European Badges Alliance - 3rd Meeting in Bologna, Italy
Once more, on the 24th of October 2016, European Badges Alliance (EBA) partners got to meet to discuss and work together on EBA project. This time the meeting was in Bologna (Italy), after the meeting in Brussels during March 2016. The two-days-long meeting gave the chance to everybody to present where they stand related to the work being done. A lot of parallel workshops took place in order to cover various topics, but also to perform more work. Huge interest was given to developed frameworks and to the ones about to be fully developed and at the same time interesting was the outcomes of the ongoing testing face. YEU is on the process of testing, but also in finalizing the last frameworks of Junior and Senior Trainers, Organizers and the Framework of Badges for people participating in Internships or Job shadowing abroad (with the help of Semper Avanti).
On the occasion of the meeting, there has been a lot set and also there is also further preparation of the platform that the badges are to be claimed. At the same time, the website is being updated and there is also updates being implemented to have the badges fully integrated in CVs through the online platform. Related to the above, YEU is following the process carefully, as it strongly believes that this self-assessment tool can boost the “fight” for further recognition of Non Formal Education and therefore it will be implement as a standard process in all YEU activities in the near future.
