Aims of NFIL?:
The main objective of the NFIL project is to contribute to the recognition of skills and the transparency of qualifications to facilitate learning, employability and labour mobility of migrants.
It targets national actors responsible for the recognition of professional qualifications, the evaluation and certification of curricula, employment services and stakeholders in education, training and civil society. All of them have a crucial role to play in promoting initiatives to validate non-formal and informal learning.
Who is NFIL for?
This project is intended to help:
- Immigrants in the EU
- Migrants inside of the borders of EU (from one EU country to another)
- Migrants who want to return to their home country – both short term and for longer periods of time.
The development of the following Intellectual Products is envisaged:
Research-analysis with the following elements:
– a common framework for non-formal and informal learning in Europe
– non-formal and informal learning in the countries represented in the project
– a comparable overview of the state of play of the validation mechanisms in each partner country
– SWOT analysis based on the implementation of the Recommendation of the European Council of 2012 and the European guidelines for the validation of non-formal and informal learning of CEDEFOP
– conclusions and recommendations according to the European validation list and data from studies at national level
2. Transnational framework for validated and certified skills (from 02/01/2019 to 31/05/2019)
The purpose of the framework is to test a synthetic method for evaluating:
– professional skills and profiles that can be certified in the countries participating in the project;
– documentation useful for validation actions in each country;
– processes and / or services that each country can offer in the process of validation of non-formal and informal learning outcomes.
3. 5 professional profiles in 4 sectors of the economy will be analyzed: trade, catering and hospitality, ICT and social services. As a result, a common framework will be developed for 20 professions, in which the institutions responsible for validation will be able to take into account skills acquired and certified not only in the country where the migrant resides but also in other countries where he/she has the right to work.
4. Defining and systematizing the ways of including and directing migrants in the integration process through:
– information on transnational recognition of non-formal and informal learning outcomes
– accompanying the migrant by an operator to explain to him the possibilities and limitations for validation and certification
– validation and certification of non-formal and informal learning according to the legislation of the individual member states
All partners were supposed to disseminate results and involve stakeholders in their national network to participate in the project.
The creation of intellectual products is the result of this open info-base and by sharing the experience and practice of seven of the 28 EU member states added value to the whole EU.
