Reference framework for implementing an approach to support competency-based education and training

English | Français

The primary anticipated result of this reference framework is to create a tool that is flexible and easy to use. Section 1 presents regional differences in education management in Canada. Sections 2 and 3 present several fundamentals and parameters that are referred to in the five subsequent sections. The benchmarks in the first three sections of the document are also framework elements that guide Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in the implementation of its institutional support projects. The definitions provided should also serve as a reference for readers who wish to understand CICan’s vision and familiarize themselves with the concepts presented in this framework document. These sections define the meaning of principles and vocabulary to enable comprehensive understanding.

Sections 4, 5 and 6 cover the CBA cycle from the development to the implementation of programmes in training institutions, including learning assessment. Section 7 focuses specifically on the paradigm shifts that result from CBA implementation. Though the paradigm shifts for given topics are presented throughout each section, it was important to highlight the most important points and the requirements these shifts entail. Finally, Section 8 deals with the crosscutting aspects of the CBA, which are also covered within each section due to their importance.
