DESIGNING COMPETENCE BASED TESTS
The IDOL project will research into the standards for validation of non-formal and informal learning. Development and improvement of the standards will take place during the project’s work on developing the qualifications for the new profession International Education Officer. The quality and credibility of the standards must be high and agreed upon in cooperation with several European countries. The work is of great importance since nowadays more and more informal and non-formal learning exists without proper validation.
Description COMPETENCE-BASED TESTS are included in the training programme. They give the participants a unique opportunity to show their competences in real communication situations such as taking part in a negotiation between representatives of widely different cultures, leading a team of programme planners, negotiating new training places for a large group of trainees, and so on.
Target group VET schools and institutes in partner countries and their managements; teachers/trainers taking care of international development; education authorities on local (municipality education officers), regional (regional councils), county (county administrations), and national (ministries) levels in all partner countries; national and international professional associations; education networks in the EU and beyond; policy makers nationally and internationally; relevant EU organisations; representatives of the media.
