GR-EAT Survey on the Recognition of Volunteers’ competences by Employers: Results now avaliable

In the framework of the GR-EAT project (AEGEE), EUCIS-LLL led a survey approaching employers on how they value volunteering in recruitment. Led from February to April 2015, it gathered 131 responses destined to evaluate the recognition of non-formal and informal learning prior, for and during employment. Three mismatches were revealed: first, between the value employers give to volunteering and their capacity to assess it; second, between assessment tools and employer’s knowledge of their existence, as well as correspondence to their needs; third, between the competences gained by volunteers and their capacity to highlight them to employers. The full survey is now available.
