Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD)
An OECD project entitled Recognition of Non-formal and Informal Learning was launched in 2006 to investigate how much evidence exists on the benefits of such recognition, whether governments know enough about the impact of national policies on such recognition and under what conditions can such recognition be beneficial for all? The project has included over 20 OECD member countries and countries with strong links to the OECD. South Africa was represented by SAQA in this initiative. As preparation for a field visit by the OECD a Country Background Report was made available to the OECD in August 2007. A field visit by an OECD expert team then followed in February 2008. The OECD team consisted of Ms Joy Van Kleef (Canada), Dr Dennis Gunning (Wales) and Dr Patrick Werquin (OECD). Background reports on the other participating countries can be found on the OECD website. An analytical publication is currently being prepared by the OECD and should be available by the end of 2009.
