The consultation on the final draft of the Business Mentor competence certification scheme developed by EFCoCert within the Business Mentor Erasmus+ project just finished.

The 54 experts from 12 countries in 3 continents involved in the scheme experts’ committee raised 29 new comments, essentially editorial and mainly addressing the wording within the competence matrix. (The previous draft stage did receive 178 comments which had been dealt with to prepare the final draft.)

But the experts also sent laudatory general comments on the Business Mentor scheme, such as:

  • “This is an incredible achievement, most of which I am happy to support.” (T. Wall, UK)
  • “Even if it seems tedious at first glance, this document is very well done and will be very useful
    to the profession so congratulations for the work done.” (S. Ferreira, FR)
  • “No comments, material really prepared.“ (W. Fabrycka, PL)
  • “Congratulations to the work you have done.” (P. Csizmadia, HU)

Such comments acknowledge both the value of the project’s management, objectives and outcomes

and EFCoCert’s professionalism and expertise of in applying ISO standardization best practices to the

development of competence certification schemes.

Early May 2019, EFCoCert circulated the final draft Business Mentor competence scheme for comments within the scheme experts committee.

The received comments will be dealt with by the end of June so that the pilot testing of the scheme can be organised.

The 4th consortium transnational meeting has been held in Lausanne (CH), organised by EFCoCert the 24-25 April 2019

Robust discussions allowed partners to reach consensus on the methodology to apply for drafting the certification scheme and on key issues raised by the first experts’ comments round.

After the meeting, EFCoCert was able to release the 2nd working draft of the certification scheme for comments within experts.

The official MentorCert website has been launched early 2018.

The site proposes a project presentation, a short summary on project partners, first project results, and news and photo galleries related to the meetings. It will be regularly updated according to the project’s progresses.
