  9. introduction_and_one-off_report_-_denmark.pdf

    introduction_and_one-off_report_-_denmark.pdf This introduction is based on the Danish European Inventory Report on Validation of Non- formal and Informal Learning and it was introduced to contextualise the report. Introduction to Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) in Denmark Since 2007, the legal framework (law no 556) has ensured individuals’ legal right to have their prior learning validated. This includes the possibilities of obtaining a full or a part qualification. The recommended VPL-arrangement basically includes the four phases, identification, documentation, assessment and recognition The results of a VPL are guaranteed in terms of the linkage to national qualifications frameworks – also in line with European Qualifications Framework. The assessed and recognised competences are based on transparent quality assurance measures. The VPL is carried out by the educational providers. The providers are responsible for QA and the assessment is based on common standards and criteria. The branch committees are responsible for setting the standards and criteria for recognition. Hence, the reliability and trust of VPL outcomes is high across sectors. There are no specific formal competence requirements for VPL professionals. The legal framework clearly specifies that informal and non-formal learning – acquired no matter where and how – must be included in the overall validation. The VPL providers (the educational institutions) are obliged to provide information and guidance to the individuals and organisations.
