This paper presents three perspectives on the Validation of Prior Learning
(VPL) in the Nordic countries. Firstly, it outlines the Future Competence Agenda
addressed in the Nordic Network for Adult Learning (NVL). Secondly, it discusses
the implementation of the legal framework for VPL, and VPL practices in Denmark.
It goes on to present a good practice example of how to adopt validation principles
in the use of tailored tools for applicants with migrant backgrounds. In the good
practice example, the paper discusses how to cope with the issue of language
barriers and understandings within traditional text-based approaches to the
assessment of study skills in Higher Education.
