EUCIS-LLL Annual Conference 2011 on Volunteering within Education & Training

The European Civil Society Platform on Lifelong Learning (EUCIS-LLL) gathers 25 European networks working in education and training. Together, these organisations cover all sectors of education and training including networks for higher education, vocational education and training, adult education and popular education; networks for students, school heads, parents, HRD professionals, teachers and trainers. Through its members, EUCIS-LLL embodies lifelong learning.

Volunteers play an essential role within education and training organisations in the formal and non-formal systems. For instance, it is crucial to look at the role of volunteering to develop skills and competencies for personal, social and civic development as well as to look at ways of recognizing or validating them. Educational providers have also a specific role to play regarding volunteering in terms of guidance and training. The conference tackled these issues notably during its four thematic workshops. It took place during the European Year 2011 on Volunteering and aimed to contribute to the debates by providing a specific insight on lifelong learning. Experts from the various sectors and levels of education and training participated to share their experiences and worked on policy recommendations.
