e-VOC: online training for Volunteer Coordinators on the validation of competences


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.


Between 12th and 16th December, the four partner organisations of the e-VOC project met in Madrid (Spain) for the first project meeting.


The first day of the meeting began with a warm welcome from Luciano Poyato (President of the Spanish Volunteering Platform) and Mar Amate (Director of the Spanish Volunteering Platform) who congratulated the delegates from the partner organisations for their commitment to improving the quality and accessibility of training for Volunteer Coordinators in Europe.
The delegates used the first project meeting to set strong foundations for the work of the partnership. In particular, they worked on the development of the training content, reviewing the work done 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 before the second project meeting in Bemmel (The Netherlands), planned for May 2017. During the meeting in Bemmel, the delegates from the partner organisations will prepare for the next project activity, the testing of the online training course with Volunteer Coordinators from Italy and Spain.
