Initiatives in recognition of prior professional learning among immigrants have been taken in Sweden during the last years. The government started different projects aiming at finding methods for recognising aperson-s prior learning in the field of professional competence. This paper presents a study of how these projects were organised and what the starting points of them were. We also lookupon some problems arising when you try to recognise priorlearning. We found that the level of language knowledge in Swedishis essential in this process and that most of the projects had problems leaving the classical school tradition where the maindocumentation of competence is grades.
