What is Competency-Based Learning?

What is Competency-Based Learning?

Competency-based learning engages participants in applied-learning assignments that integrate with workplace responsibilities. They learn by doing the work!

Rather than lectures and rote learning, participants are given real-world applied projects that provide them with the skills and expertise they need to be successful. This hands-on learning is supported by coaching from Westminster’s faculty and expert practitioners who assure that participants understand the principles of each course or seminar, and master the pre-determined learning goals.
