Pearle partner in a new European theatre technician project TALQ


We are happy to announce that on 7th September the partners of the TALQ project kicked off with their first partner meeting!

The project TALQ (Transparency in Art Levels and Qualificationsis) managed by Accademia Teatro alla Scala in Milan and involves 3 key partners: employers (Pearle*), unions (UNI-MEI) and professional associations (STEPP).

It is supported by Erasmus+ programme and it will last until December 2017.

The TALQ project involves a research activity to map national qualifications and certificates to ESCO-based international profiles. It will identify and test possible procedures, approaches and quality criteria which are shared and applicable across Europe. Three occupations in the field of lighting will serve as a test case to explore to which extent these three potential European core profiles can be based on ESCO occupational profiles and related to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

The profiles selected for this project belong to the international ISCO 08 / 3435 / Artistic and cultural associate professionals not elsewhere classified. In the European ESCO framework it concerns:

lighting technician
lighting operator
lighting designer

Concretely, the outcomes of the TALQ project include exhaustive mapping in at least 10 eligible countries, starting from a quick scan of the whole EU.
TALQ will search and analyze the contents and structures of existing training and formal education systems, matching them with information on the labor market and qualifications and mapping them in relation to the ESCO competences of the chosen profiles.
The process of defining the EQF level will be based on the work of a group of experts chosen by the three project partners and will use a quantitative as well as a qualitative approach to reach consensus. Moreover, TALQ will take advantage of the research to develop a common set of quality assurance principles and quality criteria for the assessment, validation and award of qualifications procedure. The aim is to implement a standard pattern that can be applied and customized to other similar profiles within and outside the sector of reference.
