UNESCO-research on ‘Recognition Practices’

Linking Recognition Practices and National Qualifications Framework

Qualification systems across the globe are generally well equipped to deal with learning acquired in institutional settings. However, one of the greatest challenges is how to recognise learning that occurs outside the formal education sector.

UIL’s new book, Linking Recognition Practices and National Qualifications Frameworks, edited by Madhu Singh and Ruud Duvekot, tackles this challenge. The recognition, validation and accreditation (RVA) of learning in formal, non-formal, and informal settings is examined within a variety of national and regional contexts.

It contains 23 country specific reports on the linkages between national qualifications frameworks (NQFs) and the practices of RVA from all five UNESCO regions.
