Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of extant literature on competence proficiency scaling. To structure the field, the chapter distinguishes between three aspects of competence proficiency scaling: (1) methodological approaches to competence proficiency scaling and the methodological and conceptual critique of this phenomenon; (2) the contextual factors of competence proficiency scaling, including organizational and societal factors; and (3) the implications of competence proficiency scaling to the vocational and professional education and didactics. The chapter overviews a range of different approaches to competence proficiency scaling applied in the vocational education and training, higher education, and human resource management by synthesizing the perspectives to competence proficiency scaling from the different disciplines, such as educations science, education sociology, work psychology, and human resource management and development. Particular attention is paid to the variety of the functions and application fields of competence proficiency scaling, such as assessment of competence acquired in the learning and work process, identification and hierarchical structuring of the requirements of performance in the occupational fields, and identification of the potential of competence development and progression in the occupational fields.
