In Europe there are vulnarable groups of youngsters who are not able to get employed as they do not have the relevant diploma or certificates. These are the beneficiaries of the project Shared Responsibility. Not having a diploma or certificate, does not mean that he/she has not gained skills and competences. From September 2016 to August 2018 the six project partners aim to develop a SHARE methodology and a SHARE system in order to recognize skills and competences of youngsters gained from informal, non-formal and formal learning. It is planned to make use of badges to confirm the skills and competences from different learning environments. This approach is attractive for young people. The badges will also increase the employability of the young people and at the same time strengthen their self-confidence and their active citizenship
The partner consortium comprises of six partners: Stichting Bloom and Stichting Xtra (Region The Hague, Netherlands), AC Amics de la Biblioteca de la Fonteta (Region Valencia, Spain), Volkshochschule im Landkreis Cham e.V. (Region East Bavaria, Germany), Associazione “In Progress” Calabria (Region Calabria, Italy) and Associazione Culturale IL VERGANTE (Region Piemonte, Italy). It is necessary to find regional tailor-made solutions together with the regional stakeholders: adult and VET education, secondary schools, employers, organisations/stakeholders and trainers/social workers involved in the work with young people with fewer opportunities, refugees and migrants. Some of these solutions might have the potential for being tranferred to other regions.
