Project Text

The aim of this research programme was to arrive at a better understanding on issues of policy and practice surrounding the recognition, validation and accreditation of non-formal and informal learning (RVA), and how they are linked to qualifications Frameworks in different national contexts. The programme seeks to advance a body of knowledge available in relation to national and international recognition practices and qualifications Frameworks and enable this learning to be effectively shared across Member States, by bringing the North and South closer together into research partnerships. In this way, the programme is designed to take stock of existing progress in the world and to highlight specific experiences and successes in countries that can be shared by other countries.

Partnership:

UNESCO/UIL, Foundation EC-VPL, national UNESCO working groups, ILO, Cedefop, SAQA, eand others.
