Validation in the care and youth work sectors

Thematic report for the 2016 update of the European inventory on validation

This thematic report provides insights into how validation arrangements are linked to the labour market.

Based mainly on data collected for the European inventory, the report explores the rationale for validation and considers the use, awareness and types of validation opportunities and the role of employers/organisations in supporting validation in two sectors. The report compares approaches in the care and youth work sectors, reflecting the different purposes of validation and the extent of its labour market connection, currently stronger in the care sector compared to the youth sector. Evidence from both sectors highlights the way different stages of validation are used and applied to different user groups, indicating potential for wider application of validation practices for different target groups and purposes.
