From 29 to 30 January 2015 the project partners from France, Belgium, Italy, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany met for their regular working session in Lyon/France.
The main focuses were on one hand the necessary considerations on updating and developing the European criteria of the competence balance (BdC) and on the other hand the first steps on the path to the development of a curriculum for the training of competence counsellors (CCs).
n his presentation Serge Rochet (CIBC Bourgogne Sud, France) described in detail the necessary progress by the realisation of BDC to safeguard their future especially in France.
Starting from 4 functions there has been set 4 target areas of the KOB. The latest quality criteria were allocated to these targets.
This already brought about, where adjustments are required and what is missing or what needs to be added. This debate must be therefore strictly continued in order that the next meeting in May will start with an updated catalogue of criteria.
About the second focus Jacques Hofmans (Laboratoire d‘Ergologie appliquée, Belgium) explained in a presentation his own strategy developing a curriculum for the training of competence counsellors (CCs). Tomas Sprlak and Regina Hentschel added their methods of training the multipliers, that had already been implemented in the European projects Qual´n´guide and Kompass.
All participants agreed, that a progressive methodology should be used by developing the curriculum. The starting point will be the work out of sensitive variables, for example the participants’ profiles, the modular structure, tools, criteria of success and certification. The experts suggested a proposal that will be discussed and adapted by all partners.
The next activities were determined so that the developed curriculum will be adopted with the consent of all partners by the next working session in Rome in May. In June the test period will start.
