3rd Transnational Project Meeting in Patras, Greece

Last week, on the 4th and 5th of May, the 3rd transnational project meeting took place in the city of Patras, Greece. Participants were project partners from various European countries, namely, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Iceland, and Greece. The focus of the meeting was to finalize the development of an online self-assessment tool aimed at empowering individuals to evaluate the skills they have acquired through non-formal and informal learning procedures. Additionally, the partners discussed validation of learning processes in their countries and the upcoming Learning and Training Activity scheduled to be held in Marburg, Germany.

Finalizing the Self-Assessment Tool

The project partnership dedicated substantial time and effort during the meeting to finalize the self-assessment tool. This tool is designed to help individuals recognize and evaluate the skills they have gained through non-formal and informal learning experiences. By providing a structured framework and respective questionnaires, the tool aims to enhance self-awareness and support individuals in articulating their acquired soft skills effectively. The partners engaged in fruitful discussions, addressing the tool’s design, content, and user-friendliness, ensuring it caters to a wide range of users. Through collaborative efforts, they successfully finalized the self-assessment tool, marking a significant milestone for the project.

Self-assessment – Validation of Learning – Micro-credentials

The transnational project meeting in Patras and the accomplishments made signify the importance of the project’s overarching goals. Recognizing and validating skills obtained through non-formal and informal learning procedures is crucial in today’s rapidly evolving job market. Many individuals acquire valuable competencies through various life experiences, volunteering, or hobbies, but these skills often go unrecognized. The self-assessment tool developed by the project partnership aims to bridge this gap, empowering individuals to understand and articulate their skill sets confidently and ultimately lead them in validating them, through micro-credentials.

To summarize…

The 3rd transnational project meeting held in Patras, Greece, marked a significant step forward for the partnership in their efforts to promote the recognition, assessment and validation of skills obtained through non-formal and informal learning procedures. The finalized self-assessment tool will empower individuals to evaluate their competencies effectively. By creating tools and opportunities for individuals to recognize and utilize their skills, this project aims to enhance employability, foster personal growth, and create a more inclusive society that values all forms of learning.
