Assess Plus Project Update – Apr 2021

Within the Assess Plus project, work is ongoing into the development of content for ASSESS PLUS Virtual Campus (IO2). This process will create a structured set of innovative Training contents and Practical Activites on Skills Audits in Adult Education, developed on the basis of the European Framework of Competences (IO1).

INQS is responsible for learning unit 1, which outlines Knowing and applying the legislative framework and background of skills audit

As outlined in a previous post, regardless of the tools you use for skills audits, a key consideration for any and all of them will be your responsibilities re GDPR – “General Data Protection Regulation” – which is an EU law on data protection and privacy. In particular, it outlines rules for the protection of personal data and a company’s responsibilities to process, store, retain, etc an individual’s data. It is an important element for skills audits because any skills audit may require one to gather, process and store data from the participant(s) in the skills audit.

In addition to resources such as the EU data protection website, it may also be useful to look at some existing GDPR templates such as to help you to develop your own GDPR template for consideration

The same website – – also provides additional useful GDPR tools and resources, such as a GDPR Checklist
