The modular units are extensively visually designed especially taking the topics health and safety at work and environmental protection in consideration.
The term “modular”
A BASICON module offers practical and theoretical basic skills through workplace practice in the construction industry.
Modules are presented with a clearly defined qualification goal. They are part of a whole (for instance of a job profile) and present the necessary vocational skills. The modules are divided into units, do not necessarily have to be used in a certain order and are flexible to be used according to individual requirements. Every completed module is certified (part certificates for each completed unit are also available).
The qualification procedure
The modular qualification involves a learning procedure orientated towards individual requirements and workplace tasks. The modular structure of the qualification procedure enables it to combine differing forms and methods of skill acquisition.
- Instruction in workplace tasks
- Exercises through working practice
- Technical theory accompanying working practice
- Support available from BASICON’s e-learning units
The practical qualification is analogous to the learning goals in the curriculum. As a rule, the qualification takes place within the workplace practice, although mixed forms such as tasks in the workplace and in training workshops are also possible.
The qualification procedure at the workplace can be seen as learning by doing: by repeatedly putting their acquired skills into practice, the trainees are able to achieve confidence performing their occupational tasks.
The learning material within BASICON’s modular qualification aim to dovetail practical and theoretical qualifications. At the same time, it offers preparation and evaluation of each unit for disadvanteged target groups. The modular material therefore supports the process of self-learning and at the same it is an instrument to control the qualification process.
