As part of the debate about competences and competence assessment, the DIE developed ProfilPASS as a tool for assessment and counselling with a scientific background. ProfilPASS supports a systematic identification and documentation of skills and competences - independent of how and where these skills were acquired.
The tool is aimed at counsellors and teachers in educational institutions, freelance trainers and coaches, teachers of vocational schools and schools for general education, personnel managers in companies and educational consultants of associations.
The ProfilPASS system also includes the qualification of counsellors and trainers. It was developed and tested on a national scale for several years as part of project, which was funded by the German government and the Federal states.
The service unit offers advice to interested parties, ProfilPASS counsellors, dialogue centres and multipliers, who seek support for using the ProfilPASS system.
