State of play (excerpt from the last annual National Report on validtion of Non-formal and informal learning)
First I have to stress that in the formal education and training fields there are only 2 Ministries that have responsibility: Ministry of education and vocational training and Ministry of higher education). No other Ministry has force in the field of education and training. The Ministry for family and youth has developed some validation procedures in the youth sector. This validation is in line with the developments of the below mentioned bill and can therefore, if there is a need be linked to this system.
At this moment we have the following formal situations: The bill concerning the reform of the vocational training foresees the validation of formal, non-formal and informal learning outcomes for all certifications of the secondary technical system, the upper secondary technical system, and the diploma of master in crafts. The remaining general secondary system is the only of the formal education and training system that is not included.
On the other side is the law of the 12 August 2003 concerning the creation of the Â«Â UniversitĂ© du LuxembourgÂ Â». This law says that the validation of professional experience can lead to a part or full certification.
