Erasmus+ project

Validation of acquired skills and experiences International

Project Description

VAE is a procedure for the recognition of prior learning that enables any French educational institution to give diplomas partially or completely based on work experience

Anyone involved in working life, whatever their age, profession, situation, can access the procedure, provided they have at least 1 year of work experience.

The heart of the projec is to disseminate a method for the implementation of VAE (validation of acquired experience) procedures aimed at obtaining a certification, a statement or a diploma through a procedure of recognition and validation of competences learned in the partner countries.

VAE is a “new chance”, a way of recognising the worker socially and professionally and facilitating free access to the internal and external labour market.

Employees with a fixed-term contract or an indefinite
permanent contract
