In the emerging Knowledge‐based Economy, it is becoming more and more important for adult
tutors to be clear about what they know and can do what they provide as niche “producer,”
what they need to be able to do in the future. Traditional academic credentials do not capture
these notions as a competence and learning can be recorded through e‐portfolio building
SM, NBU project
The paper describes the efforts of the School of Management, New Bulgarian University,
applying the competence route through e‐portfolio building assessment. The purpose of assessment is to find out whether adult tutor/ trainer can do a task to the required standard or not. Applying this to the situation at hand, assessment is about gathering evidence to prove
they have met the specified performance criteria of the Standard for flexible distance learning.
In doing so, it enables the tutors to receive an accreditation of prior experience & learning.
