European Inventory on Validation: 2007/2008 Update
Each country chapter has been revised for 2007/2008, to reflect developments in policies and systems for validation of informal learning since 2005. The chapters have been updated using a variety of national and international sources, as well as interviews with relevant stakeholders. We hope that you find our new inventory a useful and informative reference!

Using the European Inventory
The European inventory contains a large amount of information on validation practices. Information has been structured so as to facilitate the search of information in it by its users. To this respect, information on validation practices is provided separately from information on examples of good practice, chapters have been organised by country and follow a common structure. This year, we have also included three sectoral compendia for the public, private and third sectors. These compendia discuss key trends, characteristics and methodological approaches within the three different sectors. They are intended for use by stakeholders in the field of validation (in particular practitioners), who will find the compendia have an eminently practical focus.
