The EBA project has been presented on 13th October at the European parliament in Brussels within the Lifelong Learning week. It featured in the programme of a debate on ‘Validation of volunteers’ skills’ organised by the European Alliance for Volunteering (EAV).
This was a great opportunity to network with other projects focused on validation of skills. This is a key moment for making sure that competences gained through non formal and informal learning can be recognised and displayed in the Europass CV. In fact, the European Commission published a proposal to revise the Europass Decision . With this revision, the Commission aims to simplify and modernise these tools for the digital age and to add a new feature using big data to map and anticipate labour market trends and skills needs. The new Europass Framework will build upon this successful formula with easy to use tools to help people identify and communicate their skills and qualifications in all EU languages. These include: an improved online tool for creating CVs and skills profiles; free self-assessment tools to help you evaluate your skills; tailored information on learning opportunities across Europe; information and support to help you get your qualifications recognised; labour market intelligence about what skills are most in demand and where.
