Inspire, develop and influence a career of young trainees as European Metal AM Design Technicians.
DESTINE addresses the New Skills Agenda actions of promoting Vocational Education and Training (VET) excellence and making it a first choice among young people, while replying to Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) Industry’s needs. The project will achieve these purposes by:
- Developing a new European Metal AM Design Technician Qualification Standard (EQF level 4), rooted on a modular approach and innovative training tools (e.g. Problem-Based Learning assignments and study cases)
- Promote a sectoral skills competition in the field of AM – National and European Skills Leagues – structured in qualifying rounds, starting from a national phase up into a European phase
- Prepare the European Metal Additive Manufacturing Design Technicians League to be integrated in the WorldSkills™/ WorldSkills Europe™ Competitions
- Boost the implementation of this qualification at National and European levels through a guide that will foster the integration of this new Qualification in different VET Systems.
