European Inventory on Validation: 2016 update online

16. March 2017 - 12:48

The 2016 update of the European Inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning provides a unique record on how validation is being used at national, regional and local level in Europe.

It contains a state-of-play and overview of developments for 33 European countries since the 2014 update and is illustrated by good practise examples. The inventory reports are a source of information to encourage more dialogue between the different stakeholders in developing and implementing validation in Europe. The key objective is to support Member States so that more learners and workers acquire and make visible new skills to support their career and further learning and to enhance their quality of life.

3s experts have prepared the inventory reports for Austria (Karin Luomi-Messerer), Bulgaria (Mariya Dzhengozova) and the Czech Republic (Lubomir Valenta).
