This training seminar on Europe's experience in the recognition, validation and accreditation (RVA) of professional competences acquired from non-formal and informal education and Policy development in adult education is organized by the branch of the German Adult Education Association in Uzbekistan (DVV International) in collaboration with the UNESCO Tashkent Office, the UNESCO Institute for lifelong learning (Hamburg, Germany) and the Association for the harmonious development of adults and young people of Uzbekistan (AGRViMUS).

The purpose of the seminar is to familiarize a wide range of experts and representatives of the three countries of Central Asia (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan) with:
- EU experience in the field of recognition and validation of professional competence acquired from previous education (formal and informal) and practical activities;
- a successful practice of policy development in adult education with the example of several European countries and other regions of the world.

It is expected that up to sixty representatives of governmental, non-governmental and international organizations will take part in the seminars, mainly representing adult education providers and organizations interested in that field of action.
During the seminars, participants will have an opportunity to get acquainted with the current international discussions on adult education. The seminars will feature the latest practices in the development of legislation in the field of adult education and the development of mechanisms to its encouragement. Germany has valuable experience in these fields, where land laws of adult education have been established since the 70s XX century, the same as in the Nordic countries. Thus, the seminars provide an opportunity to study international experience and discuss the possibility of its implementation in Central Asia.
The seminar programmes include plenary and sectional meetings as well as round-table discussions.
