Public report of the TC on Competences Assessment Methodology applied to EVS training and evaluation cycle

Aims of the tool

To provide EVS support people (mentors, coordinators of the hosting and/or sending organization) with explanation and example concerning the application of Competences assessment methodology within EVS.

Description of the tool

This methodology has the aim of identifying, assessing and recognising capacities, skills, abilities and knowledge that we acquired through life experiences.
In the youth work field it is important to validate the learning process, recognizing how it was acquired and which competences have been developed; in particular because unfortunately not always non formal education certifications are recognized outside of this sector.
We believe that this method is particularly suitable for helping EVS volunteers believe and give the proper value to non formal competences acquired during EVS, and support them in the preparation of Youthpass.
The main propose is to involve EVS volunteers in a path that lead them to a renewed awareness of their competences: the volunteers can take time for themselves and share ideas, goals and ways to learn so to have a general overview of their life and start the EVS more aware of themselves and of their capabilities.
The whole approach is based on simple methodologies and concepts that must be shared to help volunteers during their EVS experience.
