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). As this is an ongoing reform, for more information please see section 6.10.

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

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.
