The project will develop competence profiles for tutors and mentors that can be related to the European Qualifications Framework. These will aim to answer the question of what the most important learning outcomes are for tutors and mentors in order for them to give the best possib­le support to jobseekers both during training and at the time of their entry into the labour market or employment. Six modules for the training of tutors and mentors were developed in a previous project and these will be adapted in the current project according to the competence matrix and to meet the require­ments of ISO 17024. All participants of the pilot modules will gain certificates provided they fulfill the relevant competence requirements. If they achieve only some of the competences they will get a pre-certification statement, and provided that they meet the additional requirements within three years they will gain certification as a mentor or tutor according to ISO 17014.
