INDRODUCTION

The professional identity of Adults Trainers is a very valuable asset to implement a policy of Lifelong Learning in Europe.
Several Member States have recognised the specificity of Adults Trainers and have established -mostly by initiative of professional associations- qualification frameworks and professional certificates. However, mobility of trainers, and recognition of trainers’ qualifications is constrained by the lack of a common European qualification and competence framework.
While the European Qualification Framework is proposed as a “translator” among national qualifications,have no common reference scheme to define their qualification and competency profile. This is an obstacle to mobility and recognition not only at trans-national level within Europe but also at the trans-sectoral level within the same country (e.g. from corporate training to the continuing training department of a University, or from adult education centres to re-conversion of over-45 unemployed workers).
In addition to this, the use of ICT in work and learning is creating new challenges and new opportunities to adult learners and their trainers, that require a serious review of existing qualifications. The decision to start the development of a competence framework in the Financial Services Sector comes from the large experience in terms of vocational training and certification processes.
On that sense, the FSS has detected the need to invest resources on human capital by teaching, training, coaching, and mentoring their employees throughout Europe.
