Since December 2007 blinc eG has been appointed by its members to foster the valorisation of the LEVEL5 approach for Competence Oriented learning and Validation.
Starting in 2012 we have been constantly customising and contextualising our approach and the related instruments in various informal learning areas; in Mobility Actions, Volunteering, Intercultural
and Entrepreneurial learning programmes, European Project works and various learning on the job settings. We have been piloting LEVEL5 in different sectors in continuing professional developments,
for instance in the service sector, in HR development, CSR or in CPD projects for educational professionals.
Since 2007 blinc has organised seven REVEAL conferences with more than 600 participants on innovative approaches on competence oriented learning and validation.
Since 2016 binc has been focusing on innovative training and learning sectors like entrepreneurship education, design thinking, circular economy, sustainable development. Our vision is to provide innovative, technology supported learning offers to enhance the development in these domains.
