Ce diplôme est accessible par la voie de la Validation des Acquis de l’Expérience.

Validation of your acquired knowledge: recognition for your career

Recognized by the French Labor Code, this system allows for the recognition of one’s experience, whether professional, volunteer or union, through the validation of a professional certification registered with the RNCP, according to procedures other than those of an end-of-training exam.

Who is she talking to ?

The validation of acquired experience is open to all persons, whether salaried (on fixed-term or permanent contracts, temporary workers, etc.) or non-salaried, job seekers, volunteers, and public officials, regardless of the diplomas/titles/certifications previously obtained or their level of qualification.

There is only one condition: to justify a professional experience (salaried or not, voluntary…) of 1 year in continuous or discontinuous, in connection with the contents of the aimed RNCP title.

Who finances it ?

The VAE system is considered as a training action within the framework of professional training. As such, the costs related to the VAE (study of admissibility, support, validation session) can be paid for by your CPF, by your employer (through the OPCO), or by public financiers (Pôle Emploi, Regional Council…).

progress of the VAE device?

The VAE procedure and support is carried out via our partner IFG (OMNES EDUCATION Group).

Phase 1: Information, guidance, advice

Contact by e-mail or telephone with the VAE advisor in order to discuss the project of validation of acquired knowledge, to orientate oneself on the possibilities of titles to be validated, to inform oneself on the VAE procedure and on the possibilities of financing.

Phase 2: Study of admissibility

After confirming the choice, the VAE advisor sends the admissibility file. The study of admissibility allows us to determine if -a priori- the competences acquired by the candidate during his experiences could correspond to the competences attested by the targeted RNCP title. This file must be returned completed and accompanied by the necessary supporting documents. It is studied by the VAE referent and the person in charge of teaching the title in question. The admissibility is notified within 2 months following the reception of the complete admissibility file.

Phase 3: Support in writing booklet 2

In case of positive admissibility, the writing of the Booklet 2 can begin. It describes and analyzes the skills and knowledge acquired in the candidate’s professional and/or personal career, in relation to the skills repository of the qualification concerned. It will also be necessary to provide evidence of these achievements. An accompaniment can be proposed. It consists of individual and/or group meetings, intended to better understand the skills reference framework, to make a reflexive return on the professional and/or personal course in connection with this reference framework in order to bring the most relevant elements to this booklet.

Phase 4: Jury trial

At the end of the writing and submission of booklet 2, a VAE jury is organized. Its composition, consistent with that indicated on the RNCP sheet for the title concerned, includes professionals. The oral jury is an extension of the written file, it aims to exchange and argue about the candidate’s experiences and to evaluate skills in relation to the target framework.

After deliberation of the jury, several cases are possible:

– Validation of all the skills required to obtain the title: obtaining a parchment certifying the obtaining of the title,

– Partial validation of the certification, i.e. obtaining certain blocks of skills that make up the title: delivery of a certificate of the components acquired. The jury proposes means and/or modalities to obtain all the missing components of the certification. – Non-validation, the jury informs the candidate in writing and explains the reasons for this decision.
