Recognition of Key Competencies


Trans-National level

In national project “with Appreciation towards the key competences” in Finland we have created a skills criteria for assessment of the migrants key competences and a model in which we can assess key competences in a concerete activities and tasks. The emphasis is on the strengths that a person has. We focused also on the competences that a person should develop in order to reach their goals. The assessment of key competences serves not only as a guidance model for further steps (education, working life) but also as an empowerment tool for recognizing persons strengths and channeling them so that it actually helps the person in many areas of life. We assess the skills in concrete activities that allows everybody to show their skills in daily life tasks.

Key Competences

“Literacy competence ;Multilingual competence ;Mathematical competence and competence in science, technology, and engineering ;Digital competence ;Personal, social, and learning to learn competence ;Citizenship competence (to understand the society and its’ structure) ;Entrepreneurship competence such as strategic thinking, problem solving and initiative ;Cultural awareness and expression competence. ;”

Results & Impacts

When assessing persons key competences and reflecting this to their background and goals that they have, will empower the person, give concrete information on their strengths and weaknessess. This will help guidance and counselling more than traditional guidance conversations. This will also give information on the assessor on what are the common key competences that people need to develop, and this information can be used when answering to education needs. This helps also the matching of the recruitment processes.

“Suggestions for how the case can be implemented”

Assessment of key competences in concrete activities and tasks could easily be used in schools, at workplaces, in trade unions, in organisations etc. Target group can be students, unemployed, workers etc.
