Scenario #1
Ranking competences of RFCDC

Ranking competences of RFCDC

Aims / objectives

The aim is to find out which of the competences are particularly relevant in one's own work or for one's own target group and which are, perhaps, less relevant.

Description of the method

  • Every educator looks at the “butterfly” model of the RFCDC individually and works on the following question: Which five competences are especially relevant for your educational work? Write down the five competences you have chosen. (10 minutes)
  • Reflection in groups of four educators on some guiding questions. (35 minutes)
  • All groups come together to share the results of their discussions. (15 minutes)

Usability in social work

The method is relevant for social workers and can be used in their training. Through awareness raising, more targeted competences can be strengthened and tasks are concretised and adapted to real problem situations.
