LEVER UP (Valuing informal learning and transversal competences experienced in the voluntary service to increase employability, social responsibility and mobility) project exploits the legacy from the previous project ‘LEVER’ (2014-2016). LEVER UP pursues two main objectives:
- Enhancing the mutual trust area, based on a common model and tools to value transversal competences in full transparency and transferability between VET, Volunteering and labor market.
- Implementing a dedicated service, able to foster the whole system at international and national level and to run at full speed
The project outcomes include the enhancement of the model, coherently with the ECVET, EQF and EU Passport systems; the e_LEVER Space, including the infrastructure and the content for an easy access of the toolkit, the training and validation services; the pilots to test in each country the obtained products and the set up of a valuable triangle system among the labour market, VET and the volunteering.
LEVER UP is funded by the European Commission, under the ERASMUS+ programme, KA2 Strategic Partnership. The project involves five European countries and nine partners: Fondazione Politecnico di Milano (Italy, lead partner), CSV.net (Italy), ECOLE – Enti Confindustriali Lombardi per l’Education (Italy), Fondazione SNS – Scuola Nazionale Servizi (Italy), ANCILaB (Italy), EC VPL European Centre Valuation Prior Learning (Netherlands), CEV – Centre Européen du Volontariat (Belgium), HOMINEM Challenge (Spain) and Good Network Foundation (Poland). The project starts in September 2017 and ends in November 2019.
