The Education Department of Council of Europe has developed a new theoretical model of the competences (i.e., the values, attitudes, skills, knowledge and understanding) that are required for democratic culture. The Education Department is now developing descriptors that can be used to assess the extent to which a learner has acquired these competences. Feedback from education professionals at all levels on descriptors for these competences are welcomed.
You can do this by completing a questionnaire through this link. This questionnaire is available in English, French, Russian, Georgian, Italian, Romanian and Spanish. German and Serbian will be added shortly.
We encourage you to participate in this questionnaire and influence the development of new theoretical models of the competences!
