The purpose of the EQF is to increase transparency, transference and recognition of qualifications between the European countries and thus mobility of the European workers and learners. The implicit and fundamental aim is to enhance a shift of paradigm, from the traditional approach focusing on input and detailed statements of the curriculum of the educational system to a learning outcome based approach opening for new ways of thinking about learning. The status of non-formal adult education is not addressed explicitly in the EQF, but as the approach is based on learning outcomes and one of the purposes is to enhance recognition of prior learning it is relevant to assume a relation.
EAEA and NVL invite to discuss these issues with the colleagues from all over Europe!
Invitation, background document and programme can be found on NVL:s Calender Page.
