Goals
Objectives
The goal of this trajectory is to support the development of academic competencies and encourages reflection on this development. As such, it leads specifically to the development of learning skills, self-regulation and self-management skills. Another goal is to prepare for the labour market after graduation.

Didactical concept
The activities in the SCT follow a returning cycle of goal-setting, planning of activities and reflection on study-activities.
Goal setting: based on a self-assessment and an identification of the competencies that wants to be developed, the student develops a personal development plan (PDP)
Planning: based on the goals the student makes up a planning of study-activities and possible resources.
Reflection: The student describes the influence of the activities on the development of the competencies. The acquired or developed competencies are proven. All these elements are part of an individual eportfolio.
The context of the competence development is "the ideal job" after graduation.

The coaches are senior staff members. Each student has an individual coach.

Assessment: The portfolio is assessed by a team of assessors (general criterion: is competence development shown? and are students able to reflect on their development). This team of assessors includes at least one representative of the professional field.
