Categorisation of competencies

In Canada/Québec, for instance, competencies are categorized as (1) Key/Cross-curricular competencies; (2) Subject-bound competencies, and (3) Lifelong learning competencies. In Guatemala they are divided into (1) Framework competencies; Area competencies; Subject/Strand competency; Grade competencies. In Indonesia competency standards are being developed with regard to (a) Cross-cutting competencies; and (b) Subject-bound competencies, that on their turn, are divided into standard competencies (of a more general nature) and basic competencies (as illustrations or specification of the subject-bound standard competencies).
