validation of Adult Education Trainers

The DAVE project has produced an adult education trainer competence profile and a methodology for validating competence of Adult Education Trainers (AETs), called Expertise Check up. The competence profile is based on desk research on existing competence profiles at OECD level and on a need analysis carried out in a number of adult education providers including the partners. 

The expertise check up is based on the competence profile and includes the following steps:

  • Self assessment, performed by the adult trainer
  • 1st interview that aims to review the results of self-assessment, identify strong and week points and develop an improvement action plan.
  • 2nd interview that aims to assess the implementation of action plan.

The expertise check up can be used for selection of new teachers, evaluation of teachers and continuous improvement of their skills and competences. 

This project is a multilateral project supported by European Commission in the Grundtvig Programme. There are 6 partners involved in the project – from Italy, Greece, France, Sweden, Germany and Latvia.
