Link between CPIA and initial VET providers with second level courses

Validation of non-formal and informal learning

Brief description of the main purposes and contents

The credit recognition process allows the personalization of the path for adults who re-enter the education system: it allows the enhancement of the skills acquired in any case and makes it possible to make the paths sustainable.

Reasons why the project / program is considered a “good practice”

The connection through modular planning favors the continuation of adult studies: the general education area and the specific area are managed in synergy between CPIA and initial VET providers; the connection favors the enhancement of the skills of each student and the personalization of the path; the student’s record book collects the scholastic experience and accompanies “vertically” the students who after the CPIA continue at the initial VET providers with second level courses.
