Companionship according to Ecett
Lifelong learning with Ecett; from two days . . . to five years
The Ecett learning method (MECETT) aims at the ongoing improvement of quality following the Deming wheel “Plan-C-Check-Act” model. Each trainee launches his project starting from a problem to be solved at his place of work. He/she will continue its training until the execution of an innovation inspired by the good practices observed elsewhere. The whole training process is centered on the objective “quality” for the final clients.
Each candidate trainee addresses his/her request to the helpdesk speaking his language. This helpdesk will identify hosting places having of the expertise and the qualifications sought by the trainee. The role of the helpdesks is to make a matching between the offer of expertise and the specific request of each trainee and to support the trainees during their knowledge exchange project between their own work place and other expert teams in Europe.
The Ecett learning method (MECETT) is very flexible and can extend from a voyage of two days to a training spread out over five years. For example:
A- An individual can leave alone, only once for visiting only one host, for an A internship (alone or accompanied by some colleagues), without continuing his training beyond that, or he/she can accumulate Ecett training courses and make other voyages of A, B or C type.
B- He/she can choose a “B” training course (five days) in order to learn a good practice and describe the associated competences. Those which presentment their good practice in an Ecett workshop receive a “B” certificate.
C- Gradually, some trainees will accumulate fifteen days of training by visiting three different centers and by reporting three good practices and an execution project which they will present at the “C” jury.
D- Lastly, those who are certified by the jury “C” can start the “D” level while introducing on their place of work an innovation inspired of the good practices observed abroad. This innovation will constitute a “masterpiece ” to be presented at the “D” jury. The “D” trainees receive a teaching support of two or three years for the execution of their “masterpiece”. Then, they are regarded as “Ecett Journeymen” with voting rights within the “college of the trades” to the general assembly of Ecett-Networks.
