Validation of informal and non-formal learning has been a priority for years. Validating competences is a valuable contribution to the self-assessment and further individual development of refugees and migrants. The identification and recognition of competencies acquired in different types of integration measures help refugees reflect on their competences in terms of integrating into the society and being an active citizen. It can help them become more active as they will understand what this can mean.
In addition, the individual support of the final beneficiaries provides valuable support for people who might not have any social networks.
Outcomes of the validation can also be used to make existing integration measures more suitable in order to promote the integration process in an optimal way.
