EUCIS-LLL sets up a task force on validation of non-formal and informal learning

The European Civil Society Platform on Lifelong Learning - EUCIS-LLL - has been advocating for validation as a key tool for lifelong learning for years and has now set up a task force to further tackle the issue. EAEA is a member of EUCIS-LLL.

The task force will look at the implementation of the 2012 Council Recommendation on the validation of non-formal and informal learning, as well as the current revision of Cedefop 2009 European Guidelines for validating non-formal and informal learning and 2010 European Inventory on validation.

EUCIS-LLL held the first meeting of the task force on 11 July 2013. 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.
