EATI partnership developed a methodology to support the recognition, validation and certification of competences acquired informally or through adult personal and professional experience. The methodology is largely focused on learning developed in different European countries, in informal learning contexts. In the context of adult education, it contributes to the development and implementation of appealing and motivating mechanisms that allow the recognition, validation and certification of competences acquired throughout life. It is a comprehensive and transversal methodology for all entities working with adults, both nationally and internationally, towards universal certification.
EATI project realized a methodology manual “Balance of Key Competences for Universal School Certification” composed of a guide for professionals who deal
with adult education. The manual offers specific tools for the recognition of adult competences and it is a common basis of work for entities working on this field.
The manual “Balance of Key Competences for Universal School Certification” has been tested with a group of adults through a pilot study, to verify its overall efficiency and effectiveness.
