SEED project partners and experts from across Europe meet this week in Pamplona, Spain to validate the SEED vocational training curriculum created for ‘Smart Entrepreneurial Education and training in Digital farming’. The purpose of the meeting is to validate the curriculum content, training methodology and assessment methods. As a European project it is important to identify which units can be related to EQAVET (Quality Assurance in VET training).

The qualification will enable the students to be able to advise farmers about innovation and digitalisation. An in-depth analysis of more than 270 qualification profiles from the 4 partner countries (Belgium, Italy, Slovakia, Spain). Based on this research a qualification profile has been designed to focus on digitalisation and entrepreneurship.
The three core units envisaged at EQF (European Qualification Framework) level 5 are agribusiness, innovation and digital perspectives.
Four domain related competences are being evaluated, Strategic planning and sustainable management, Precision farming, Agrifood and added value services and Digital marketing and e-commerce.
