Nordic Quality Compass on Validation of Prior Learning

The Nordic Quality Compass is a toolbox for assessing validation practices, policies, procedures as well as competences of validation practitioners.  

This set of tools is for policy makers and developers of validation procedures as well as for practitioners (assessors, counselors and coordinators), who are working with validation of prior learning. All the tools allow you to create and print a development plan as you go. Before you can start using the tools, you must create your personal account (Log in, Create new account). You will be able to edit or print your answers at any stage.
