TRANSVAL-EU: THE PROJECT

Transversal skills are an implicit part of the existing validation and guidance processes: The aim of TRANSVAL-EU is to experiment on how to make those skills more explicit and to embed the lessons learned in validation and guidance provisions. TRANSVAL-EU proposes innovative approaches for the validation of transversal skills acquired through non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL), which will be tested in five pilot countries – Austria, Belgium, Italy, Lithuania and Poland.

TRANSVAL-EU aims to increase the knowledge and awareness of validation assessors, counsellors and career guidance practitioners on transversal competences through capacity building. The project strengthens cross-sector cooperation between practitioners, policy-makers and other stakeholders in order to build coherent VNFIL systems.

The Partner Perspective – Lithuania

Lithuania is one of the seven countries participating in the consortium that implements the TRANSVAL-EU project, the validation of transversal skills across Europe. Here is Lithuania's national perspective on validation.

On the Intersection of Guidance and Validation

The discourse on validation has been ongoing since the first set of Guidelines for validation of non-formal and informal learning by the European Commission and the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) was issued in 2009.
