Aims

On the basis of the 19 key competences defined by the KCAE-study a comprehensive professional development scheme will be transferred and piloted in VET institutions in the participating countries.

On the operative level, the project aims to

  • adapt the LEVEL5 system – a thoroughly developed and tested methodology for assessing and validating informal learning outcomes, to the specific needs of different forms of informal learning at the workplace of educational professionals;
  • further elaborate this methodology into a competence based learning approach for promoting the acquisition of key competences for educators;
  • test the PROVIDE approach in different learning contexts;
  • develop and pilot a training and support system for the CPD of educational professionals;
  • promote the PROVIDE approach among enterprises, AE and VET institutions and educational and political decision-makers;
  • create interfaces to certification systems (e.g. EUROPASS).
