Arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal learning

There are no established procedures for validating competences acquired in non-formal and informal learning settings.

Young people can have the knowledge, skills and competences acquired through non-formal and informal learning. They cannot be officially validated and no qualification can be obtained on the basis of those learning experiences. The system of Youth Pass is used in Bulgaria but the national authorities do not offer a validation scheme on competences obtained by non-formal learning and qualifications cannot be legally obtained.

Information and guidance

There are no established procedures for validating competences acquired through non-formal and informal learning.

Quality assurance

There is no system of quality assurance of the arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal competences.
