Validation and recognition of learning• Council recommendation adopted in September 2012– Establishes a national system by 2015 leading to full orpartial qualifications– Defines elements to be included and principles to berespected– Ensures the involvement of LM stakeholders– Promotes coordination between education, training,employment and youth services and policies
