Conference description

During the conference, based on the analysis of solutions in Austra, France, Latvia, Poland, Norway and Slovakia, 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.
