INTRODUCTION

This report has been developed by Eurecons Förderagentur GmbH within the framework of Erasmus+ KA2 project “Improving the CNC and CAM-CAD Competencies in accordance with the needs of the industry at CNC vertical processing centres” / CNC CAD-CAM No. 2018-1-TR01-KA202-058585

“Need Analysis Report” aims to find out the needs of industries for CNC CAD-CAM training requirements and qualifications necessary for technical staff to be successfully employed.
For the aim to be achieved, three different methods have been applied in this study.
First, a secondary analysis of official and unofficial and official statistical data of the partner countries has been carried out.

Further ECVET and existing trainings are discussed. An assumption was raised that in project partner countries study (VET, college) programs with CNC, CAM
and CAD courses give students the training and technical knowledge to understand and use these specialized software IN PRACTICE. Furthermore, one major reason for the lack of transparency and recognition is the wide range of education systems, particularly vocational training systems, prevailing across Europe. On the one hand, some countries, such as Austria and Germany, have a large proportion of dual training (= apprenticeship),

A large part of which is conducted in companies. Countries such as France or Italy, on the other hand, have a more school-based vocational training system. In addition, the various education programmes have differing durations (some two, others three or four years), different access requirements (some require a minimum age, others the submission of specific certificates) and lead to different qualifications (HE access, direct access to the labour market,

Foundation of own company, etc.). There is also the matter that education contents can often be understood only with difficulty. Furthermore, every country has its own method of designing curricula and defining teaching contents.
