EUCIS-LLL new task force on validation of non-formal and informal learning

EUCIS-LLL held the first meeting of its new task force on the Validation of non-formal and informal learning on 11 July at SOLIDAR. EUCIS-LLL has been advocating for validation as a key tool for lifelong learning for many years. The task force will look at the implementation of the 2012 Council Recommendation, as well as the current revision of the 2009 European Guidelines and the 2010 European Inventory. Participants exchanged views with a European Commission representative that gave an update on the policy background. They debated on their vision of validation and recognition of learning outcomes, more particularly acquired in non-formal and informal settings. During their next meeting, platform experts and practitioners will discuss and adopt the task force action plan.
