The concept of lifelong learning based on the acquisition and development of competences proves to be a significant trend in the Czech curriculum reform and an important milestone of human resource management and development. With regard to its social dimension and usefulness within company strategies, it can be considered important for adult education and human resource management and development. This entry intends to present the competency based model of individuals’ learning and development as now prevalent in the Czech Republic and the European Union. It further aims to present data gathered in researches,carried out in 2005 and 2009, which focused on the dynamics of the labour market demands.The questionnaire research addressed 293 respondents from small and medium-sized companies. The other part of the research focused on an analysis of vacancy advertising for selected positions. These researches show the need for lifelong learning and development of employees, and, above all, the necessary ability of organizations to anticipate certain economic phenomena and to react more flexibly to the outer economic environment. This way the organizations shall be competitive. The competency-based model seems optimal here, enabling an individual to succeed on the labour market of the globalized society affected by economic and social changes as well as rapid technological advance. At the same time, it provides organizations with an effective tool of labour efficiency and management.
