Recognition, Validation and Accreditation of Non-formal and Informal Learning
The importance of this kind of informal or non-formal education has been proven, due to its complementary function regarding formal education, allows the development and therefore better employability of the individuals and workers and, on the other hand, leads to a poverty reduction and facilitates the social inclusion.
Nevertheless, each State has its own approach to the topic, the way the non-formal and informal learning can be recognised, validated and accredited, and this can be seen though the paper.
The paper is specifically about the legislation and policies valuing non-formal and informal learning as an integral part of the education and training system, the legislation and public policies endorsing the recognition of outcomes of non-formal and informal learning, and the strategies and practices in supporting the provision of non-formal and informal learning opportunities and the recognition of learning results.
