Spotlight on VPL Biennale workshop - organisational arrangements

Come to Berlin and listen to how organisations have built bridges between different stakeholders for VPL at the Biennale 2019! Two case studies are introduced below.

The Finnish SIVIS Study Centre is a national liberal adult education organisation focussed on capacity building among NGOs. As part of their work, they have developed a learning outcome-based certification format for SIVIS training programmes. The team has also developed an e-learning course on VPL, the focus of which is to train professionals working in formal education to recognize and validate skills and competences gained in non-formal contexts.

As part of the Norwegian National Skills Policy Strategy, specialists have developed “A Balancing Act” model. The aim of this model is to create and depict a structured way of how to describe skills so that both the world of work and the world of formal education have a similar understanding of the outcomes. The model aims to facilitate defining skill standards in the workplace in the same way as standards are defined in the formal education system.


Policy Specialist Anni Karttunen gives an overview of her workshop track “organisational arrangements”.
