FLEXI-PATH – transparency and recognition of adult educator qualifications
Flexi-Path is a Leonardo da Vinci Project of the EU LifeLong Learning Programme. Seven partners from all over Europe worked together in order to develop a validation instrument to certify adult educator competencies. Flexi-Path aims to facilitate the transparency and recognition of adult educator qualifications across Europe making them comparable by having a common reference (EQF) and a common Master adult educator profile which promotes the idea of mobility through standardised educational programmes and qualification levels.
The integrated common competency profile
The competency profile developed by the project consortium will be the prequel product for the validation instrument for the flexible learner. The competency profile is a set of skills, knowledge and competences defined and described by the partners to measure qualifications of adult educators in Europe on the 7th EQF level.
The Self-Evaluation Toolkit
The Self-Evaluation Toolkit is designed in form of a handbook to record and document acquired formal and non-formal competences. Adult educators can use the handbook for validation themselves, also it is supposed to be implemented to be used in adult education and training organizations. The creation of the Self-Evaluation Toolkit is geared to the self-validation instrument in the European project VINEPAC. The toolkit is available in 6 languages.
