INTED2014, the 8th International Technology, Education and Development Conference was held in Valencia (Spain), on the 10th, 11th and 12th of March, 2014. A paper coordinated by TUDOR Centre was presented. With this paper; we explained how the project partners are developing the certification scheme respecting a process that ensures its quality. We will also explain how we ensure the quality of the process itself.
As the Academic tutor is not a recognized and regulated profession across Europe. Like many others professions, no formal training and diploma recognize teachers’ competences to support their students during their internship in companies. The certification developed by the Certitude Project team will contribute to the tutors’ validation of non-formal and informal learning. It will also contribute to the transparency, the recognition and the evaluation of tutors’ competences and qualifications.
