Validation of non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL), the process that consist in the identification, documentation, assessment and certification of competences, is high on the agenda of the Lifelong Learning Platform. For that reason, LLLP partnered with 7 other organisations in the European Project “Job Bridge for volunteers” (2018-2020) to develop the capacity of volunteer-based organisations to assess the competences of their volunteers as well as their learning needs and progress.
For two years, the Lifelong Learning platform cooperated with 8 organisations (university, research centers, municipality, social cooperative, NGOs) from across the EU to develop a new inclusive programme for youth workers and young people, the COMANITY programme. As the European project is coming to its end and because it was such a great and successful programme, we want to give it a legacy. That’s why we are launching this call […]
On November 13th, LLLP with the support of COMANITY project partners organised an EU Round Table on the very timely topic of ‘Skills for the Future of Youth work‘ in Brussels (agenda). It was the COMANITY project’s final conference. The event was therefore also a celebration of two years of fruitful collaborative work between the nine organisations that composed the partnership. Over 60 participants from across the EU attended and actively contributed to the discussions.
The LLLPlatform is absolutely delighted to announce the dates of the 9th edition of the Lifelong Learning Week, which will be held in Brussels on December 2-6th!
This year it will be dedicated to “Learning Democracy, Values and Participation”! Debates will focus on the role of civil society organisations working in education to foster democracy: the ways and the places we learn about our society and the key place of common values in education!
The Lifelong Learning Platform’s Annual Conference took place on 19-20 June in Brussels, the perfect place to take stock of the EU elections and assess the role education will play in the future of Europe. It gathered stakeholders from all education sectors and interests, tackling together the topic of “Learning democracy, values and participation: the added value of lifelong learning”. A very dynamic discussion saw the light, and there was general concordance on some key issues.

Inclusiveness is one of the pillars of education: because of our core values, no education system can be considered successful without being inclusive. This is why efforts shall be made to make education as close to our idea of inclusiveness as possible, thriving to understand cultural and social differences without flattening them in a homogeneous maelstrom.
In these efforts to ensure inclusiveness, a great emphasis shall be placed on the role of civil society organisations, non-formal education providers and other […]
