Research Conference: Transversal Skills for Work and Life – Strengthening Guidance and Validation.
Both in work settings and in daily life, there is a growing need for individuals to develop high-level competences to address complex challenges. Transversal competences set the foundation for personal development, resilience, the ability to communicate and work constructively with others, problem-solving, and the ability to manage one’s learning and career. Yet transversal competences are not always valued or made visible in guidance and validation processes for adult learners.
The ongoing TRANSVAL-EU project — one of the largest policy experimentations in Europe — has aimed to bridge this gap in guidance and assessment in validation of non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL).
