The INGOT transfer of innovation project provides a European Standards for accredited qualifications supporting learning about Open Systems and transition to web based technologies. There is currently no similar nationally accredited qualification in Europe in the pre-tertiary sector. Based on currently succesful innovative practice in the UK, the INGOT programme reduces qualfication costs and lowers barriers to entry to formal qualifications in previously excluded social goups. The impact of this project will be to directly support EU citizens in socially disadvantages groups and younger ages,to gain vocationally related qualifications facilitating their personal development. This is supported by improvements in quality through innovation in VET delivery systems and practice.
