Welcome to TAMTAM

TAMTAM is not just an acronym, it is above all an onomatopoeic word used for auspicating a wide spreading of new qualifications and an effective usage of an interesting platform. The TAMTAM Exploiting the TIPTOE plAtforM by transferring ECVET and EQF semAntic tools in a Multi-sectoral perspective project (2011-1-IT1-LEO05-01969), promoted by Politecnico di Torino, is aimed at operating a sectoral and geographic transfer of the TIPTOE Testing and Implementing EQF and ECVET Principles in Trade Organizations and Education project: from commerce to ICT, fashion / textile, mechanics / mechatronics and energetic efficiency / green building; from the Netherlands to Italy, Austria, France, Germany, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and United Kingdom. The construction and the intelligent grow of a common European space for lifelong learning (Lisbon process, ET 2020) highlight specific needs like: a) ensuring mobility and innovation in professions by means of semantically transparent qualifications articulated into units to which ECVET credit points are allocated (European priority); b) favouring employability thanks to an increased match between results and innovation needs of the labour world (New skills for new jobs). They also highlight a transversal need associated with the use of a platform.
For this, TAMTAM adapts (at the methodological, contenutistic and technological levels), transfers (through specific actions aimed at strengthening the awareness/appropriation degree and at testing mobility and ECVET tools) and valorises (through exploitation and dissemination activities) the platform and the methodologies developed in TIPTOE by: representing EQF level 5 qualifications in the chosen sectors; applying ECVET tools; gathering innovation needs and verifying the flexibility of qualifications and their predisposition to updatability. Results are represented by: the platform, the qualifications of the new sectors, the guide and tools on ECVET, and dissemination/exploitation materials.The target group is represented by operators of VET and by the users of selected sectors. TAMTAM aims at a) providing them with concrete answers to the demand for improved mobility and employability and up-to-dateness of occupational and educational profiles; b) adapting the TIPTOE platform to let it: manage the dialogue among heterogeneous actors; handle and cross a wide variety of information concerning the application of tools for transparency (specifically,ECVET) by taking into account sectoral aspects (SQFs); enabling benchmarking operations.
The empowerment of tools and specifically of ECVET among the various geographic areas will provide an important support to the free movement of students and workers across Europe. The consortium is made up of 11 core partners and 9 strategic partners and represents a remarkable sample of organisations which are strongly motivated and used to cooperate in European contexts. Hence, they can provide the appropriate contribution and support in achieving project results. Several partners have a wide and proven experience in LdV projects; they have established close relations with local bodies and policy makers. The experience and human resources involved assure the quality in achieving project aims and performing activities planned.
