Learning assessment

The PROM-PAR online modules are designed to be conducted at a self-paced mode. The modules’ structure includes both online and face to face interactions in a way to facilitate mutual learning, the exchange of experiences and practices, co-operation, resource sharing and referral to complementary support offers and the development of new synergies.

The overall aim was to increase both the tacit and explicit knowledge of the migrants, having in mind, that there will be candidates to acquire an additional lifelong certification.

For those learners, there is an option to sit in online exams per module. Upon the successful completion of the exams, a certification is automatically created for each candidate that acknowledges their effort and acquired knowledge in the specific module.
Recognition or certification of learning

PROM PAR has applied ECTS accreditation process to the Civic Education modules designed for asylum-seekers and beneficiaries of international protection, in order to equip them with a valid certification on the knowledge they will gain during the modules. They will have the opportunity to register in the online courses as autonomous learners and complete the (optional) exams to acquire and certify their gained knowledge. Notably, the recognition of the delivered certificate will be valid for all EU countries.

How the ECTS grading has been applied in the PROM PAR modules

A specific number of ECTS credits were allocated to each module, according to the required estimated workload to achieve the defined learning outcomes. In particular, the following modules, upon completion, correspond to one ECTS credit and are uploaded to the PROM PAR E-Learning Platform:
