The 3rd VPL Biennale focusses on "Making policy work - Validation of Prior Learning for education and the labour market"
The VPL Biennale is about sharing knowledge, ideas and visions on VPL and about the creative process of learning from each other’s successes, problems and solutions in ‘the VPL-world’.
Join us in drafting and adopting the Berlin Declaration on Validation of Prior Learning, which paves the road for a stronger and more sustainable implementation of VPL!
Good practice and good policy presentations and discussions in 24 Workshops across six policy tracks:1. Organisational arrangements2. Financing3. Procedures and instruments4. Support structures5. Post-validation pathways6. Legal foundations
Why the VPL Biennale?
All across the globe, countries face big challenges in their working and learning systems, both qualitatively (the need for lifelong learning and the updating/upskilling of people, reducing poverty and illiteracy) as well as quantitatively (demographic challenges, drop-outs, (im)migration, retention).
Much research has been done (and is going on) on the added value of the learning outcomes approach in National Qualification Frameworks (NQFs), the effectiveness of Human Resources Management-systems (HRM) and the methods for Validation of Prior Learning (VPL).
