NCS 직업기초능력 고찰
The purpose of this study is to identify the nature of NCS vocational basic competencies that some universities and colleges adopt in the composition of competency-based curriculum, and to define the communication skills that should be dealt with the most important of the basic competencies. The purpose of this paper is to examine the problems and alternatives, focusing on the goals and achievement levels centered on the instructor s manual and curriculum guidelines. Competency-based curricula should include not only knowledge and skills but also attitudes, values, and self-esteem, but current vocational competencies are not fully considered. For example, according to the guidelines, only the minimum occupational basic competencies required for a specific job are selected and taught in the department or organized as a liberal arts subject. In the case of communication skill, the subordinate comprehension consists of document understanding, document preparation, listening, expression, and basic foreign language skills. Learning objectives are formally described, so it is easy to organize knowledge-oriented classes, and achievement levels are described according to educational background, which is contrary to the intention of NCS. Therefore, it is necessary to make a full correction and complementary work, and that the improvement of communication competencies should be designed to be learner-centered class considering the context, persuasion and negotiation power.
Key Words: NCS, competency, basic vocational competencies, communication skill, learning outcomes, learning objectives, sub-competencies
