LEVEL5 is a long-term validation system to assess and validate competence developments in informal and non-formal learning settings.
LEVEL5 is based on a three-dimensional model which maps the development of:
- Knowledge (-> cognitions)
- Skills (-> actions) and
- Attitudes (-> emotions and values)
along five quality levels – from beginner to competent expert.
This model forms the basis for the core LEVEL5 instruments:
The LEVEL5 cube visualises a person’s competence development in a specific (preferably practical) learning field which is described in the so called LEVEL5 reference system.
The LEVEL5 reference systems facilitate the design and planning of informal/non-formal learning and the validation of competences in a specific practical action and learning field
