International CAF Practitioners Network launched

In December 2022 the CAF Centre of KDZ launched the international EFAC Practitioners Network. The aim of the network is to provide a moderated framework for international exchange on the Common Assessment Framework. KDZ hosts this format to bring together experienced EFACs from around the world to exchange professional experience and strengthen practical knowledge in delivering Professional External Feedback Procedures (PEF).

  • Setting the scene for international exchange and strengthening the EFAC network
  • Continuous professional exchange of the EFAC Practitioners Network (all two months) in fast-lane online-sessions
  • Sharing experiences and collect valuable insights from the other EFACs
  • Boosting and further development of common practices in delivering PEF procedures
  • Design and methodologies for CAF implementation

Many thanks to the 30 international participants.
