e-VOC: Online training for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of competences
The e-VOC project aims to offer a new online learning module thereby improving accessibility and quality of training for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of volunteer competences. To do so, four organisations from four European countries have joined forces to develop the first open and multilingual online training course for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of non-formal learning competencies in the voluntary sector.
Working together until spring 2018 the partners will co-design, test and launch the online module for Volunteer Managers. Volunteer Managers that complete the module will be to create learning outcomes for their volunteer programmes with the aim of bringing their volunteers on a formal educational journey aligned with accreditation systems. Volunteers will be able to map their learning from their experiences to the programme learning outcomes and be able to demonstrate active learning. In leveraging Volunteer Managers capacity to instil a love of learning with volunteers, the module will highlight lifelong learning opportunities.
This project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, is a joint initiative of the Spanish Volunteering Platform (Spain), CSVnet (Italy), EDOS Foundation (The Netherlands), and National University of Ireland, Galway with Volunteer Ireland (Ireland).
