• Adoption and development of a suitable common methodology for evaluating and certifying learning outcomes and qualifications;

• Adoption and testing certification process among partner countries including evaluation, validation and recognition of learning outcomes for the purpose of transparency of qualifications;

• Give a chance to youth workers to get their qualifications recognized, certified and valorized, which has a clear added value;

• Establishment of a stable consortium and trust among partner institutions and organizations in order to recognize equivalence between units of learning outcomes and provide a framework of cooperation;

• Facilitate the comparison of the knowledge, skills & competencies of persons working for youth organizations beyond national frontiers, contributing to geographic mobility;

• Provide higher transparency & efficiency to the selection processes & recruitment inside the NGOs;


The aforementioned aims and objectives are clearly linked to the European priorities of the call. The project focuses on using ECVET system as an instrument for the transparency and recognition of youth worker’s competences and qualifications acquired non-formally and informally through experience on the job. The suggested project will improve the individual competences of youth workers by providing them with recognition and motivating them to update their already acquired knowledge, skills & competences.

The consortium of partners will include a wide range of types of institutions who have had previous experience in the materialization of similar projects and who will contribute constructively to the materialization of the project. The consortium of partners consists of an association of youth organization, international youth network, an institute, university...etc. The partners will be capitalizing on their previous experience, extending this experience through the specific project and using their networks and partnership to disseminate the results.
