The training of Multipliers is part of “Global Recognition Certificate network”, a project funded by Erasmus+ Programme (European Commission – EACEA-KA2 Action), Capacity building in the Field of Youth.
It aims at boosting the development of the formal network of organisations that use the GloRe Certificate System and to increase the quality of the Certification System. In this framework the 14 project partners, 7 from Europe and 7 from Latin America – Joint (Italy), Rota Jovem (Portugal), My Small Help (Peru), SVI (Belgium), Grenzelnos (Austria), Jeunesse et Reconstruction (France), Brujula (Spain), Team4Youth (Romania), Bolivia Digna (Bolivia), Voluntario Global (Argentina), ICYE Brazil (Brazil), Vimex (Mexico), Fundacion Bolivar Education ( Ecuador) – developed, in cooperation with many other NGOs from Europe and Latin America, the new version of the certificate system.
It is a certification platform that allows both international and local volunteers to receive a certificate with the recognition of the soft-skills they acquired while volunteering.
The latest version of the platform, launched in March 2021, enables users to get a certificate either in English, Turkish, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese. The volunteers have the possibility to go through 26 e-learning modules, that help them in assessing their level in each soft-skill (the ones certified by the platform). Plus creating a short dossier about their learning. At the end of the process the host organisation will validate the certificate, taking responsibility for approving the information on it. The platform is complementary to the Youthpass and provides volunteers with a flexible and reliable certificate, while investing a few hours on it. The certificate has international recognition by the members of The GloRe Network international community and by several educational and public institutions.
The GloRe Network
The GloRe Network is the umbrella organisation that overviews the correct usage of the platform and the memberships. Other organisations need to become members of it in order to use the certificate platform.
