Conference description

The aim of the conference is to present and discuss solutions regarding the development, assessment and validation of transversal key competences within the formal initial and continuing vocational education and training (IVET and CVET) sectors in six European countries: Austria, France, Latvia, Poland, Norway and Slovakia. The outcomes of the conference will be used in preparation of the synthesis report to be produced within the project.

During the conference, different aspects of development and assessment of transversal key competences (TKC) will be discussed: how TKC are defined and specified (explicitly and implicitly) in the VET curricula; how are the learning outcomes defined with regards to TKC; how are the TKC assessed and validated; which solutions, methods and techniques are used in the national systems (examinations, portfolios, etc.); who is responsible for designing assessment methods and techniques.

The conference targets policy-makers at the regional, national and EU levels, national agencies and key stakeholders, e.g. VET schools and other formal VET providers, employer organizations, trade unions, and branch organizations, involved in developing, assessing TKC competences in the formal IVET and CVET. But also, to researchers, academicians, learners and other groups interested in VET-policies nationally and in Europe

The conference will be held in English and Polish. Simultaneous translation into the Polish and English language will be provided.

The conference is organised within the TRACK-VET project: “Developing, assessing and validating transversal key competences in the formal initial and continuing VET” financed by the Erasmus+ framework.
