Informal and non-formal competences matching devise for migrants' employability and active citizenship

Project results

Final comparative report

The document, developed by MATCH consortium, contains a literature and initiatives/programmes descriptive and comparative review outlining the current issues, debates, good practices and state-of-the-art in the field of the recognition and validation of non-formal and informal learning in MATCH partners' countries (Italy, France, The Netherlands, Slovenia and Poland)

Country-based case-studies

The document contains MATCH country-based case-studies on existing models, procedures and practices regarding the assessment, validation and recognition of non-formal and informal learning possibly targeted at migrants

MATCH non-formal and informal learning recognition and validation methodology

MATCH methodology for the process of recognising and validating prior learning specifically focused on migrants has resulted from the comparison of the different national systems, experimentations and policies in the partners’ countries. It consists of a 4-step process providing information and guidance in writing the candidate’s MATCH profile as well as assessing his/her knowledge, skills and competences

MATCH Methodology's Tools

MATCH non-forma and informal learning recognition and validation methodology is completed by a set of annexes, transnated in the partners' languages, to be tested during the piloting phase

LO-MATCH Platform

LO-MATCH platform, a web-based functional tool meant to connect (or match) migrants' competences acquired in formal, non-formal and informal contexts to occupational profiles and to companies’ labour demand. LO-MATCH exploits semantic technologies to overcome the lexical differences in the descriptions of qualifications, résumés and job profiles. LO-MATCH makes it possible that when an job seeker draws up his/her curriculum (offer) this is expressed in a way that is “compliant” to the way companies/employers have expressed their requirements (demand) and vice versa so that the best MATCH between the job offer and demand can be found.
