Project Description

Visible Skills of Adults (VISKA) is an Erasmus+ Key Action 3 Project, filed under the call priority theme of “Employment and Skills: validation of informal and non-formal learning in Education and Training.”

With this project, the seven partners in four countries want to address the European policy priority of diminishing skills mismatch by making knowledge, skills and competences of adults more visible through validation of informal and non-formal learning. In particular, VISKA addresses the need to make the skills of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees more visible, in order to shorten their time to employment, targeted education and training offers and active engagement in society. Along with unemployed and low-skilled adults in general, these target groups are currently at a disadvantage in European societies and could greatly benefit from improved access to validation services and from more holistic validation arrangements.
