Marketing Text The article presents the results of a positive cross-fertilisation between the developments of the Recognition of Prior Learning [RPL] for Non-formal Learning RPLO described as the Route 2 to Certification. The reliability and validity of assessment strategies targeted to VET teachers and trainers are considered. The results of Swiss research and pilot initiatives are analysed, in the context of the professionalisation of specialists involved in recognition and validation of non-formal and informal learning.
Description The policy framework is provided by the European Guidelines for Validating non formal and informal learning (CEDEFOP 2009) and its UK equivalent Claiming credit: Guidance on the Recognition of Prior Learning within the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCDA 2010). The article concludes that the professionalisation of RVPL specialists is a pre-condition for making assessment strategy, methods and tools characterising Route 2 reliable, effective for innovating learning patterns and equivalent to those used in Route 1 for assessing learning outcomes within formal learning systems.
