Erasmus+ KA3




The project “Validation of transversal skills across Europe” (TRANSVAL-EU) aims to experiment on how to make those skills more explicit and to embed the lessons learned in validation and guidance provisions. TRANSVAL-EU proposes innovative approaches for the validation of transversal skills acquired through non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL), which will be tested in five pilot countries – Austria, Belgium, Italy, Lithuania and Poland.

Project summary

TRANSVAL-EU aims to increase the knowledge and awareness of validation assessors, counsellors and career guidance practitioners on transversal competences through capacity building. The project strengthens cross-sector cooperation between practitioners, policy-makers and other stakeholders in order to build coherent VNFIL systems.

TRANSVAL-EU aims to:

  • improve the knowledge and know-how on the validation of transversal competences
  • train validation/guidance practitioners
  • develop new tools for validation and guidance professionals and test them
  • monitor and evaluate the experimentation’s outcomes and impact both on practitioners and on the adults, who will have their skills validated.

The project partners will develop and test:

  • a research base of good practices
  • a set of training toolkits and programmes
  • standardised competence profiles for validation/guidance practitioners with a specific focus on transversal skills
