Validation of non-formal and informal learning in Germany

Validation of non-formal and informal learning in Germany

09/08/2018
Since 2013, Germany has taken numerous steps to develop or improve rules for the validation of non-formal and informal learning in accordance with the Council Recommendation of 20 December 2012. This Report gives an overview of what has been achieved so far, and looks ahead to what is planned for the future. The focus is on measures for the validation of non-formally and informally acquired vocational skills which are implemented by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within its field of competence. In line with the target group definition in the Council Recommendation, however, this Report also includes tools for the identification of skills by employment agencies, for example.
