Competence development in working life
This report is prepared by the Nordic Network for Adult Learning (NVL). NVL develops knowledge for decision makers and practitioners and promotes lifelong learning co-operation in the Nordic countries. NVL was established in 2005 by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
The NVL network “Competence in and for working life” consists of representatives of the social partners (employee- and employer organisations) in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.The network has functioned as a platform for the exchange of experiences and knowledge, with different perspectives on the theme development of qualifications for employees.
The ambition has been to highlight the different dimensions, which either weaken or strengthen the opportunities for learning in working life, and show examples of this. The results of this work during the years 2018–2020 is presented in this final report. The network presents its collected recommendations, which point out some prerequisites, considered by the members as important for the development of competence in working life.
