The recognition of the skills acquired through non-formal and informal ways is a subject that is becoming increasingly important in international debates on the employability of individuals, especially in the countries of the European Union that are setting up their national systems of qualifications. The main aim is to offer people a mechanism to value the skills acquired outside school and that this valuing is accompanied by a certification or accreditation that may have an exchange value; that is to say, which may be homologated by a diploma of formal education and used by employers in their processes of personnel selection.
