ComProCom   Communicating Professional Competence

 

 

ComProCom is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership project (2015-1-EL01-KA202-013960) which ran between 2015 and 2017.  It was concerned with developing more adequate descriptions of competence for higher-level occupations.  The project had partners in six countries and involved framework development and trialling in five professional or industry sectors.  The project leader was EETAA, based in Athens, and Stan Lester was the scientific co-ordinator (intellectual lead).

ComProCom has agreed a definition and produced a model of professional competence which has potential for improving clarity across Europe, without requiring any particular approach to VET, professional formation or qualifications.  A short paper outlining this model and discussing why it is needed is available here:
