Qualification design

The units of learning outcomes are accepted as the main descriptor of the qualifications. According to the European Recommendations, the units which design a qualification should: outline in an eligible and understandable way the knowledge, skills and competences; be coherently constructed and organised in respect to the overall qualification; and allow the discrete assessment and validation of learning outcomes organised in it. Following these requirements an EC-AQUA competence map has been created, comprising description of 13 occupational profiles divided in 5 subgroups relevant to the water supply and waste water treatment targets in the sector: Teaching / Training professionals, General subject trainers, Specific subject trainers, Institution managers, and Policy decision makers. Applying several descriptive elements (the basic title of the qualification, the EQF reference level to which a qualification relates, description of general and specific profile activities in respect to knowledge, skills, wider competences and behaviours) charts presenting qualifications are developed. Each EC-AQUA occupational profile is described in terms of learning outcomes, comprising professional, methodical, personal and social competences to be gained by the learner upon defined period of training in the frame of the EC-AQUA project. Its content is simply designated, and is understandable for the labour market operators (teachers/trainers, employees, business people, social partners, etc).
