The European Centre Valuation Prior Learning (EC-VPL) studies, accumulates and distributes information on every imaginable aspect of Lifelong Learning-Strategies in which the systematics of Valuation/Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) plays a structuring role.

The mission of the centre is to prioritise the systematics of VPL in its functionalities for the society and its stakeholders. VPL is a systematic that, independent of the type of learning programme, focuses on recognising, valuing, validating and developing the competences that someone has previously learned in any type of learning environment. Personalised learning is the dynamic learning concept focused on the individual learner, which can initiate (or help initiate) and establish tailored individual learning programmes in a learning culture based on self-driven, flexible, forward-looking lifelong learning.
