Extract from Bulgaria 2010 Annual National Report:
In the school years 2006-2008 a group of 20 young adults from the Roma minority have been involved in a semi
face-to-face training within a class form for achieving the learning results of the 9-12.grades (the 4 final grades
of the Bulgarian school system).
Training was provided to them by teachers from the neighbouring formal school. Within 2 years the group
successfully covered the learning “standards” for 4 years secondary school education and completed
education. The example generally goes to the field of adult education, but as far as by completing the
secondary school educational level, not only new knowledge and skills have been evaluated, but also previous
formal, informal and non-formal learning experience has been assessed, this information might be relevant
also to the field of validation.
