Competence: A challenging asset

Abstract [en]

In this paper I like to discuss the method and concept of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), which in Sweden has been named validering, (validation). This has now become a well established concept and model for especially authorities to discuss and in practice visualise and assess the knowledge and competence among unemployed citizens, with the aim to enhance the chances for employment. In short, RPL is both a way to visualise but also to assess and formulate former knowledge and competence that a person has gained, most often at their time at a workplace. Many times this experience is not explicitly formulated, nor documented, which in a situation of organisational downsizing or other types of changes can mean that a person has problems in clearly making the knowledge and skill knowledgeable to a future employer. It is in this challenging situation for the individual that RPL can be of great importance. In focus in this paper is with the results made from an EU funded work as ground discuss the possibilities and difficulties in making RPL a well used tool in Swedish working life.
