Unlocking talents in Europe

85% of learning during our lifetime takes place outside formal learning – but the results are not always visible. Validation gives visibility and value to all learning, including at work, at home or volunteering.

Participants in the Festival visited a marketplace of 40 stands where organisations from all around Europe presented their initiatives and practices on validation of non-formal and informal learning.

Interactive workshops explored different policies and practices on validation, including:

  • Validation in Upskilling Pathways
  • The Youthpass experience
  • Developing validation in the workplace in cooperation with employers
  • (Self-) assessing vocational skills
  • Validation and Blockchain
  • Qualification frameworks and validation
  • Supporting the employability of migrants and refugees
  • Encouraging solidarity activities and the validation of learning outcomes
  • Funding models for validation
  • Making transversal skills visible
  • E-portfolios and Open Badges
  • Supporting the learner: connecting validation and guidance

The second day of the conference will be opened by Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Labour Mobility.

  • The spotlight speeches by David Rivoire, President of VAE les 2 Rives and Laure Joachim, Head of Group's 'Associate Employability' Unit at Adecco Group.
  • Two panel discussions exploring:
    • The learner at the centre: validation stories,
    • Multi-stakeholder commitment: a condition for success for validation.
