Creating, Planning and Delivering Competence Oriented Learning

LEVEL5 is not just about validation but it comes as holistic validation and learning system.

Hence it is designed to plan and deliver competence oriented learning – especially in informal and noin-formal contexts where no pre-described learning plans are available.

LEVEL5 learning system in a nutshell:

  • Developing informal and non-formal learning projects
  • Combining learning and validation in a unique competence management approach
  • Providing the approach in connection with e-Learning or blended learning systems
  • Creating Competence Management Systems for private and public entities


The LEVEL5 learning system builds on a simplified Plan-Do-Check step procedure:

The starting point of the planning is the so called “action field” in which the learner is located. It describes context, actions, resources and objectives of his/her activities.
The conversion of this action field into a learning field is facilitated by the LEVEL5 reference systems which derive the competences that are necessary to tackle the actions and solve the tasks in the field.

The delivery of learning is highly dependent on the context. It can range from a rather informal, self guided learning (e.g. in learning on the job or in mobility settings) to more formal arrangements (e.g. in school projects or more guided continuing professional development (CPD) actions).
LEVEL5 largely supports blended, web-aided learning arrangements. The REVEAL community offers state-of-the-art learning technologies and an open learning space for these purposes.

The check-element refers to the validation within LEVEL5. Dependent on the identified action and learning field it covers the identification, documentation, assessment and certification of competences. It is largely based on the LEVEL5 reference systems that facilitate individual and contextualised validation. The learning outcomes are documented in LEVEL5 certificates including the dynamic LEVEL5 cube.
