We are so excited to start the European Badge Alliance strategic partnership!
The project kicked off at the first partnership meeting on 15-16 December 2015 in Forli, Italy, hosted by the leading partner UNISER.
The project is about finding a common competence framework among different mobility programmes for young people, which refers to the 8 key competences for lifelong learning. Based on this framework, badges will be designed for different mobility programmes and organisations will be able to customize them. This set of badges will be issued through the Badgecraft platform and will be piloted as from summer 2016 within the different mobility programmes of partner organisations. Guidelines on the use of badges will be drafted accordingly. In 2017 the focus will be on drafting policy recommendations for the promotion of badges and their integration in CVs at European level, and disseminating the outcomes of the project.
The next meeting will take place in Brussels at the end of March and will be hosted by EFIL. The main focus will be the design of badges and the definition of issuing procedures and criteria.
