The measurement of competence is an essential element of strengthening the potential of enterprises, as a starting point for the development of its employees, the diagnosis of competency gaps and the choice of strategic directions. Intelectual Outputs of the project, provide a complete set of necessary tools to conduct research competence from beginning to end. It's not just a description of the method itself, but also a set of concrete, ready-to-use materials. Previously used personality tests and other tools, always referring to personality theory, trying to answer the question: what is the test person. Our method goes a step further, giving the answer to the question: what is a person in the context of their work. As a result, the measurement result of the social competence (treated as one part of the qualification) is more meaningful and valuable for the assessor qualification. This project will be run by 4 Partners: PROFES (PL) - leader, e-peers (PL), MERIG (A) and HOMINEM (ES). The primary objective of the project is to create, describe and evaluate Method of Competency Assessment in Work Contexts (CAWC) and provide any tools for its use in practice.

Additional value is to have a portfolio of products tool for the diagnosis of qualifications according to the EQF. • Universities - First supplement their curricula with innovative, practical content. Second, can use the competency tests in the method for the determination of key competences for their students and graduates. This allows them to better tailor curricula to the real needs of the labor market. • Students and people interested in competence development - broaden their knowledge of competency management with innovative content. As the people of this target group are usually interested in working in the HR area, they can use their knowledge as their advantage in the labor market. The results of the project have a significant impact on not only a direct target group of the project, but also on people that will use the Method in testing mode. They are all employees of companies in which the test method will be implemented, customers of consulting firms that use the method, and people generally interested in improving their competence. With the results of competence tests they gain knowledge of the subject, which can be used for the development of competence, and thus to find a place of employment in line with their actual qualifications.
