This project proposes a cooperation to exchange the good practices in terms of evaluation and development of the key competences. This partnership is constituted from 6 countries, and targets in each of those 6 regions 2 groups: G1/the actors in the employment and training sectors (trainers, social workers, teachers, entrepreneurs, HR managers ...etc) and G2/the vulnerable populations that are excluded from the employment and training markets (isolated women and single mothers, migrants, adults living in rural areas and/or territories in economic decline, disabled people, as well as people close to illiteracy.

After proceeding with a comparative diagnosis of the modes and practices that are used to evaluate the basic competences, with the actors of the employment and training sectors in every country, the partnership will experiment and produce tools and methods for an initial evaluation of the basic competences, that are related to the 8 key competences defined in the European reference framework. These experiments will allow the partners to produce together individualised plans for the development of competences, in favour of the final beneficiaries (G2) and the implementation of training modules to evaluate the key competences in direction of the professionals (G1) which would allow them to adapt their practices to the diversity of problems faced by the vulnerable groups.



This partnership aims at 3 objectives:

  1. Identify, analyse and exchange the good practices in terms of evaluation and development of key competences in favour of the groups who are in a situation of social and professional exclusion.
      • perceive and compare the public policies and programs that are related to the development of basic competences, in favor of the vulnerable populations without any or low qualifications
      • Identify and mobilise the various actors in charge of implementing the policies and programs in favour of the vulnerable groups
      • comprehend and compare the profiles and characteristics of the populations that are considered vulnerable in each country
  1. Coproduce and use tools and methods to conduct an initial evaluation and planning of the key skills.
      • Analyse the various modalities used to evaluate the key competences of vulnerable groups
      • plan and experiment tools and modalities to conduct initial evaluation of key competences
      • Refine the orientation and contents of tailor made training programs, targeting the vulnerable groups
  1. Improve and value the learning of key competences in a non formal & intercultural context. 
      • Define the different alternatives to conduct the initial evaluation of the key competences, according to the characteristics of the specific publics
      • Strengthen the capacities of actors in terms of tailor made planning of training initiatives
      • Promote the learning the key competences in a non formal & intercultural context.
