Marketing Text The Qualified to Teach project (QF2TEACH) provides different national qualification frameworks and one transnational qualification framework for Adult Educators in Europe trough conducting an expert-panel research design (Delphi study). The Delphi study consisted of two surveys. The aim of the first survey was to identify how a transnational catalogue of ‘Core Competences of Adult Learning Facilitators in Europe' should look alike and the aim of the second survey was to validate this catalogue. The questionnaire for the first wave of the Delphi study has been used successfully to identify a common ground concerning the Core Competences of ACE Learning Facilitators in the partner countries. The product provides reference material for further development and research activities f. ex. the specification of the identified core competences in for different fields of Adult and Continuing Education like in-house training or online education.
The developed product is the questionnaire of the first survey of the Delphi study. It proposes a first tentative catalogue of “Core Competences of Adult Learning Facilitators in Europe” which was set up on the basis of former European projects on competencies in ACE (e.g. Q-Act project - Qualifying the Actors in Adult and Continuing Education) and on the basis of an extensive literature review in the partner countries.. The questionnaire consists of nine competence domains:
- personal qualities
- interpersonal behavior and communication with learners
- cooperation with the external environment
- planning and management
- access and progression of learners
- subject-related, specialist domain
- monitoring and assessment of learning processes
- didactical-methodological domain
- personal development and reflection.
In using the questionnaire in the terms of the first survey the project consortium was able to identify which of the proposed competences were of particular significance to Adult Learning Facilitators. This led to a “Concept catalogue of core competences for Learning Facilitators in ACE” which was to be validated during the second wave of the Delphi survey.
