Our mission is to build a bridge between theoretical dimension (competency concept and validation frameworks), societal impact (socio-political dimension) and the concrete working fields of actors in formal and non-formal education (field dimension). We want to make concrete methodology accessible, help during planning trainings and empowerment programs and target as well facilitators and educators that have less experience or are less involved in the European and national discourses on non-formal education, didactical principles or identification of competency development. We believe, that innovative competency centered education is following a bottom-up approach. Change starts with empowering facilitators.
The handbooks for facilitators, teacher, trainers, animators or any other educator are published as PDFs and hard copies. They present our experience and methods and aim to support with a balance of theory and practice. Beyond our handbooks you find here other inspiring practice and impulses from all over the world mostly in English language. The library will be updated regularly. Send us your proposal.

The success of competency-centered education is highly depending from the style of facilitation and the attitude of facilitators. Professionality is in this sense the challenge to connect
The Competendo team is offering tailor-made concepts. Competendo training is for train-the-trainer, teacher trainings and experienced in other kind of capacity building in the fields of formal and non-formal education. What we promote in our toolboxes and handbooks is as well what we expect from ourselves.
With events, trainings, networking and an international conference we shape dialogue with trainers, experts, and representatives of the different policy sectors.This dialogue leads to quality in education, to better conditions for competency based learning and to the development of new and better instruments on local, national and European level. Therefore Competendo involves in the already existing networks for Democratic Citizenship Education and includes their valuable findings and outcomes.
