E-learning Programme

PART 1: Courses and Methodology

Overview of the different programmes implemented

Design Methodology

Pedagogical Guidelines

PART 2: European Tools to facilitate free movement of students and workers

EU Tools Introduction

ESCO for Technologies & Skills Analysis

Use of ESCO in the design of an ASSETS+ course

PART 3: From Design to Execution

In this section we present some use cases to help teachers/education providers that would be interested in developing ASSETS+ courses in their ecosystem, to understand our guidelines for implementation.

Each programme provider chose the most relevant programmes to highlight the best practices for implementation by EQF Level. The teachers that implemented the courses will explain :

  • The targets, domain addressed and topics of their courses
  • The pedagogical approach
  • The material used for learning
  • Drivers and barriers faced during implementation
  • Their recommendation for the replication

Drivers & Challenges in implementing training programmes related to Defence in a EU context

Use Cases EQF 4/5

The following videos present three programmes that were designed and implemented at EQF4/5 Level, where the students/workers must acquire a range of cognitive and practical skills required to generate solutions to specific problems in a field of work or study.

It is important to know that the courses developed at EQF 4/5 were dedicated to workers willing to upskill in innovative domains of the defence sector, that’s why we have combined theoretical and practical activities 100% online in our modules.


USE CASE: Records of Maintenance and Equipment Documentation


USE CASE: Analytical Tools


USE CASE: Circuit Boards Processors Chips Electronic Equipment

Use Cases EQF 6

The following video presents two programmes that were designed and implemented at EQF6 Level (last year of Licence Degree or first year of Master Degree). 
At EQF6 level  the students must show advanced knowledge in the field. This involves a critical understanding of the theories and the principles that have been presented. 
Moreover, it was important to raise the attention of students on Defence activities, that is not a priori an easy task. To do so we proposed modules that includes Defence Awareness, as it seems to us a good way for students to define their professional plans by discovering a domains, its activities and its stakeholders. 


USE CASE: Machine Learning for Defence


USE CASE: European Defence Challenge II Edition

Use Cases EQF 7

The presented video presents the program of the Computer Methods in Aerospace Engineering course, which was developed and implemented at the EQF7 level (master’s degree level of training).
At the EQF7 level, students should have highly specialized knowledge, some of which are at the forefront of knowledge in the subject area, providing a basis for developing original and creative thinking and independent research. Students should also be aware of critical issues in a given area of knowledge that is interdisciplinary in nature.
A very important aspect was the focus of the discussed content on defence issues. In the proposed module, much of the content discussed focuses on knowledge and skills important to the defence industry. Awareness of the importance of the issues presented in the module for the defence area may encourage students to combine their professional careers with the defence sector in the future.
