Validation of non-formal and informal learning is becoming popular as the tool with the help of which a wider range of people can enlarge their individual potential and employability, become included and competitive. Every European country has got its own policy of validating the results of non-formal vocational education and training (VET) and assessing mechanisms. Ukraine started to work out its national strategy in validating processes and has had little experience in it so far. Hence, the goal of the research is to investigate the core indicators which are used in EU to monitor “the design, implementation and fine-tuning” of validation policies. A complex of corresponding methods was used: literature overview, analysis, synthesis, systematization, descriptive and prognostic methods. The literature sources were mostly reports of EU organizations and statistical data that gave the overall picture of the indicators of current VET. 2 types of core indicators for non-formal VET policy were found out: quantitative and qualitative. All in all, more than 140 quantitative and qualitative indicators are used by EU. They were called ideal indicators as they included those that would be desirable to improve monitoring VET and lifelong learning. 36 core ones were selected being based on 3 factors: access, attractiveness and flexibility; skill development and labour market relevance; overall transitions and employment trends. Their core indicators used in assessing initial and continuous VET were described in reference to National Qualification Frameworks. It was shown that links between NQF and validation varies. Besides, qualifications obtained through validation and those received in a traditional way through formal education may differ in their value. The perspectives for further researchers in this field were outlined, as well.
