Experiential Learning & Proving Competence


One of our business areas is keen to exploit experiential learning, making it more self-directed rather than “sheep dipping” training, however as a chemical manufacturing organisation we are subject to audits from customers and HSE with a requirement to prove employee competence.

We wondered whether anyone had any suggestions on how to capture self-directed/experiential learning in order to prove competence - preferably without resorting to observational assessments?

    I would guess that well-structured critical incident analysis would be useful, especially if it were backed up by peer group work (learning set for example).

    You would need to give a little bit of training – a short morning – to ensure that they take a developmental approach.

    email me if you think it would be useful.

    Have you considered looking at NVQ competences in your vocational area ? You might get some ideas by doing so or even look at embarking your guys on an NVQ proper.
