Competence Oriented Approach

As part of the pre-task, the participants will map their personal staring situation and working context.  Also they will identify the needs of the organisation and their personal needs.  We try to match those  needs with the offered content, methods and aimed competences. That way, we conceived the course, starting with defining the competences that need to be achieved.

During the course, next methods will be applied: lectures, work sessions, peer exchange, self-reflection, study visits, portfolio work,  role play, editing on own action plan, presentations…  Where appropriated a webinar,  videoconferencing or (a part of) a MOOC can be included.

At the end of the course, a network of participants can be established in order to keep on exchanging experiences, examples of good practice and support the continuous development of competences.

Blended Learning Modalities We provide an electronic learning platform where all course material is assembled. Course participants can have a skype contact with the trainer before and after the course.
