By Monique Leegte | NEC Netherlands. Inland Mobility: a tool to record the skills of volunteers
For two years now, the Dutch NEC has been testing the Inland Mobility as a tool to make the skills and competences of volunteers visible and usable. The experience gathered so far has been encouraging. Therefore, a pilot organisation, Scouting Gelderland, has taken the initiative to a next step: providing guidance and support for volunteer organisations that wish to offer a record of skills acquired by their volunteers.
The project partners have invited volunteer organisations to participate in a survey to inform the creation of an inventory recording learning outcomes acquired during volunteering activities. Based on the outcomes of the survey, NEC Netherlands plans to develop and test a series of support and guidance tools for volunteer organisations.
The project is carried out in close cooperation of the Dutch NEC and the European Volunteer Centre. Other project partners involved in the initiative are Education and Social Research Centre (Poland), National University of Ireland, Czech Council of Children and Youth, Pan Cyprian Volunteerism Coordinative Council, and Scouting Gelderland (The Netherlands).
The project is based on the Policy Agenda for Volunteering in Europe, and relates also to the Council Recommendation on the validation of non-formal and informal learning. For more information, please contact Jo Peeters, project manager, or Monique Leegte, NEC NL, Télécharger la newsletter.
