Specific skills profile
The Masters develops the following four skill groups:
The design of the Master follows two general principles.
First, the Consortium has developed a training structure that is shared by all the partners, with a total workload of 120 ECTS credits in two years (60 ECTS credits per year).
Secondly, the Programme permits flexibility enough in the design of specific courses to better profit the strengths and peculiarities of each partner. Thus, the Master defines a shared model of training while respecting the diversity within the different Universities of the Consortium.
According to the ENOP Model, the main areas considered in the Master are Work (W), Organizational (O), and Personnel (P) Psychology. In each of these areas the Master Programme aims to develop two types of knowledge and skills: "explanatory" and "intervention". "Explanatory" refers to theory devoted to the explanation of human behaviour and its context and to diagnostic skills in work, organization, and personnel fields.
Explanatory knowledge and skills prepare the student to describe, assess, diagnose, explain, and interpret the main phenomena and psychosocial processes in the areas of work, organizations, and personnel. "Intervention" refers to change and design theory and intervention skills in work, organizational, and personnel fields. Intervention theory and skills prepare the student to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate changes and interventions in order to improve behaviours, situations, and psychosocial processes in the fields of work, organizations, and personnel. This type of knowledge and skill also prepare to design new models, strategies, methods, and tools.
The Consortium has developed a system of equivalences and validation between the courses and training activities taught in every partner institution of the Consortium to fulfil each of the aforementioned blocks.
Master Programme structure in each of the members of the consortium.
The Master programme will be implemented in all Universities of the consortium. In order to achieve an integrated Master Programme, there is a common structure and a clear system of equivalence.
On the one hand, all blocks are taught in every University of the consortium. It is important to notice that the same curriculum will be taught in the Universities of Valencia, Barcelona and Coimbra. The University of Bologna and the University of Paris 5 will teach the same blocks but with slightly different courses. However, there is a clear and perfectly defined equivalence system.
The courses in the same file (blocks 1-9, 11) are equivalents. In this way, when a student passes a course in a University, this course is automatically recognized in the other Universities of the consortium.
On the other hand, there are common blocks in the curriculum: the joint intensive learning units (winter schools) (block 10), the research and master thesis (block 12), the professional stage (block 13), and the professional report (block 14). So, they will be the same in every member of the consortium.
