Tacit forms of key competences for changing employment
the Tacit-Key project a more holistic approach to competence was needed
which would refer not only to occupational needs but to needs of the individuals
with respect to enabling them to manage their personal biography as a whole.
A new learning culture also had to be envisaged which would refer to competences
which are generative of future individual and group performance rather
than based on reductions of present individual work activities. Since all
possibilities could not be explored simultaneously, the 'starfish' model
was developed initially on the basis of existing knowledge in the partner
counties, and developed heuristically in exploring the tacit dimensions
of key competences in work re-entry. While there are official formulations
of key competences in most countries, these are in very different stages
of development and are controversial within their respective national contexts
(Heidegger et al., 2000, p. 24).
methodology of the project is fully described in the final report (Heidegger
et al., 2000).
