In order to anchor sustainable development as a fixed core principle of VET, it is necessary to identify and describe relevant competencies to be imparted during VET. This article presents a model for the description of sustainability-related competencies in the food production sector. The model was created within the scope of evaluation research carried out on Funding Line III pilot projects for the “Development of domain-specific sustainability competencies in craft trade and other occupations in the food industry”, part of BIBB’s main funding focus “Vocational education and training for sustainable development” (VESD).
