IMPAECT Concluding Conference

The LLP TOI project IMPAECT


- Intercultural Education by Means of Partners working with ECVET principles -


throws a spotlight onto early childhood education and care (ECEC). It deals with job requirements concerning intercultural education in early years to raise standards of education in day-care facilities. In IMPAECT a research based comparative approach towards intercultural education has been taken in the first year of the project. Based on this, a unit of learning outcomes has been designed for the education of future day-care personnel reaching from practical nurses to preschool teachers (BA).


A second issue of IMPAECT is to implement ECVET principles in parts of the education of future kindergarten staff. Besides the unit of learning outcomes, an on-the-job training for teachers and tutors has been designed. Furthermore, a toolbox for successful internships and full validation and recognition of students learning outcomes in the sending institution has been developed. Both, on-the-job training and toolbox have been tested and evaluated in the second year of the project.


These results are delivered by a partner consortium of 15 partners from five European countries. Partners are vocational institutes, day-care-centres, employers, colleges, universities and ministry institutes. Munich University of Applied Sciences is in charge of the international co-ordination of the project. The consortium is delighted to present IMPAECT results and share its experiences and expertise with scholars, students, experts, policy-makers, institutions and stakeholders interested in these topics. For these reasons Munich University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the project consortium launches the
