UNESCO Guidelines for Recognition

Alongside established systems for recognising formal learning, some Member States have developed mechanisms to recognise and validate non-formal and informal learning, and many more are in the process of doing so. The UNESCO Guidelines for the Recognition, Validation and Accreditation of the Outcomes of Non-formal and Informal Learning were developed and published by UIL in 2012 following a consultation process involving Member States. This report synthesizes and analyses the responses received from 42 Member States during that consultation process.
