education employment e-learning

Project EC-ASE focused on the validation of qualifications that were acquired informally by executives of training and counseling institutions in the social economy sector, with a simultaneous creation of a certificate of a European dimension. Through the project implementation, particular emphasis was given to the participation of women in all project activities.

The project centered on the promotion of qualifications’ transparency of employed individuals in institutions of training and counseling in the social economy sector.  It focused among others on the facilitation of employee mobility, the individualization of learning and the wider application of methodologies and procedures of certification that were developed in previous projects.

Additionally, the project aimed towards the certification of informal qualifications and the establishment of a European certificate of qualifications with the title “Advisor/Educator of Social Economy”, which would allow the professional growth of executives of advisory/counseling structures, the establishment of a European standard certification, the facilitation of the comparison of skills and dexterities and finally, the development of social enterprises.
