Whoever we are, wherever we live across Europe, we are presented with opportunities to learn every day of our life. Beyond the classroom, we can acquire valuable knowledge, skills and competences -, through training courses, online learning, and in our daily lives whether at work, at home or during leisure time. The results of this learning, unfortunately, are often ignored and undervalued.
Validation of non-formal and informal learning is about making visible and giving value to this diverse and often unique learning. One major purpose of validation is to make it possible for individuals to take advantage of the outcomes of their learning experiences and use them to gain access to employment and/or education opportunities.
