Arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal learning

There is no official validation system of youth work and non-formal learning in Cyprus, yet. Several of the objectives of the National Youth Strategy 2017-2022 (Εθνική στρατηγική για τη νεολαία 2017-2022) focus on youth work and non-formal and informal learning (NFL). 

In addition, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth is co-ordinating the establishment of a validation mechanism on non-formal and informal learning in Cyprus. As this is an ongoing reform, for more information please see section 6.10.

Information and guidance

Since there is no official validation system of youth work and non-formal learning in Cyprus, there are not any awareness-raising activities by top-level authorities to inform and guide on the topic.

Quality assurance

There is no existing system of quality assurance of the arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal competences in Cyprus. As this is part of an ongoing reform, for more information please see section 6.10.
