The project CREDNET – Network for the Accreditation of the Managerial Skills was a transnational network, coordinated by Action Synergy and co-funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme (Leonardo da Vinci – Networks), that envisaged a common framework of competencies and qualifications for the recognition of and validation of entrepreneurial-related and managerial skills acquired in non-formal learning. This was achieved by developing a certification methodology and criteria to validate informal learning especially for the credibility and recognition of the competencies established.
