The European Competence Matrix for Mentors is the result of the systematic elaboration of competences as products of learning processes, based on the chart of descriptors of the European Qualifications Framework on level 5.

It contains a detailed description of the knowledge, skills and competences required, taking into account the scope of activities and field of work of a mentor. The European Competence Matrix for Mentors is available as download on the project homepage: www.certimentu.eu

Area of application
The Competence Matrix is a solid basis for the development of a training programme for mentors as well as for establishing criteria for gaining a certification according to ISO 17024, which is recognised throughout Europe.
Furthermore the matrix is a basis for a learning needs analysis in order to be able to individualise the training programme and/or the admission for certification, taking into account previous knowledge acquired from non formal and informal learning.
