Background and Focus

TVET system have always benefited from technological advances to explore new research areas and improve the teaching learning process. Over recent years, there has been an increased interest in incorporating competencies into TVET curriculum to insure the teaching meets industry required needs. A competency based training focuses on the outcomes of learning by defining goals and processes to achieve them. It contributes to student’s career readiness since the main goal is to let students progress at their own pace and measure their achievement against a standard of performance.

Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgments on whether competency has been achieved. The purpose of assessment is to confirm that an individual can perform the standard expected in the workplace, as expressed in the relevant endorsed industry or enterprise competency standards. Assessments through this course will require participants to complete a variety of written work, oral questions, practical demonstrations and assignment/portfolio presentations.

Competency Based Assessment is an important element of the competency-based training system. It states that “the competency based training system will be supported by the development of training packs comprising of a set of industry-based competency standards, assessment guidelines and eventually, qualification specification for each sector. NVQs assessments are conducted to assess candidate’s skills, knowledge and attitudes against set industry standards through various modes such as demonstrations, simulations, presentations, assignments, projects, creations, and scenarios.

The scope of CBT assessment system includes provision of opportunities for individuals coming from multiple learning pathways i.e. formal, non-formal and informal entries that lead to acquire certificate of full/ complete “National Vocational Qualification” or “Record of Achievements” for single/ multiple competency standards. It also assess the recognition of prior learning as legitimate pathways of assessment for many individuals whose skills have not yet been recognized and certified to acquire national vocational qualification.

In this connection, CPSC is going to organize a webinar on Workforce Development through Credible CBT Assessment. This webinar will be dedicated to CPSC member countries TVET Practitioners to develop and implement the Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) for pilots, including Evidence Based Training (EBT). The topics for discussion in this webinar will focus on the main aspects of CBTA development, implementation and on the evaluation of the available methodologies and practices. The outcome will be aligned the different interpretations and expectations of CBA concept from the various stakeholders’ perspectives
