2016 update to the European inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning
Validation practices in Estonia are well developed in the formal education sector. Higher education (HE) has been leading developments in relation to validation, though other sectors - such as the vocational education and training (VET) sector - have been following these developments. Thus the challenge in Estonia is for other sectors to follow suit in terms of their developments in validation and to create a unified system. The current model is fragmented and for potential applicants it could be difficult to find his/her way around the various systems that are sector specific.
