Product The Portfolio of Evidence Guide
Title The Portfolio of Evidence Guide
Product Type evaluation methods
The Portfolio of Evidence is a structured method with which the learner together with the employer/work place mentor can gather and provide evidence of competencies acquired by the learner in work place learning.
The evidence gathered in the learners portfolio can be used by VET providers for assessment purposes and for the learner it is also a way to give future employers solid evidence of their skills and abilities to apply their knowledge in real work situations.
The PoE Guide has been created in co-operation of another LLP TOI project, POETÉ.
The PoE Guide describes the three way agreement between the learner, employer and VET provider. Each party in the agreement has specific responsibilities in ensuring that the evidence gathered meet the requirements for assessment against the given learning outcomes of the competencies required for qualification in a specific VET program.
The Guide describes in detail each of the suggested tools and methods for evidence gathering and gives indications for which type of competencies each tool is best suited for.
The tools described in the Guide are referred to in the FINESSA Course Guide and modules.
Target group The target groups of the Portfolio of Evidence are the three parties in workplace learning (learner, employer/work place mentor and the VET provider) but the prime target group of the Guide are the VET providers and designers.
Result The methods are used by the FINESSA project partners in VET programs in the field of organic production, but can be used in any vocational field. The Guide is freely available on the internet to all interested parties.
Area of application The Guide is used in designing and operating VET programs.
