Starting Point
It is generally accepted that informal and non-formal learning must be recognised but if we actually want to implement this, we have to overcome many obstacles. To recognise informal and non-formal learning, we need accredited assessment procedures and assessment centres but it is currently unclear how these can be financed without being part of a project. Moreover, people acquire competencies through lifelong learning – competencies for which they do not have a certificate. Since the labour market becomes increasingly dynamic, many careers tend to become a sequence of working periods and orientation phases. The periods of orientation are very often connected with further trainings. This gives us the chance to certify the knowledge and the skills that have been acquired through informal and non-formal learning in a final certification process.
