European Business Baccalaureate Diploma for All (EBBD+)

 

European Business Baccalaureate Diploma (EBBD) was created in a Comenius Multilateral Project in 2010-2013. The diploma responds to the needs of graduates, since their competences vary depending on the country and the student. Because of this it is difficult for working life to employ and for the institutes of higher education to admit the students. The diploma covers the competences in the area of business and administration but also the skills and competences needed for working and studying abroad. Diploma was developed for young students in school education and several schools are implementing it in six countries. An association EBBD e.V. was established before the Comenius project for the cooperation of business educators and for the accreditation of EBBD programs.

After the previous project it has occurred that also in the adult education, where informal and non-formal learning is validated, there is a need and interest for adopting this kind of diploma. Additionally the feedback from European Commission in the previous project was that the diploma and the accreditation process are too complicated. This opinion is shared by the schools, which have been accredited.

 

Objectives

Project’s main objective is to develop the diploma to suit also non-formal and informal learning and simplify the accreditation process. By developing the diploma criteria to be based on learning outcomes and by writing them as competences, the structure of the diploma will be simplified. Additionally other requirements of the diploma will be modified to be more suitable for all target groups. The competence requirements of the institutes of higher education will be implemented in the diploma’s requirements. The diploma’s development work will also take into account the future needs of working life.

Important objective in the project is the dissemination of the understanding of the competence based learning and the dissemination of the EBBD diploma. Through dissemination and the large network of the partnership the diploma will be more recognized by European schools, the students, working life and higher education institutes.
