Validation of non-formal and informal learning – Lazio Region, Italy

Lazio Region puts in place in a stable way to allow those who have gained adequate experience of study, work and personal life, to acquire a professional qualification  through:
■individualized participation in training courses (the recognition of training credits lead to a reduction in duration or access to training paths);

■certification of skills acquired during the course of an active life (without the obligation to participate in a training activity)

The system is an implementation tool for promoting lifelong learning as a right of the person, in order to ensure equal opportunities for all to recognize and enhance the skills acquired, in accordance with the attitudes and individual choices and in a personal, civic, social and employment perspective.
