European Validation Festival: Unlocking Talents in Europe

European Validation Festival: Unlocking Talents in Europe

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 and
  • 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.

If you are interested in proposing a marketplace stand for the festival, please make a request though the online questionnaire.

You can tweet or follow the discussions online using the hashtag #EUSkillsValidation.
