TRAnsparent Competence in Europe

Making competences transparency a reality
TRACE will increase the transparency of competencies and skills among EU countries, regions and sectors, facilitating the uptake and adoption of eLearning through a better understanding of the competencies-related challenges that still exist in the eLearning sector.

In today’s knowledge society, competences are not only a way to gather knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant in the workplace but also a new way to communicate for learning, guidance, community building, employment and business partnership, and to build identity profiles of individuals, organisations and communities.

Unfortunately but undoubtedly, competence systems are almost as many as countries and organisations because they are the result of economic, social, but above all, cultural and organisational consensus processes that have produced different models, systems or simply practices of representation and aggregation of competencies.

 

Making competences and skills transparent and sharable

The TRACE project aims at increasing the transparency of competencies and skills among EU countries, regions and sectors, and to foster the uptake and adoption of eLearning through a better understanding of the competencies-related challenges that still exist in the eLearning sector.

TRACE will develop, implement and test a coherent, systemic framework for the transparency and interoperability of competences systems in the European knowledge-based societies. In this way it will contribute to the mobility of European citizens and professionals and to the increased efficiency of the European knowledge and labour markets. The framework for the comparison of competences will provide a seamless infrastructure in Europe for learning and professional development services in the context of work-based learning and the overall lifelong learning perspective necessary to support future societies.

To achieve this aim, the project will pursue the following objectives:

  • To get a comprehensive and integrated view of current practices about competence systems at EU level and at national level, building on the knowledge developed in the field until now and increasing its relevance and usability
  • To propose, starting from a sound methodological ground, a synthesis framework to represent different approaches and methods used by institutional systems, professional entities, enterprises and other organisations
  • To propose and test a “translation approach” that, in coherence with EUROPASS Single Framework development, allows understanding and communication on the content of competencies in the different systems and countries
  • To relate the proposed system and tools to the major European and national lifelong learning and guidance projects and services and to eLearning standards
