Abstract [en]

The recognition of prior learning (RPL) - often in terms of validation /of/ real competence - is a phenomenon that has been paid much attention to in adult and lifelong learning policies in the Nordic countries. This paper presents an overview and comparison of RPL policies in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, covering the educational sector, the labour market sector and the -third- sector. The comparison comprises aspects like the focus on convergent/controlling vs. divergent/exploring approaches, the summative and formative functions, the focus on different sectors and target groups, and the relation between the educational system and the work life. This paper has also been presented at "Meaning, Relevance & Variation. The Second Nordic Conference on Adult Learning", Linköping, Sweden, 2007
