EffectVPL – Effectiveness of Validation of Prior Non-formal and Informal Learning

EffectVPL – Effectiveness of Validation of Prior Non-formal and Informal Learning

Duration: 01.09.2016 – 31.08.2019

The Erasmus+ project Effectiveness of VPL Policies and Programmes for Labour Market Inclusion and Mobility – Individual and Employer Perspectives (EffectVPL) seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of validation programmes in terms of how the recognition of prior learning benefits the individual. The focus thereby will be placed on if and how validation procedures and programmes support individuals’ labour market inclusion, employability and further learning pathways. Through introducing biographical perspectives into the validation process and identifying the role of employers for validation and recognition of prior learning (VPL), the project seeks to enhance the effectiveness of VPL practice in Denmark, Germany, Poland and Turkey. In addition, the project will review the advancement of VPL policies and programmes over the project period. The results of the review, empirical investigations and several company case studies will be channelled into the on-going VPL policy dialogue and also be reflected in a jointly developed training module to support VPL practitioners. As a Strategic Partnership for Adult Education, the project enhances the exchange as well as the cooperation between the eight partner organisations participating in the project that combine practical expertise and theoretical background knowledge. Based on a common learning process, the project contributes to enhancing the transparency and recognition of skills and qualifications and facilitating labour market inclusion through access to training and recognition of competences for all. The project is coordinated by the Center for Labour and Political Education, University of Bremen.
