EVOLVET_banner_blogger_700European VOLunteer coordinators Vocation Education and Training



EVOLVET  is a two-year strategic partnership coordinated by the Spanish organisation CONGDCAR .

There are six European partners working with development projects for social inclusion and education working together on EVOLVET project:


The project aims at giving a positive impulsion to the training of volunteer coordinators by providing a standardised tool-kit containing on-the-job training materials for skills and competences commonly demanded to volunteer coordinators across Europe, not only for the management of development projects, but also on the concrete education and training of the volunteers taking part on them.


EVOLVET_logo_squareDuring the project duration, partners will use the collected information and materials to create a common tool-kit that will be tested on the different partner countries in order to ensure its quality and improve it using real volunteer coordinators working on development projects. This will directly contribute to promote the transparency and recognition of their qualifications and competences using also already established systems based on measurable recognition at transnational level, including those acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning. Moreover, the project will also run transnational training mobilities and multiplier events that will make possible to volunteer coordinators from the different partner countries not only to take part in common education initiatives about volunteers management embedded within the activities of the project, but also to participate on learning activities about this topic on their home countries.

The first meeting 

 The first meeting of EVOLVET was held on  the 9th – 12th of December 2015 in  Logroño, Spain where local coordinators of EVOLVET project on each partner organisation and professionals who will create the materials and intellectual outputs met to  present their work and to schedule project activities.

Once all the organisations were described, all the representatives checked together the general guidelines of the project, future steps, tasks to be done, administration procedures and justification documents related to it.The second day of the meeting was mainly used to agree the dates of the next activities of the project and especially to start to work on the future intellectual outputs of EVOLVET. Attendees had not only the chance to establish the general structure of the project materials, but also to work in small groups about its content and share among them the results obtained during the whole day by a common reflection and evaluation.
