Non-formal Education

The variable economic conditions of today’s world dictate the need for continued learning and terms of the life-long education concept. People have an opportunity to engage in educational activities that correspond to their interests and demands which are organised in a non-formal way, parallel to formal education that implies the structured and systematic acquisition of educational programmes, which are approved by state recognised educational or professional qualification certificates. The professional competency acquired in non-formal education is also formed by knowledge, skills and abilities gained through personal life and job experience.

The evaluation of professional competencies mastered in the process of the non-formal education of an applicant, is based on a test of the corresponding professional standard at the professional qualification examination.
