Competence evaluation and training
following research results are part of the methodological discussion on
skills and mobility:
are far more interested in how ‘soft’ skills and competences (such as ‘personality’,
‘experience’ and ‘cross-job skills’) are represented than in how formal
qualifications are accredited and ‘cross-walked’ across different European
occupational and skills classification systems;
(particularly those involved in the rapidly-evolving ‘knowledge industries’)
have a real need for skills that facilitate ‘just-in-time’ learning; the
development and utilisation of ‘organisational memory’, and the incorporation
of client feedback;
between skills and social exclusion is complex: training is but one element
(albeit an important aspect) of this relationship, and there is a need
for a more comprehensive (and more contextualised) set of tools to support
skills development for socially excluded groups (Cullen
2001, pp. 12f.).
results are further outlined in the final report (Cullen
2001, pp. 23-25).
