02 SES 12 A, Education and Research: National Educational Systems and Transnational Regulations Respective Recommendations - Added Value or Added paperwork?
The EASA-modules: The European Aviation Safety Agency formulated 13 mandatory basic modules (EASA 2003) for the maintaining and certifying staff working on civil airports. The situation 2010: To develop the apprentices to skilled workers as well as to licensed staff training providers have to be conform to both standards; the national apprenticeship regulations as well as the European modules. This led to a double-accreditation; each provider has to prove its ability to educate twice. The national Aviation Agencies publish yearly a so-called “delta-report”, where they decide, what must be learnt and/or assessed additionally to the curricula. The German delta-report was quite small for the aircraft mechanics (98 additional learning hours) but for the electricians all credits were withdrawn in 2007 due to the competence-oriented curricula – so a skilled electrician is capable, but not allowed to work. The solution: The German social partners (BDLI, (employer association) IG Metall (union)) initiated a reorganisation of the vocational training regulations in the sector. The electricians and mechanics are integrated in an occupational group and the new curricula are basing on the units developed in the trans-national Leonardo-project AEROVET. The presentation will focus on the challenges faced during negotiations with the safety agency.
