CEDEFOP new briefing note: validation at the heart of VET modernisation
“At the interface of learning for employability” is the latest note released by CEDEFOP and tackling latest and upcoming CEDEFOP work on the modernisation of VET systems (i.e. a VET policy monitoring report is notably announced for this year), careers and transitions as well as skills and competences. To make VET systems more attractive, inclusive, accessible and flexible, validation of non-formal and informal learning outcomes is mentioned as an alternative route to qualifications and the CEDEFOP will soon release the latest version of the European Inventory on Validation of non-formal and informal learning in Europe. In 2014, CEDEFOP will also keep on monitoring the development of National Qualifications Frameworks in 36 countries (linked to the European Qualifications Framework) and developing the European Skills, Qualifications and Occupations Portal (members only: see also EUCIS-LLL infonote on ESCO).
