Building a common ground
Validation of prior learning for integrated approaches in lifelong learning
What is validation about?
VPL gives visibility and value to all forms of learning and seeks to uncover and unlock latent talent in the workforce and in society. The biennale is for policy makers, researchers, users, practitioners, and other stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of Validation of Prior Learning.
It is a conference about sharing knowledge, ideas and visions of VPL, learning from each other’s experiences and creating viable solutions in the ‘VPL world’.
