Answer the European survey on validation of transversal competences

The survey addresses experts, practitioners, policy-makers, civil servants, project managers and others involved in the field of guidance and/or validation of skills and competencies.

 

The EU-funded project TRANSVAL-EU is European policy experimentation concerning innovative approaches for the validation of transversal skills and competencies obtained in non-formal and informal learning contexts, including guidance services.

The project will develop and test validation training curricula and programmes, as well as standardized competence profiles for validation and guidance practitioners with a specific focus on transversal competencies.

About transversal skills and competences

Transversal skills and competencies (TSCs) are learned and proven abilities that are commonly seen as necessary or valuable for effective action in virtually any kind of work, learning or life activity. They are “transversal” because they are not exclusively related to any particular context (job, occupation, academic discipline, civic or community engagement, occupational sector, group of occupational sectors, etc.)
