The project increases the employability of people over 50 by encouraging them to take up volunteering as a way to provide a social service to the local community, but also as a widely recognised non formal and informal learning experience through the certification of key competences acquired during the service.
The objectives of the project are:
- To create a model of validation of key competences acquired during senior volunteering and to test it;
- To promote the acquisition of key competences through senior volunteering;
- To contribute to set up a European system of recognition of competences acquired through non formal and informal learning by people over 50;
- To promote the exchange of good practices at European level on validation of key competences in non formal and informal learning for people over 50.
