Arrangements for the validation of non-formal and informal learning

Validation of non-formal and informal learning (VAE; Validation des acquis de l'expérience) allows citizens to obtain diplomas from 'general' secondary education or a master craftsman's diploma (brevet de maîtrise) through the recognition of their non-academic knowledge and experiences. (For further details on procedures, see: Eurydice article on validation of non-formal and informal learning) There are some more arrangements for the validation of non-formal learning (certification of engagement, 'Certificat', Youthpass, Europass) (for further details, see: 2.7 Skills recognition).

Information and guidance

Information and guidance are provided by the general youth information offers and services (Youth Information Centre, Youth centres, House of Guidance and its affiliated services) and also specific web pages (www.enfancejeunesse.lu/fr/validation-form-continue ; certificat.anelo.lu ; eportfolio.anelo.lu ; alj.lu).

Quality assurance

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