TRANSVAL-EU — final con­fe­rence in Stockholm

The stakeholder conference entitled "Making All Skills Visible" focused on policy strategies on how to make transversal skills visible and recognised in practice.

At the end of one of the largest European policy expe­ri­ments on the vali­da­ti­on of non-formal and informal learning, around 100 policy makers, experts and vali­da­ti­on and guidance pro­fes­sio­nals met to discuss the policy impli­ca­ti­ons of the outcomes of the TRANSVAL-EU project.

On behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research Eduard Staudecker was one of the panel speakers, repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from the Swedish Ministry of Education and the National Agency for Education, the Nordic Council of Ministers, the European Commission and the OECD also con­tri­bu­ted to the programme. In addition, policy makers from the other field trial countries (Belgium, Italy, Lithuania, Poland) were involved in the dis­cus­sion on the inclusion of trans­ver­sal com­pe­ten­ces in national action plans.

While the focus on the first day of the con­fe­rence was on questions of the political imple­men­ta­ti­on of new approa­ches to making trans­ver­sal com­pe­ten­ces visible and reco­g­nis­ed, the second day focused on the field trials conducted in the partner countries. In four parallel workshops, par­ti­ci­pan­ts also had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to reflect together on possible future scenarios on this topic.
From 3s as Research Partner in the project, Monika Auzinger, Mariya Dzhengozova, Julia Fellinger and Karin Luomi-Messerer had con­tri­bu­ted to the results. At the con­fe­rence, Karin led the workshop “Towards inte­gra­ted national skills stra­te­gies” (see large photo).
