Thanks to a team of experts in the field of Human Resources and the field of Volunteering, we have selected 25 soft skills that are crucial for volunteer experiences and job searches in the most diverse sectors. Find out what they are and which ones you acquired during your volunteering period.
Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations. In particular The Glore Network is a Capacity Building in the Field of Youth funded in the 2018 call with the main goal of promoting “the recognition of volunteering experiences through: a- the further development of GloRe Certificate System; b- increasing the number of organisations using it.
If you have any doubts or questions feel free to contact us, we will be happy to help you out. But remember, if your NGO is in the Network they already know how to use the system so first ask your mentor or tutor as they are there to guide you through the system.
No worries! Any NGO has the possibility to join our network. And, if they fulfill the quality standards of the network, in a few months they can start to use the Certification System.
Our experts have estimated that to give full value to your certificate it should have maximum 5 soft skills in it. So you can assess more soft skills but in each certificate you generate you can have a maximum of 5 soft skills. This will make your profile stronger and give you the possibility to create different certificates according with different job positions. On the other hand the certificate would be too poor having only one soft skill in it, so all certificates have minimum 2 and maximum 5 soft skills.
Yes, you can! With the help of your Host Organisation you can generate different certificates with different sets of soft skills. And if you have a volunteering experience in another period or with another organisation, you can also create new certificates according with your new learning achievements.
In order to claim a certificate you must participate in a full time volunteering period of at least 3 months or you must do at least 100 hours of volunteering in the Hosting Organisation during 10 months.
