The digitisation of working and learning environments is bringing about changes in the way we learn and work. Learning environments are called upon to respond to the need to prepare students to progress in digital and hybrid environments and to become autonomous learners ready to exploit the potential of digital tools and environments.

The approach to learning work-based learning enhanced by the digital component (Digital WBL) that we deal with in the project envisages a vision in which teachers and trainers do not merely replace their current teaching strategies, but rethink and re-evaluate them in the light of new potentials and developments, thus developing a future vision of learning together with learners.

Thus, with this competence framework, we identify the competencies needed to provide learners with good, rich Digital Work-Based Learning experiences.

The competence framework presented in this report has been designed in a multistep research process, including the analysis of resources and frameworks such as DigCompOrg and DigCompEdu, the use of the SELFIE WBL tool, and the Digital WBL Ambassador Programme was set up, serving as a training and research programme. A bottom-up approach has been taken, starting from the specific needs and challenges of the teachers to organise, develop and manage virtual work-based learning spaces.

The results of the surveys led to 6 key competences for the VET Educator experienced in the realisation of Digital WBL experiences.
