The Learning Outcomes approach

Competences are accepted as the “most valuable resource” for an individual, a community, an area, a business activity. They are key tool for innovation process at work. The choice of using a competence based approach in designing EC-AQUA learning model is coherent with what is done at a National and European level. Furthermore, this kind of approach introduces the fundamental factor of system integration and enhances the transparency and transferability of services offered by various VET systems in the sector. In this respect EC-AQUA innovative content is organised in certification units of learning outcomes, designed in such a way as to provide a consistent and structured learning process and clear criteria for assessment. For each EC-AQUA occupational profile at corresponding EQF reference level (5, 6 or 7) adequate Learning Outcomes (LO) are created. The knowledge part of the formulated LOs is built from relevant Learning Pathways / Short Intensive Courses LPs / SICs, which are selected on the basis of complete work assignments, working processes, areas of work, fields of action or fields of competence, which are typical of the particular profession. In order to validate and recognize learning outcomes, which have been achieved in EC-AQUA learning context, corresponding ECVET points are granted to the learner. The resultant ECVET points, noted in the brackets (e.g. EC: 8), are allocated in accordance with the relative "value" of the unit of learning outcomes measured on the basis of the defined qualification.
