On 26th November the EU Council has adopted the Council recommendation on the Automatic Mutual Recognition of Diplomas and learning periods abroad which calls on automatic recognition of learning periods abroad within upper secondary education and training, with the learner not being required to repeat the programme year or achieved learning outcomes in the country of origin, provided that the learning outcomes are broadly in line with the national curricula in the country of origin.

EFIL, EEE-YFU and OBESSU welcome this step towards an European Education Area and the recognition of competences acquired through mobility. Here you can read our joint reaction.
