Our Approach

In view of Europe 2020 continuous professional development calls for competence development, a needs oriented approach, an international profile, validation, strives for working with learning agreements and puts forward a number of priority themes. Most of these elements are reflected in the criteria of the KA1 applications of the sending organisations. These applicants are looking for the courses answering their needs and fitting their European development plan. The European policy is present on the demand side so it must also be present in the course offer.

For IMPACT the course quality criteria are clear. Courses should:

• be innovative and competence oriented
• care for quality and have a self-evaluation system on board
• link up with European education priorities
• include a European dimension and exploit the European added value
• engage in learning agreements and validation of the individual learning outcomes
• use ICT in an appropriate way
• take care of transfer and impact
