The term "learning outcome" was introduced into the European debate on VET in response to the increase of transnational transparency and mobility. It was a matter of creating a "common language" enabling communication across system boarders as well as the transfer of learning outcomes from one learning context to another. Learning outcome orientation has therefore become an important element of systemic development in many countries’ education policy. It also already influences the development of curricula in many ways.
The project TrainCom contributes to the realization of learning outcome orientation in VET. It is based upon the insights of the projects "EDGE – Allowance of learning outcomes between dual jobs that require training on the basis of ECVET". The usage of learning units that are described as competency-oriented, can, associated with a continued ascertainment of competency, contribute to the increase of quality in VET.
A requirement for that is the educating of staff in order to shape competence orientated learning processes. In TrainCom a multilingual internet based learning program for the arrangement of competency-oriented learning-teaching-processes in VET will be developed. Target groups are trainers and teachers in VET.
