This study addresses questions relevant for the further development of ESCO, the European multilingual classification of Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations, in particular the development of its qualifications pillar.

As part of the implementation of the strategy for validation of non-formal and informal learning in Austria, an online portal is being developed to provide the general public with comprehensible information on available validation measures and their position in the qualification system as well as on accompanying measures, e.g. advisory services or training measures.

The Recommendation of the European Council on validation of non-formal and informal learning calls on EU Member States to introduce arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal learning by 2018 and to submit national reports documenting the state of implementation of the Recommendation.

The study focuses on two instruments: the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) and European Quality Assurance in Vocational Education and Training (EQAVET).
