Arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal learning

There are no laws in place in Iceland which conditions that non-formal or informal learning need to be validated for education. Furthermore, the National Curriculum guide for both primary and lower secondary schools as well as for upper secondary schools, stipulates no such thing. However, upper secondary schools are, individually, free to form their own policies on whether and how they validate non-formal and informal learning.

 

Information and guidance

No information or guidance is provided by the top-level authority.

 

Quality assurance

No quality assurance mechanism is in place for the validation of non-formal or informal learning.
