Speaking at the conference the President of ULIXES, Birde Berg, said that..

“The current round of EU funding under Erasmus+ offers significant opportunities for development of student and staff mobilities, in addition to projects to support transnational partnerships among Education, Training and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.”

The ULIXES Consortium is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2014 and its members have during that time made a significant contribution to VET, Professional Higher Education and regional development across Europe. The members attending the conference included delegates from Denmark, Portugal, Germany, Lithuania, Austria, UK and Italy.

NWRC is Lead Partner in European Volunteer Project

North West Regional College (NWRC) has recently been acknowledged as joint lead partner of a Grundtvig European Union programme aimed at recognising and accrediting the learning and skills development of individuals working in the voluntary sector.

Worth €400,890 and funded with the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme for the European Union, ‘ValidVol’ is a partnership project involving organisations from Italy, Spain, Greece, Austria, with NWRC acting as the United Kingdom partner. It is aimed at senior volunteers aged over 50 who are involved in voluntary services and wish to reinforce their employability, either because they are pensioners, under employed or unemployed. It will also recognise their learning potential.

The project will examine the significant experiences across Europe of non-formal and informal learning through volunteering, and to motivate senior volunteers to be involved in further adult learning activities and facilitate or improve their employability. It will run for two years during which time each of the partners will share best practice to examine the industry sectors, cultural events and community issues which they believe are most suitable for vocational collaboration, resulting in opportunities likely to be offered in areas such as event management, customer care and service, advisory support, first aid, and health & safety.
