The concept of competence is increasingly the basis for (re)designing VET. In competence-based VET academic disciplines are no longer starting points for curriculum development. Competence needed for working in practice, however, is. Competence-based learning is a dominant trend in VET in several countries because of fewer expected problems in the transition from school to work. In this study, by means of a focus group session and a Delphi study, a model for competence- based VET is developed. It has been constructed by Dutch researchers and can help VET institutions develop competence-based learning. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
