If you say ‘yes’ to Lifelong Learning you have to say ‘yes’ to validation of competences. It is very important to make informal learning worthwhile.

The integration of migrants is one of the biggest challenges facing Europe today. The VINCE project can help university staff dealing with migrants to better understand their needs and contribute to their integration in our societies.

Learning processes take place everywhere – not only at school or university. Validating these learning outcomes is getting more and more important. Also technology supported learning environment will change accordingly in the future – to support the validation of non-formal and informal learning.

Validation gives people the chance to understand the full range of their skills and competences. Tacit knowledge is getting explicit and validation candidates can live up to their full potential. This is empowerment.

EUCEN has always fought for the development and implementation of validation of prior learning. VINCE is a step forward towards making validation accessible also to newcomers and refugees!
