Portfolio for youth leaders and youth workers
The European Portfolio for youth leaders and youth workers is an initiative of the Council of Europe in cooperation with experts and partners such as the European Commission and the European Youth Forum. It provides youth leaders and youth workers in Europe, volunteers or professionals, with a tool which can help them identify, assess and describe their competencies based on European quality standards. In using the portfolio, youth leaders and youth workers can contribute to the recognition of their experience and skills and to efforts to increase the recognition of youth work and non-formal education and learning. The portfolio has been tested in a number of countries and has been designed to enable users to make adaptations if necessary – for instance, by adding competences specific to their area of work. Related to this, there will be a seminar on the recognition of the youth leaders and youth workers and launching of the European youth work Portfolio in Strasbourg on 19-21 November 2014 in Strasbourg, France. Deadline to apply is 19 October 2014.
