E-VOC Project Meeting

e-VOC: Second Transnational Meeting in Bemmel (Netherlands)

On 18th and 19th May, the four partner organisations of the e-VOC project met in Bemmel (Netherlands) for the second project meeting.

The e-VOC project aims at improving the offer, accessibility and quality of training for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of competences. To do so, four organisations from four European countries have joined forces to develop the first open and multilingual online training course for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of competences.

The delegates used this project meeting to evaluate the training content developed so far by each partner organisation and sharing feedback and advice to help each other.

The next step will be to finalise the development of the online training content and to test it with Volunteer Coordinators from Spain and Italy.

The results from the testing will be presented during the next project meeting, in Rome (Italy), planned for January 2018.

This project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, is a joint initiative of: the Spanish Volunteering Platform (Spain), CSVnet (Italy), EDOS Foundation (Netherlands), and National University of Ireland, Galway (Ireland).
