Non-formal education is part of a lifelong learning system that involves the acquisition of "knowledge and awareness", "skills" and/or "responsibility and autonomy" outside of formal education.

Recognition of non-formal learning enables a person to gain recognition of knowledge gained in a non-formal setting, obtain a full qualification or accumulate credits towards a qualification in the future.

⇒ to promote lifelong learning;
⇒ to promote personal development;
⇒ to promote the continuation of studies;
⇒ to facilitate the granting of qualifications;
⇒ to promote employment;
⇒ to promote career growth;
⇒ To promote self-employment.
