Tacit forms of key competences for changing employment
Concept Findings Practice Challenge
Synopsis All partners have concentrated on identifying models of good practice for CVT courses and employment guidance that take the tacit competences of the individuals into account rather than developing standard curricula for CVT training. 
    In the UK the importance of training that aims at confidence building has been recognised more and more, particularly with respect to training with young unemployed and to improving models for lifelong learning. 
    In Germany examples of good practice have been found in the context of CVT courses for women returners and formerly unemployed people who want to make themselves self-employed, and furthermore in new models of employment advice. 
    In Portugal innovative models of re-conversion training have been outlined and it has been stressed that only training practice that is more individualised and refers to the needs of the participants by engaged trainers can e useful for the labour market success of the individuals.
    In Greece good examples of vocational guidance for people who want to make themselves self-employed could be identified (Heidegger et al. 2000a, pp. 4, Heidegger et al. 2000, pp. 5f.).
Reference The examples of good practice are outlined as part of the research results presented in chapter 6 of the final report (Heidegger et al. 2000a, pp. 53-121).
