Certitude (2012-14): EU Academic Tutor Certification Scheme

ViaSyst has been involved as one of the 7 CERTITUDE project partners. This European project has developed an ISO 17024 compliant academic tutor certification scheme to answer a need existing in Europe. Academic tutor is an unregulated profession. It means that no official training or certification exists

By "academic tutor", the CERTITUDE project includes any person in the education or training field who delivers tutoring support. This tutoring function may consist in supporting initial or continuous training beneficiaries, particularly during professional apprenticeship in enterprises. This role can be undertaken by a teacher, a trainer, a pedagogical referring person, a training-period master.

The CERTITUDE project has been funded with support from the European Commission as a "Transfer of Innovation" project in the framework of the Leonardo da Vinci programme.
