The European Commission is organising a stakeholder conference on 14-15 June in Brussels to share practices and exchange ideas and knowledge on validation of informal and non-formal learning.
The event will:
- provide an open space for discussion and exchange of recent initiatives and projects
- support the aims of the Skills Agenda for Europe
- prepare the ground for future European cooperation in the field of validation
The first day will feature a marketplace with stands where organisations will have the opportunity to present their initiatives and practices on validation of informal and non-formal learning. Workshop discussions will explore policies and practices.
The second day will open a policy debate on validation in the bigger picture of European policies for employment, education and training, and in particular the Skills Agenda for Europe.
