The VIP Training Course

The VIP training course was carried out in Alden Biesen, BE from October 10th to 14th with a group of 20 European experts.

It was titled:

Validation of learning outcomes in European collaboration and mobility with LEVEL5

The course was aiming to train professionals from different educational institutions and sectors to validate learning outcomes in the framework of (rather informal or non-formal) international learning activities.
The LEVEL5 approach is especially suitable to assess and evidence the major learning outcomes of these transnational collaborative and mobility activities which are developments of learners’ personal and social competences.
The course will deliver, necessary theoretical inputs on the validation of informal and non-formal learning and practical collaborative learning units on how to evaluate competences in different cases and stages in lifelong learning pathways, acquired in collaborative and mobility learning.
The course qualified the participants to apply the LEVEL5 system and to become members of the European REVEAL  network.
