INTRODUCTION TO SKILLSBANK


Skillsbank is a web based toolkit targeting career guidance, recognition of prior learning and individual training support. It uses principles based on ECVET, the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training. This is done by aggregation of competences into qualifications through using Learning Outcome descriptions.The Skillsbank system offers a tool for qualification definitions transferred into structured matrixes. The matrixes are built based on Learning Outcomes (LO). A LO can be described in a holistic way, or be divided into specified descriptions of the competences, knowledge and skills. Skillsbank offers as well a Recognition of Prior Learning assessment module where each LO can be self-assessed by the individual using Skillsbank. Then assessors validate and conclude with a consolidated assessment to be included in the individual competence portfolios. Skillsbank is compatible with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) for lifelong learning.
