Romania - The development of qualifications based on learning outcomes

This system level case study explains how Romania quality assures the development of initial VET qualifications which are based on learning outcomes. The development of qualifications for school and work based learning is based on the following main phases:

  • occupational analysis - each occupation is described in relation to the main tasks and requirements;
  • competence description – the production of a detailed description of the competences which are required for each task;
  • development of learning outcomes – a description of the learning outcomes which are expected. These are mapped against the National Qualification Framework;
  • the learning outcomes are clustered or ‘grouped’ into units;
  • the development of assessment criteria for each unit.
