A Competence Framework and Competence Assessment indicators
The goal is to construct a Competence Framework for agriculture professionals familiar with drone technology, driven by the European Qualifications Framework, which aims to make qualifications more accessible and comprehensible across countries and systems. A Competence Framework outlines and specifies each unique competency that is required by individuals in a business sector. The Competency Framework will focus on AgroPro specific competencies. The European e-Competence Framework will be used as a reference model. It contains four dimensions: competence areas; reference competences for each area; proficiency levels of each competence; and samples of knowledge and skills related to reference competences.
