The European Commission just published two important policy initiatives promoting lifelong learning - the two proposals for Council Recommendations, one on individual learning accounts and another one on micro-credentials.
TRANSVAL-EU project partner, the Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP) was invited as speaker and participant to the EC Validation event, presenting on tools and methods for the validation of transversal skills.
Among national and regional initiatives on informal learning, the use of innovative tools such as digital badges represent a promising option to setting up an effective system of validation and a transferable model.
In the Italian system, transversal competences are not yet fully integrated in the process of validation of non-formal and informal learning, although they are mentioned in the descriptors within the National Qualification Framework.
Do you know the EQF Advisory Group? In this new blog post, the Lifelong Learning Platform (a partner in TRANSVAL-EU) explains the role of the EQF Advisory Group, where national ministries and key EU stakeholders meet regularly to discuss national developments of their qualification and validation systems.
