European survey on innovative initiatives for the validation of transversal skills

The EU-funded project TRANSVAL-EU is a European policy experimentation concerning innovative approaches for the validation of transversal skills obtained in non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL) contexts, including guidance services.

The project partners will develop and test an offer of a validation toolkit, training curricula and programmes, as well as standardised competence profiles for validation and guidance practitioners with a specific focus on transversal skills.

In order to provide these insights related to potential innovative tools, methods and approaches for the validation of transversal skills and competences in validation and guidance practices in Europe the project consortium would like to map and analyse related initiatives on the validation and guidance process integrating transversal skills throughout Europe.

The survey is addressed to experts, practitioners, policy-makers, civil servants, workers in companies, project managers involved in the field of guidance and/or validation of skills (including recognition of prior learning) in all sectors of education (adult education, higher education, VET, non-formal education, schools, etc.) and work stakeholders (public employment services, companies, trade unions, civil society organisations etc.).

We would be very grateful if you could contribute to this by filling out this questionnaire.

It only takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete it.

Deadline to fill the survey: 30 September 2021.

Your answers will only be used anonymously for this survey and with respect for your privacy.

At the end of the survey (Autumn 2021), we will certainly inform you of its results (if you provide your email address at the end of the survey).
