(competence-based): Sometimes means the same as ‘outcome-based’, i.e. where qualifications are based on clear statements of what the learner must know or be able to do. Sometimes ‘competence’ refers to occupational competence, i.e. a specific type of outcome referring to what the learner must be able to do to perform a work role competently
