Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning

The recognition of prior learning and skills is based on the following principles:

a person has the right to social recognition of his acquired skills and competences when he provides proof that he possesses them;
a person does not have to relearn what they already know or to redo, in a formal school context, the learning they have already achieved in other places, in other ways;

what matters in the recognition of prior learning and skills is what a person has learned and not the places, circumstances or methods of learning.
The recognition of prior learning and skills (RAC) in vocational and technical training is an approach that allows for the formal assessment and recognition of skills acquired through life and work experiences based on a program of study.

At the end of the process, you will receive an official document (newsletter, diploma, etc.) attesting to the skills you have mastered, as if you had taken the training in one of our establishments.

If some skills are to be acquired in whole or in part to achieve your goal, you will be offered different ways for adults to do this (for example, learning guides, part-time training at a school, or in the part of a fellowship or an in-house training).
