The project ended in February – but the products are of course still accessible and can and should be used. The training offer also remains – as a KA1 offer.
One important element of the Job Bridge approach is the training course addressing volunteering facilitators. The aim of the course is to bring about the concept of validation and competence oriented learning to facilitators of volunteering actions. It seeks to enable them to further develop their offers and activities into learning experiences that make a difference also in the career pathways of the volunteers.
The Job Bridge consortium has turned the course that was piloted in February 2020 with 22 participants in a KA1 course and has already scheduled three courses for autumn 2021 and early 2022 – in the hope that travel will be possible again then.

This is the last call – if you have not submitted your project yet, you still have the chance to do so by 15th November 2020. We are looking forward to reading about your creative learning projects.
Due to the current situtuation we will not have the Award Ceremony in Brussels (Belgium) as planned. We will have a virtual event instead on 10./11.12.2020, where you will be given a slot to present your project.
In addition, we will make sure that your project gets a lot of visibility – it will be published in our newsletter and in our social media. As a small consolation for the missed trip we will send the winners some prizes.
Are you working with volunteers? Do you support them in validating their competences acquired, or do you have an innovative idea?
If you answer positively to these questions, Job Bridge European Award is for you!
We want you to be creative and present your learning projects in an innovative way. All ideas should take into account competences’ dimensions. The two best contributions will be invited to the Award Ceremony in Brussels (Belgium) on 3rd November 2020.

The Job Bridge partners will provide a three-day training course in Göttingen from 11th to 13th of February, 2020. It addresses representatives from volunteering organisations and adult education organisations welcoming volunteers and will enable them to implement competence-oriented approaches with volunteers and validate competences acquired in the voluntary activities.
Subsequently, all course participants will implement a learning project aimed to transfer and apply in practice the approach.
The second partner meeting took place on 07./08.10.2019 in Rome. The main purpose was to define the topics of the training course for volunteering facilitators and to set up the curriculum for the three-day course that will take place in February 2020 in Göttingen.
The main topics that are considered relevant are: Continue reading Partner meeting in Rome
What are the competences that you can acquire in voluntary activities – besides those that depend on the actual voluntary placement. This was one of the leading questions in the research phase. The partners built a first repository and consolidated it with extensive research activities. The resulting list contains 23 competencies. These are :
