MAIN THEME OF THE PROJECT
Validation of non-formal learning and its value for the employment of the youth. Today, the young people can obtain a YOUTHPASS certificate only with their participation in Erasmus+/ Youth activities such as Youth Exchanges, Mobility of Youth Workers and European Voluntary Service.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES
The overall aim is to promote the recognition of non-formal and informal learning.
(A) Promotion of better use of the EU transparency and recognition tool YOUTHPASS
(B) Improvement of the level of key competences and skills of youth professionals
(C) Dissemination of good practices in the use of YOUTHPASS
YOUTHPASS is the strategy of the European Commission for the recognition of the competences gained by the participants in the different activities granted in the frame of Erasmus+/ Youth in Action Programme. Since 2007, more than 631.000 young people and youth workers or leaders have received a Youthpass certificate, after their participation in more than 45.000 projects implemented by 20.140 different organisations in Europe. Recognition of non-formal learning in the youth field is about recognising the work and learning achievements of young people and those active in youth work and youth organisations. As a recognition instrument, YOUTHPASS can be particularly beneficial for young people with fewer opportunities.
