The aim of BILT’s Trends Mapping Study is to identify trends in new qualifications and competencies as society, economies and labour markets evolve in ever-faster cycles. With relevant new qualifications and competencies identified, the Trends Mapping Study explores innovative strategies for their integration into curricula and training regulations. It further explores options for the implementation of new qualifications and competencies in teaching and training through the use of new methods and technologies, as well as adequate teacher and trainer training. Selected working examples of applied projects and initiatives offer a wide range of illustrations.

Having national qualifications and competencies in view, the BILT Project supports collaboration activities that are targeted to better understand the state-of-play and enhance national as well as multi-national TVET capacities, to generate new knowledge and to share information on national TVET practices, e.g. through innovation and learning examples and implementation examples. Furthermore, a structured exchange in the respective topic takes place between the European and the African UNEVOC Network as well as between the European and Asian UNEVOC Network in 2021.
