The aim of TRANSIt is to have a positive impact on the development of students’  key competencies by building and strengthening teacher's competency based educationTo achieve this, a pilot teachers training methodology will be developed on the didactics and e-assessment of key transversal competences, which could be adopted by interested stakeholders promoting educational change. The methods of the project are founded on a holistic view of students learning, personal and social development, going beyond subject boundaries and finding application in a wide spectrum of curriculum subjects.

The TRANSIt approach contributes to the development of creativity, adaptation to the rapidly changing circumstances, intercultural and multilingual competences, social development, “learning to learn” competences and an improved perception of one’s own capacity to solve problems. TRANSIt aims to add its contribution towards the improvement of the quality of competence education by improving:

a) teachers’ awareness of key competences and

b) teachers’ professional skills regarding the didactics and e-assessment of the key competences with the use of ePortfolios, supporting them to bring European and national policies into practice.

The impact of the training material will be assessed by authentic (nontraditional) assessment methods analysing qualitative dimensions, such as the behavioural change of teachers towards the importance of competence acquisition by their students, qualitative and quantitative characteristics of user-generated content uploaded in the e-portfolios. An effective training approach will directly contribute to designing such teaching and learning activities that may increase students’ motivation and thereby supporting and enhancing the acquisition of transversal key competencies by all students, closely reflecting the aim of the LLP programme in terms of improving students’ motivation to learn, and learning to learn skills.
