Valuing Education and Experience for Local Councillors

Local autonomy as a main trend in Europe implies the process of decentralisation, further developing new responsibilities for local authorities and local councillors. The professional environment of such local leaders has become more and more complex. In all European countries, new powers and competences have been delegated to local authorities (towns, departments, regions…) in various fields (social, economic, cultural and environmental). The role of local councillors is a moving reality: willing to be active and involved to one’s community is not enough any more. Specialised skills and competences in technical and administrative matters, as well as in entertainment and management, are required. Autonomy, competence and responsibilities are linked, raising the question of a status for local councillors in the European countries.
The project „Valuing Education and Experience for Local Councillors in Europe“ (VA2EL) will propose a portfolio for local councillors available through Internet (e-portfolio) to help identifying and value specific skills and competences acquired. Additionally it will think of a real validation (with a diploma) in the perspective of a professional insertion. Local councillors need a specific accompaniment to enhance the formal and informal learning they are experiencing. The expected impact is to improve integration of experience acquired by local councillors. The project will allow local councillors to value key competences enhanced by the Lisbon strategy: social and civic competences, entrepreneurship and leadership spirit, collateral digital competence.
It will allow an exchange of good practises between local councillors and European colleagues with diverse administrative background.
