Systemic Aspects of the Recognition of Non-Formal and Informal Learning


  • Dejan Hozjan

    (University of Primorska, Slovenia)


The monograph presents an overview of the system regulating the recognition of non-formal and informal learning in the European Union. Non-formal and informal learning are an important factor in the further development of such a qualification and of the educational system in the European Union. This is demonstrated by current strategic documents, for example the Lisbon Strategy, Memorandum on lifelong learning, Resolution on lifelong learning, etc. This is also part of the Bologna and Copenhagen processes. The success of the development of non-formal and informal learning will be dependent on the level of development of the recognition of non-formal and informal learning. In an effort to establish a uniform system of development in this area, the ministers of education adopted common guidelines for the recognition of prior learning. Despite this desire for homogenized recognition of learning, there is in the European Union a range of different forms of recognition. Thus, the monograph will deal with the response of individual countries to homogenization. We were especially interested in analysing a normative basis for the recognition of prior learning and qualifications in the Slovenian educational system.
