2. Cherry on the cake publication - Call for Content, Language & Style Editor

The renewal of the Cherry on the cake publication is at its final stage.

In 2015, Slovenian National Agency for the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme and SALTO South East Europe Resource Centre have published a brochure Cherry on the cake, which was based on the training module which ran under the same name since 2012. The aim of the training course as well as the brochure was and still is to build on the understanding of Youth Exchange as a highlight within a broader process of non-formal learning in youth work. It aims at discovering the potential of Youth Exchange as an instrument for building young people’s competences through active participation in developing the project.

The brochure has been renewed, and needs only the final editing. More about the context and requirements are available in the call for editor.

3. News on Youthpass: The Key Competences framework has been revised

The framework of the Key Competences for Lifelong Learning has been revised in May 2018. For the Erasmus+, the new framework appears on all the projects that have been entered into Youthpass database on August 20 or later. The change does not affect the Erasmus+ projects that have been entered into the Youthpass database before that date, even if the certificates are generated anew later on.

The new Key Competences also appear on all Youthpass certificates of the European Solidarity Corps programme. More information on this on the official web page of the Youthpass.
