COMBA Competence Based Approach


The COMBA project aimed to encourage the adoption and diffusion of a model able to:

1. support guidance and training system actions, assuming competence as: – a constant reference for trainers, to promote and cultivate people’s attitude and motivation to make them independently capable of activating entrepreneurial behaviour; – a guiding value for career guidance staff to diagnose users’ possession of skills, qualities and entrepreneurial behaviour that represent a real, significant competitive advantage in the business world. 2. stimulate the career guidance and training sectors to diversify and personalize services offered to diagnose and develop “business”, skills, guiding users to select and take training courses. 3. facilitate people’s access to career guidance/training services that facilitate and nurture a sense of initiative and enterprise, developing cognitive, capacity and behavioral competence elements to combine and mobilize to translate ideas into actions.
