EQF and ECTS: Best practices in comparison

Typology of knowledge, skills and competences: clarification of the concept and prototype. 2005, 131 pp. Cedefop Reference Series. Catalogue no. 11-73-05-526-EN-C

The third in a series of Cedefop publications dealing with technical aspects of the European Qualification Framework and European Credit Transfer System, this book analyses current practice in countries that have made progress with evaluating and defining competence. It proposes a typology of knowledge, skills and competence, to be used not as an instrument of ‘harmonisation’ between countries, but as a template to enable comparison. The aim is to promote mobility in every sense, bringing work-based learning and knowledge acquired in higher education closer together.
