Integrated delivery of CVT

The elements of the development work

Several elements have been worked with simultaneously:

A series of pilot projects
One 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.

Methodological and conceptual development
'The 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. 

Organisational development
'The 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.

An analysis of barriers
The 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.

In 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. 

All in all, it has been a very complex, modern, non-linear development process.
