Individualisation in Adult Education and

  • BACKGROUND
  • The competence-based qualifications system came into force in 1994, and competence tests

  • The system has been developed in close cooperation between teachers and representatives of working life.

  • Vocational qualifications (basic level) may also be taken in the form of competence-based qualifications
  • Further vocational qualifications demonstrate the vocational skills required of skilled workers
  • Specialist vocational qualifications demonstrate a command of the most demanding tasks in the field.

HOW?
  • Adults may demonstrate their vocational skills in competence tests regardless of how and where they have acquired the skills.
  • Taking part in competence tests does not require formal training
  • Many participants participate in preparatory training to rectify gaps in vocational skills learnt at work and to enhance vocational skills.
  • The students participating in preparatory
  • training are provided with individual learning programs.
  • STRUCTURE
  • The qualifications structure is revised annually according to changes in working life and to feedback obtained from the world of business.
  • At present, there are 373 qualifications (191 of them further vocational qualifications and 130 specialist vocational qualifications) included in the structure.
