EU WBL MENTOR COMPETENCE CERTIFICATION SCHEME

The official #Mentor4WBL@EU website has been launched on May 27th 2019.

The site proposes a project presentation, a short summary on project partners, first project results, and news and photo galleries related to the meetings. It will be regularly updated according to the project’s progresses.

The 2nd consortium transnational meeting has been held in Kenilworth (UK), organised by C4FF the 10-11 April 2019.

The meeting allowed to validate the IO1 (WBL Mentor’s job profile), dedicated to serve as input to the other outcomes: course curriculum, competence matrix, certification scheme.

Robust discussions allowed partners to reach consensus on the methodology to apply for drafting the certification scheme and on key issues raised by the first experts’ comments round.

A multiplier event has also been held at Birmingham University, where EFCoCert presented the draft competence matrix and the future competence certification scheme.

After the meeting, EFCoCert was able to release the 2nd working draft of the certification scheme for comments within experts. 

By the end of February 2019, EFCoCert circulated the first draft WBL Mentor competence matrix for comments within the scheme experts committee.

The matrix has been constructed according to the Deming PDCA cycle, by integrating the competences derived from the preliminary research of IO1 on WBL Mentors tasks and requirements throughout EU.

The received comments will be dealt with ahead of the 2nd consortium meeting in Kenilworth (UK) early April 2019.
