Marketing Text We developed a workshop outline with working materials as a dissemination tool to make people, either representing the labour market or educators, who did not participate in this project, understand what the EQF is about. It is a one or two day program with introductions of the theme, it is interactive and full of possibilities for transferring knowledge to the participant's own work fields. The workshops have been bilingual and as such easily accessible for people who do not speak English. The workshop leader can lead the process in the English version while the participants can work the operational and reading levels in their own language. All discussions take place in the mother tongue, that is the content of the workshop while the workshop leader only has to follow the process by observing and asking for a summary of the discussions. (Of course the workshop leader does not have to be, but can be, an English speaking outsider).
Description Bi-lingual working methodology was very effective and made it possible to participate for a much larger group of people. For instance in Austria we did the workshop for all teachers, staff members and those who work indirect with the students(those hardly spoke any English) and the bi-lingual methodology made the workshop very successful. The process of the workshop was set up in English while the content was done in the mother language. Presentations, workshops discussions and other operational activities were in the mother tongue which made for ease of access.

All organisations are interested in EQF and competency-based Learning.
Result The workshops made the understanding of the EQF much better and our target groups were happy with these meetings. It made the whole project also more understandable, explaining others what your experiences were, made them understanding themselves the most! It was also the challenge to create an easy accessible methodology of working because EQF and competency-based learning is a very abstract subject.
