Since 2007, the REVEAL group has organised a number of conferences. In these conferences the LEVEL5 approach to evaluate, assess and evidence the competence development of learners in non-formal and informal contexts has not only been presented but also applied in practical workshops.

The LEVEL5 approach has been developed to serve especially

  • Target groups that learn outside formal education contexts and
  • Their learning facilitators, be it adult learning providers, grass-root projects, care organisations and others.

The conferences have followed the methodology of “active conferencing” to give participants the opportunity not just to listen to presentations but to practice on real cases.

The very positive feedback of participants has shown that our conference concept works well and contributes to a practice oriented discussion of validation of non-formal and informal learning.
