This presentation introduces the Rounder Sense of Purpose framework of competences for sustainability educators and goes on to describe research to develop assessment criteria. A thematic analysis of student journals provided evidence of three key outcomes: • Understanding of the competences and the issues they raise • Action taken on the basis of the competences • Reflection on the competences themselves and on their own engagement with them. Each of these outcomes were broken down further into three sub-categories or ‘learning aspects’, these listed in the presentation along with means of asssessment.
