Existing arrangements

Young people participating in youth work activities in Sweden cannot obtain recognition or validitation of the skills and competences acquired. Participation in youth work activities does not give credit points or other accreditation towards a qualification within the system of formal education.



In Sweden, there are no top-level national policies and/or recognition mechanisms for identifing specific skills and competences that can be acquired through youth work.
