Ongoing debates

A call for external evaluators of Erasmus+: Youth in Action and the European Solidarity Unit has been launched with the aim of increasing the pool of external evaluators for evaluating the roles of projects and final reports in Erasmus+: Youth in Action; and for evaluation of applications for the quality label, project applications and final reports in the European Solidarity Unit programme.

As regards the recognition of skills, the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport wants to make a space for an in-depth discussion about recording of non-formally and informally acquired skills. The Ministry set up a working group with the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, the Ministry of Public Administration and other key actors from the education system and public, private and non-governmental sectors with the following aims:

a) to ensure the credibility of recording by improving the quality and verifiability of information;

b) to ensure the visibility of recording systems, both for potential users and those who provide recording tools;

c) ensuring greater interoperability between systems by providing a common platform;

d) ensuring the recognition of the system by the state.
