Competences as the Core Element of the European Qualifications Framework
Bohlinger, Sandra
European Journal of Vocational Training, v42 n3-v43 n1 p96-112 2007-2008
The development and implementation of the EQF, as a meta-framework for the promotion of transparency, quality assurance, mobility and mutual recognition of qualifications, has given rise to some difficulties. These are due partly to different definitions of competences, skills and knowledge. Taking the German-speaking countries as an example, the author outlines the difficulties presented by the development of a common terminology as a basis for the common reference levels and discusses some possible consequential problems of implementing the EQF in these countries. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
