The key competence acquisition by every young person is one of the long term objectives of the updated strategic framework for European cooperation. Most of the EU Member States are formulating and at least beginning to implement policies that move their school systems from being predominantly input led and subject-oriented towards curricula which include competences, cross-curricular activities, active and individual learning, as well as a focus on learning outcomes. The enhancement of transversal key competences of students can take place through building teachers capacity for competence oriented education. This paper presents the outcomes from the needs analysis survey on key competence acquisition in Greece, as well as the design and localisation of the Training Framework and environment based on the collected responses and the specifications set from the Greek Curriculum, the community support mechanisms that have been developed, as well as the impact of these mechanisms based on indicators and survey results from users.
