ERASMUS+ KA226 PROJECT N. 2020-1-IT01-KA226-VET-009075




The TOP – Transnational Orienta Express Platform project starts from the success of a digitized guidance tool designed and implemented in Italy by OLTRE srl.

The general objective of the already existing “Orienta Express” online tool is to guide different target groups towards effective school choices and/or job opportunities, and stems from the idea that this journey towards one’s own fulfilment starts with the knowledge of the particular characteristics of each individual, emerging from a self-assessment process. To date the tool is only available at national level, in Italian language, and foresees three different strands of activity, corresponding to the same number of target profiles and exigencies with regard to the future potential perspectives in terms of training and/or job opportunities:

a) Orienta Teenager supports the transition of children from middle school to high school;

b) Orienta Young supports the transition of boys/girls from high school to university, higher education/technical institutes, specialization courses, or the world of work;

c) Orienta Job Seeker to support of the delicate passage of each person who is faced with entering the job market after a training course or of those who want to change their professional career.

The TOP project seeks to develop and transfer the tool, focusing on the target group b), and adapting its methodology to different national education and training systems (BG, AT, ES, IE, LEB).


Il progetto TOP – Transnational Orienta Express Platform parte dal successo di uno strumento di orientamento digitalizzato progettato e realizzato in Italia da OLTRE srl.

L’obiettivo generale del già esistente strumento online “Orienta Express” è quello di guidare i diversi gruppi target verso scelte scolastiche e/o opportunità lavorative efficaci, e nasce dall’idea che questo viaggio verso la propria realizzazione inizi con la conoscenza delle caratteristiche peculiari di ogni individuo, emergenti da un processo di autovalutazione. Ad oggi lo strumento è disponibile solo a livello nazionale, in lingua italiana, e prevede tre diversi filoni di attività, corrispondenti ad altrettanti profili target ed esigenze rispetto alle potenziali prospettive future in termini di opportunità formative e/o lavorative:

a) Orienta Teenager sostiene la transizione dei ragazzi dalla scuola media alla scuola superiore;

b) Orienta Young supporta la transizione dei ragazzi/e dalla scuola superiore all’università, agli istituti superiori/tecnici, ai corsi di specializzazione o al mondo del lavoro;

c) Orienta Job Seeker per sostenere il delicato passaggio di ogni persona che si trova ad affrontare l’ingresso nel mondo del lavoro dopo un percorso formativo o di chi vuole cambiare la propria carriera professionale.

Il progetto TOP cerca di sviluppare e trasferire lo strumento, concentrandosi sul gruppo target b), e adattando la sua metodologia ai diversi sistemi nazionali di istruzione e formazione (BG, AT, ES, IE, LEB).


work package

The objectives of this work package are the coordination and management of project development, the definition of project strategies, the monitoring of the evolution of the project at each stage in order to ensure compliance with the work scheduling times.

The goal of this WP is twofold. On the one hand, it aims to identify the methods of transferring content in another language in relation to the IT tools proposed by the project and to provide comments and suggestions that will be used for the design of the tools in WP3. On the other hand, the WP aims to identify and analyze the differences between the education and training systems of the partner countries involved, the orientation policies and proposals following the implementation of European policies, with the aim of connecting these systems uniformly.
The results of this study will be used for testing the "capability matching" tool in WP4.

The goal of this WP is the development of IT tools that facilitate collaboration between partners in various ways. The development of the IT tool is foreseen within this WP:

1) A tool for an "alignment" of the competences offered by the Education and Training System of the participating countries with those required by companies. The national and international sites containing the job positions / internship offers of companies, available with a complete description of the skills and competences necessary for these positions, will be linked to the lists of students' competences and skills at the end of the training EN 116 / 160 courses uploaded by each partner. In addition, students and recent graduates will be able to provide a list of their additional skills and indicate the job positions they prefer. Partners will add this list to the system in order to inform students whenever there is a job offer that matches their skills, nationally and internationally.

2) The existing platform (the intellectual property belongs to the Partner Oltre srl) must be adapted to the needs of the project.

The aim of this WP is to test the IT tools developed in WP3, determine the short-term impact of the project results during its development in order to take the necessary corrective measures and obtain suggestions from the target groups.

Objectives of the WP are to assess the relevance, effectiveness and impact of the project, measure the progress along the project course, determine if the project meets the main needs of the target groups, measure the results of the project among the participants, determine how the impact of the project contributes to developing the community of beneficiaries, evaluating unexpected results, monitoring all processes, establishing quality control indicators and procedures.

The purpose of this WP is the dissemination of the objectives and results of the project to its target groups (students, business organizations and employers' organizations) the education and training sector as well as intermediate organizations (employment agencies).

The objectives of the WP are to ensure the sustainability of the project and to ensure an impact of methods, tools and good practices on policies and habits. The WP will start in the second year of the project, when the IT tools have been implemented.


Kick Off meeting for the assessment of the preparatory phase (project management structure, final report of the needs analysis, signature of the partnership status, approval of the monitoring and quality plan and of the dissemination plan, definitive assignment of tasks).

The meeting was organized by the lead partner Amadeus – Austria.  It constitutes a great opportunity for all partners to convene and discuss the various parts in relation to the research section, the quality assurance, dissemination, the valorization and the technology frameworks during the project’s life cycle.

The third meeting was organized by the partner ARM-BG - Bulgaria.
Quality assurance, dissemination, enhancement and technological structures during the life cycle of the project were discussed during the meeting. The methodological and technological implementation of the TOP platform has already begun.

The fourth meeting was organised by the project coordinator Oltre Srl.
During the meeting, quality assurance, dissemination, improvement and technological structures during the project life cycle were discussed.
The methodological implementation was completed, the testing of the TOP platform began.

The certification of skills based on the Orienta Express model has a dual purpose:

  • - protect Clients and Customers who use the professional activity of Practitioners;
  • - recognize, enhance and develop the professionalism of the certified Practitioners themselves.
