The Competences framework includes descriptions of the scope of knowledge, skills, and competences each mentor providing services through the platform, as well as each mentee receiving them, should possess and continuously develop.

The framework is based on:

  • the wording and principles of European Qualification Framework;
  • previous studies on mentoring and interactions between mentors and mentees;
  • focus groups, held in all partner countries with both potential mentors and mentees of the platform.

Consider that there are differences in acquiring and mastering the following knowledges, skills, and competences. It is also important to keep in mind that all the listed qualities develop during the process of mentoring for both parties. For more information on this topic, you can look at the Guidelines for mentors and mentees.
