Valorize NFIL Across Europe is an Erasmus plus KA2 Adult started in 2018.


Council Recommendation of 20th December 2012 on the validation of non-formal and informal learning (NFIL) started an European common process the involved quite all UE countries.

Many researches put in evidence that this process shows 2 problems:

Ernesto VILLALBA GARCIA's picture

Everyone learns outside formal institutions, but the needs to validate non-formal and informal learning might be different for a migrant wanting to start working, a person that dropped out of school that wants to resume education or an employee that wants to improve its career prospects. Do we need different systems for each of those users? Can we just have one system that meets all their needs? 

Simon BROEK's picture

Do we actually learn more by formalising learning? There is a tendency to formalise learning. The most prominent development is the establishment of Qualifications Frameworks and Accreditation of Prior Learning systems. Both initiatives are based on the assumption that learning can be described in terms of learning outcomes.

Thinking in terms of learning outcomes is not a bad thing. As a proxy, it clarifies what people learn; it focuses the development of learning programmes; it allows recognition of prior learning against agreed standards.
