2 Project Information Title: Project Number: Validation of skills and knowledge for strengthening the positions of low-qualified employees in the labour market BG1-LEO Year: 2010 Project Type: Status: Marketing Text: Summary: Transfer of Innovation completed BG-Bulgaria The main assumption underlying the development of this project is the notion that the workplace is a learning environment. The project aims at developing methods and tools for identifying and validating competences in the workplace and opening gateways to education and training to make it easier for lowqualified individuals to develop their competences, and by that secure their position on the labour market. For the individual, recognition of nonformal & informal competences can be a strong motivational factor towards an active participation in lifelong learning. Through the identification of competences, the company may find it easier to develop more appropriate educational plans. This project will be examining methods of validation in workplaces based on occupationalstandards. The target group is lowqualified employees, who have not completed upper secondary education. Seven countries will develop a Validation kit in a given sector in cooperation with different companies. The main assumption underlying the development of this project is the notion that the workplace is a learning environment. In the fast changing working world it is important to find ways to identify useful competences that can be built upon both in work and further education and training. It is important that the competences which an individual develops outside the formal school system are transparent, documented and recognized. This project aims at developing methods and tools for identifying and validating competences in the workplace and opening gateways to education and training to make it easier for lowqualified individuals to develop their competences, and by that secure their position on the labour market. For the individual, an accreditation/recognition of nonformal/informal competences can be a strong motivational factor towards an active participation in lifelonglearning. Through the identification of competences, the company may find it easier to develop more appropriate educational plans. So far, many countries have focused on validation based on curriculum in the formal school system. This project will be examining methods of validation in workplaces based on occupationalstandards. The target group is lowqualified employees, who have not completed upper secondary education. Seven countries will develop a Validation kit in a given sector in cooperation with companies. Methods and tools of confirmation and validation of competences will be developed. Transferability of the methods and tools into other companies/sectors will be tested. The Common European principles for validation of nonformal and informal learning as in a final draft proposal from February 2004, the European Inventory on Validation and the European Qualification Framework will be used as a guide and reference point for the development and implementation of methods and systems for validation in the project. Description: The project aim was to develop methods and tools which can assists in the process of validating competencies in the workplace as well as to identify competence achieve during the daily work. Its main goal was the developed under the project standards, methods and instruments to improve the link between VET and labour market through involvement all key players together. In this way the low-qualified employees, the employers, the counsellors and trade unions will recognise similar competencies achieved at the working place or trough informal education. The project main aims were: - to make the competencies more visible for the individual low-qualified people and they to become a tool for better placement of the labour market; - to make the competencies more recognizable for the employers and to facilitate 2

3 Project Information their efforts in the process of appointment, training and qualifying new and current employees; - to transform the competencies in a fast and very efficient instrument for the counsellors in the career guidances; - to simplify the process of validation between the systems from the vocational and education schools and modern labour market; - to make more strong impact over policy makers in order to introduces the validation as a official process. The ValidAid outcomes were accepted by the banks and big retail shops very well. Now several financial institutions and commercial chains are considering the opportunities to start using the ValidAid philosophy immediately in their Human Recourses Departments. The successful implementation of the project identify a trace path for enlarging and enrichment the sectors for validation of competencies including office secretary and manager, tax and custom expert, financial and insurance expert, construction worker, etc. ValidAid was presented at several conferences and events, which took place in all partner countries. This brought a wide interest from many VET institutions and organizations. As a result there were three requests up to now for further development of the ValidAid idea and products from Italy, Hungary and Poland.
