After Rotterdam (2015) and Aarhus (2017), the 3rd Biennale on the Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) will take place in Berlin, Germany, on May 7 and 8, 2019. Early bird registration for 195 € is open now until 31st of December 2018.
The VPL Biennale aims at strengthening the platform for policy makers, practitioners, users, researchers and other stakeholders who are involved in further developing/implementing Validation of Prior Learning. The 3rd VPL Biennale with the motto „Making policy work – Validation of Prior Learning for education and the labour market“ is about sharing knowledge, ideas and visions on VPL and about the creative process of learning from each other’s successes, problems and solutions in ‘the VPL-world’.
Together with policy makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders involved in further developing and implementing the Validation of Prior Learning, we will draft and adopt the Berlin Declaration on Validation, setting the benchmark for validation systems worldwide. Invited presentations in four workshops for each of six policy tracks will lay the foundation for this declaration:
1. Organisational arrangements
3. Procedures and instruments
4. Support structures
5. Post-validation pathways
6. Legal foundations
Join us in drafting and adopting the Berlin Declaration on VPL, which paves the road for a stronger and more sustainable implementation of VPL!
