Marketing Text Competences are human possibilities for action in certain specific situations. How can you make such intrapersonal constructs visible? Ultimately, they are only visible through competent action. By approximation, they can be deducted from descriptions of these actions and from other explanatory documents. A proposal for the systematic descriptive representation and compilation of individual competences provided the assessment tool for the for the professional qualification „Certified work place tutor“ in the project.
Description The assessment tool combined the description of competent action by the candidate as well as a systematic compilation of relevant documentary evidence in support of the competence descriptions. As a result, we got a dossier, which served as a basis for the assessment experts. In the description part of the dossier, the candidate specified for each field of action what actions he/she had already performed and on which of the specified resource they had used. The entire requirement profile of the desired professional qualification was thus an integral part of the assessment tool. Then they specified in which professional context (organization, function, etc.) they worked and described in their own words concrete action situations showing their expertise in the respective field of action. The descriptions were supported by self-chosen supporting documents, which were also part of the dossier.
Target group The assessment tool aimed primarily at candidates of the validation process. It was the central working instrument for the structured representation of non-formally and informally acquired skills. In addition, the advisors in the process referenced to the document. The individually completed dossier was, in the next step of the validation process, the essential basis for the expert assessment.
