The competence subject is a key item in the policy and learning environment programmes of the European Community and very often it is one of the main topics in the discussion and programming agendas.
The rationale of this project is focussed on the mutual, shared recognition of eight Key competences for lifelong learning (*) which the standard LEVER has coherently referred to when it defined its thirteen competences.
In particular, the communication competences, cultural, social and civic, learning competences and social entrepreneurial skills. The general scope of the project is summarized in its title: "Modelling informal learning and transversal competences in the voluntary service experience to increase employment and mobility of citizens - LEVER".
The key innovative aspects of the project are:
> except for possible minor customizations related to the local laws, the model and process for the measure and certification of the soft skills will be a standard to be used at a transnational level, based on the European available tools, Europass, ECVET, and the EQF in terms of levels and learning outcome approach for recognition and certification;
> the creation of an initial European area based on mutual trust and common tools (namely Denmark, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland and Spain), where sharing common non-formal, informal learning paths in the voluntary cervice to be recognised by the market;
> the standardization of the model and process will enable its deployment and recognition, thus reducing the deployment and management costs (e.g. IT system-web site, operational manuals, etc.);
> young people will be stimulated to develop experiences in different countries, with the certainty that the feedbacks they will receive will have the same value in other European countries; it will be compliant with the European guidelines, criteria, rules (mainly, EQF, EUROPASS, ECVET);
> the project will involve the Industry Association as a Partner; it is a strong action that aims to build an important bridge between the non-profit and profit worlds. The result will be that the issued certificates will have great credibility in the labour world, facilitating the people employment.
