(Credit system) An instrument designed to enable accumulation of learning outcomes gained in formal, non-formal and/or informal settings, and facilitate their transfer from one setting to another for validation and recognition. A credit system can be designed: – by describing an education or training programme and attaching points (credits) to its components (modules, courses, placements, dissertation work, etc.); or – by describing a qualification using learning outcomes units and attaching credit points to every unit.
