Updated on il y a 3 mois

What is it?

The Validation of prior learning (VAE) Without Borders allows you to:

  • Recognize your professional and / or volunteer experiences carried out in your country of origin or in France;
  • Transform this experience into a diploma recognized in France;
  • Be accompanied by advisers specializing in the VAE course.

How to do it?

Here are the conditions to do the VAE Sans Frontières:

  • To have a residence permit of less than 5 years
  • To come from a country outside the European Union
  • To have a professional or voluntary experience allowing to justify at least the equivalent of one year of activity (1607 hours)
  • Have the desire to have this experience recognised by a diploma

To do VAE Sans Frontières, you can contact:

  • Either directly the academies offering this support (11 in France: Paris, Créteil, Versailles, Dijon, Normandy, Lille, Nancy-Metz, Reims, Montpellier, Toulouse and Nice).
    >> Contact vae-sansfrontiè for the contact details of the correspondents in the territories.
  • Or a professional accompanying you in the process of employment.

The presentation of your professional and / or voluntary background will allow the VAE advisers to guide you:

  • in the search for the evidence requested for the admissibility file
  • on the choice of a diploma and to register "officially" in the process.

For this, it is necessary to contact the DAVA (Academic systems for the validation of prior learning) in your region:

What happens next?

During your VAE Sans Frontières course, you will be able to benefit from personalized, individual or collective help:

  • Methodological support (support for the presentation of the work structure, choice of experiences to be described, etc.)
  • French as a foreign language (FLE) training to improve your language level
  • Preparation for the oral presentation to the jury ...
