Project summary:

The PROVE project is a Partnership aiming to contribute to the improvement of Quality Assurance of EU-Project Management in Vocational Education and Training (VET). According to the definition of the CEDEFOP, Quality Assurance in VET is delivered through "activities ensuring that education and training meet the quality requirements expected by stakeholders" (Glossary Quality in education and training, 2011).

The PROVE partners are VET organisations, consulting & training companies, university, associations of professionals, NGO, working at the national and/or the European level in the field of Project Management. Whether acting as training suppliers or as representatives of practitioners/learners/pupils of this domain, the PROVE partners noticed the absence of harmonized quality standards and certifications for EU-Project Managers. Assuming that this absence is detrimental to Project Managers themselves and their organisations, the PROVE project intends to fill this gap by organising a dialogue between the VET stakeholders of this discipline. In doing so, the PROVE project will generate a better knowledge of the needs of EU-Project Managers, a better matching of education & training supply and demand, and an increased efficiency in managing EU-projects. The innovative approach of PROVE is to seek convergence between the existing Project Management quality standards such as PRINCE2™, IPMA, ISO 10006, PCM and to result in a common quality method and set of tools for EU-Project Managers integrated in a Quality Manual, a Quality Charter and a new curriculum.
