‘Competence-based education and training’ has emerged as a dominant force in the development of vocational education and training, both nationally and internationally. But this presentation suggests that qualifications central to the UK system and to other nations’ systems are based on defective notions of competence. It will look at leading research on the structure of competence and suggest that qualifications cannot be considered separately from learning programmes. It will focus particularly on a crucial distinction – between ‘competence’ and ‘professional formation’.
