Assessment of prior formal and informal learning

Assessment of formal and informal learning, realkompetansevurdering (RKV), Upper Secondary subjects

If you have obtained skills through work or education, but cannot document them, you can apply for an assessment of your skills. Through the assessment process, your skills will be assessed against the aims stated in the Norwegian curriculum. The assessment is done in Norwegian. The curricula are found  at Udir.  

Oslo Adult Education provides guidance about the procedure of assessment of formal/non-formal competence in vocational and academic subjects. Oslo VO strongly recommends that you have a talk with one of our counsellors before applying for assessment of real competence (RKV).
