Briefing paper on transversal skills
This briefing paper aims at describing a common understanding within the VISKA project partnership regarding the definition of transversal skills and to develop a means for identifying and assessing these transversal skills in a validation process for low-qualified adults and migrants. This paper is a basis for further development of assessment criteria that will be used during the field trials in some partner countries. Read more.
Literature review and needs analysis
In may 2018, the research partner of the VISKA project finished an overview of the current discourse surrounding the Validation of Prior Learning (VPL) at a European level, as a basis for the project interventions. Through this exercise, project partners have considered and reflected on the principles underpinning validation in their countries. The legislative landscapes and relevant literature in their own country and across Europe have been considered and interviews have been conducted. This document reveals a preliminary insight into the policy impacts of the planned work under the VISKA project.  Read more

Training module for professionals in the VISKA project

Guidance counsellors and other professional frontline staff are in need of updating their competences in order to better meet the needs of very diverse target audiences for VPL, including migrants, refugees and asylum seekers and improve service outcomes. Competences needed for guidance counsellors and other frontline staff involved in VPL will be defined through a thorough needs analysis.  VISKA partners will develop training modules for these professionals and where needed specific training sessions will be held.
