Abstract [en]

Validation (recognition of prior learning) means an idea of -making learning visible- - of valuing knowledge irrespective of how, when and where it is learnt. This is a phenomenographic analysis of how a group of caretakers from a Swedish property managing company experience participation in a validation initiative focusing on their vocational competence. The results show how validation is experienced as an opportunity for personal development, a matter of assessment and control, or -only scratching the surface-. The process is also experienced in different ways in terms of learning - with a focus on prior learning or new learning, or even no learning. Other benefits of validation are described in terms of exchange value or personal development. The results are integrated in a model where the relation between the individual and the validation process is a developmental, a credit-exchange or a critical relation.
