of the development work
elements have been worked with simultaneously:
series of pilot projects
of the first steps in the development process has been the launching of
pilot projects where different elements of 'the integrated delivery of
CVT' are developed and tested. Pilot projects were run by AMU-Centres.
and conceptual development
integrated delivery of CVT' has to be concretized in relation to the specific
training and the specific user groups. This implies that the enterprises
are categorized into different user groups that are determining which form
of contact the training institutions shall have to the enterprise before,
during and after the training course.
integrated delivery of CVT' has to be firmly anchored as an activity in
the training institutions. This presupposes a development of the interplay
between the different units within the organisation of the training institution:
Management, marketing, course administration and teachers. In order to
make 'the integrated delivery of CVT' an integral part of the training
institutions’ output, a coherent organisational development is necessary.
analysis of barriers
rather radical changes in the conceptualisation of CVT of course also faced
barriers at different levels. That is why a part of the development work
dealt with these barriers both at system level (regulations, economical
rules a.s.o.) and on the local level, i.e. the level of AMU-centres, where
the analysis begins with trying to find out what barriers are in the minds
of the actors - teachers, managers - and what barriers are of more objective
character. From a certain point in the development period of the analysis
of barriers has been used positively in the organisational developments
at the centres.
principle all elements have been be launched simultaneously. The
qualifying processes in the AMU-centres did not necessarily await the results
from the development of concepts and products, as this did not start from
scratch either. At present, a number of the conceptual elements had
been developed within the demonstration projects. These elements were then
utilised already in the initial phase of the qualifying processes and the
analysis of barriers. And vice versa.
in all, it has been a very complex, modern, non-linear development process.
