Towards an European training market and professional qualification in Geological Disposal

Towards an European training market and professional qualification in Geological Disposal

Objective

The aim of this proposal is to enable present and future professionals on radioactive waste management in Europe, whatever their initial disciplinary background, to follow a training programme on geological disposal which would be widely recognized across Europe. This ambitious aim will only be achieved over a close collaboration between all stakeholders and through an effective and flexible use of academic and non-academic resources and competences. In addressing the needs of the end-users that will be identified through updating the CETRAD outcomes, access to a combination of education (formal), continuous learning and professional development (non-formal), and in-job learning (informal) will be offered and developed within the project. Under the FP6, PETRUS group has developed within the ENEN II project, a structure for addressing education. The new proposal seeks to extend the outcomes of the former study to the training activities that together with other measures like the establishment of an adequate quality assurance framework, will address the challenge of the non-formal sector. Besides, the project targets the development of a qualification framework (“training passport”) that is in the interest of different end-users and trainees. The qualification system should be transparent, based on the fair assessment of skills learned. The feasibility study on European recognition of non-formal learning through the comparison of different national recognition systems will allow proposing an adequate scheme applicable to competences in geological disposal. Finally, the project aims at networking all the training actors in order to form and foster the “geological disposal training market”. This will be achieved by developing Knowledge Management Strategy and implementing communication tools notably the “face to face remote teaching” infrastructure, which has been developed during the ENENII project.
