TeBeVAT Process

TeBeVAT process - is a recognition process of informal and non-formal competences and skills for occupations. The process fulfils quality standards that are equal to those found in full qualification programs. The competences and skills meet the contents conveyed of a full qualification on a specific EQF level. 

The TeBeVAT-Process is designed to facilitate learners and developed professionals to collect their learning outcomes, to document and analyse their competences and use this information to create a portfolio for assessment or for future applications strategically.

The phases of the TeBeVAT process include the intake of the candidate as the beginning of the certification process, and finish with the handout of the final certification. It is therefore holistically planned and individually applicable. The phases entail the six following steps: The Identification Phase, the Documentation Phase, the Personal Development Plan, the Assessment, the Appeals Process, and the Certification/Validation.

TeBeVAT not only considers the formal process but provides detailed information regarding the roles of the different stakeholders, e.g., the assessors who assess the competences or the mentor who guides the candidate through the process. The Process also respects not only the quality of the assessment, but it attributes to the individual, i.e., unique learning biographies, unique competence sets and unique personalities. The TeBeVAT project group establishes that the ownership of the recognition process lies in the hand of the learner.
