Plan for the Implementation of Assessment of Competence


The plan for the implementation of assessment of competence is part of the quality management system at Perho Culinary, Tourism & Business College.

The plan sets out the guidelines and procedures for assessment of competence decided on by the education provider, for use in the assessment of competence in all vocational qualifications: vocational upper secondary qualification, further vocational qualifications and specialist vocational qualifications. The aim of the plan is to ensure the uniform quality of demonstration and assessment of competence, students’ legal protection and the consistency of procedures.

Perho Culinary, Tourism & Business College’s Plan for the implementation of competence assessment is based on legislation on vocational education and training (Act 531/2017 chapters 5 and 6; Decree 673/2017, section 9), qualification requirements and the guidelines of the Ministry of Education and Culture and Finnish National Agency for Education. The implementation plans for assessment of competence have been drawn up in working groups specialising in the field of vocational education and qualifications, responsible for the up-to-date status of the plans, for example when legislation, qualification requirements or operating methods change.

The plans for the implementation of assessment of competence steer the instructions for and guidance of students, and the orientation of staff members and working life cooperation actors.
