Competences are always connected to a specific context (intercultural work, youth work, social work, etc.). This makes them challenging to explore and assess. For this reason, competence development frameworks vary according to target groups, youth workers and work context.
Our proposed competence model supports training and quality in youth work. It offers the opportunity to develop training strategies, training courses and will allow you to analyse your own competences and address personal challenges. The competence model is a good basis for peer-support, peer-review and (self-) assessment. It gives impulses that will encourage youth workers to try out new things and invest in personal and professional development.
