Currently throughout the
European Union, the qualifications of the wood and furniture sector are being
developed, as well as the systems of recognition, both via the formal
(realization of courses) and via non-formal (professional experience) recognition.
Depending on the countries, the definition of the qualifications level is
different, as well as the recognition systems.
This project aims to share
knowledge, experiences and good practices in those aspects related to the
qualifications in terms of obtained units of learning, for the industry of the
wood and furniture sector of the participating countries. These comparative
analyses will contribute to bring together everything that today is
coincidental in the participating countries as well as the distinctions that
exist between them, to thereby promote the mobility of workers in the European
Union and to the development and implementation of the European qualification
system in this sector.

In December 2012 the first partnership meeting for the project Wood
Workers Abroad took place in Porto, Portugal. It was put into evidence the different advances in each
of the countries, being for example Finland one of the countries in which they
are most advanced, in the case of Portugal and Spain the situation is similar,
and in the case of Italy, they are in a very early state in terms of the
definition of the qualifications.
The next project meeting will take place in Lissone, Italy in April 2013
