours Degree and the EuroTeQ Professional.
Create a continuing education stream
Technologies and technological applications change fast over time. To keep workforce on top of the state-of-the-art knowledge, each EuroTeQ partner has developed continuing education formats with their local eco-systems. Together, there is a great variety of certified blended and full online programmes ready for lifelong learners. These can be combined with on-campus learning expeditions, such as the EuroTeQ Collider.
Together with our associated partners from industry we offer formats that meet the needs of employer and employee in the best way.
Lastly, we will define possible learning paths (a combination of formats) for lifelong learners from different professional backgrounds. This will also be done in co-creation with industry and professional bodies to make sure that the defined paths are target group focused, agile and flexible. This exercise will be done regularly to keep up with technological developments.
Micro-credentials refer to small teaching or educational units that, when completed, have a stand-alone value and clear learning outcome.
Procedures and standards for the assessment and recognition of learning objectives of Micro-credentials are currently being developed at EU level. EuroTeQ is actively involved in this process and aims to be an agenda-setter in the European Higher Education Area.
