KMOP, in the frame of the European Lifelong Learning project titled "ValidVol: validation of key competences in voluntary service organisations", participated in the international training seminar which took place in Linz, on the 21st and 22nd of January 2015. The seminar aimed at the training of experienced volunteers. In total, twenty five participants, coming from Austria, Greece, Italy, Spain and U.K, shared their thoughts on volunteering and were properly trained so as to become "master validators". The master validators will support the volunteers who will participate in the ValidVol validation process.

The ValidVol validation process intends to capitalize on significant experiences made across Europe on the validation of non formal and informal learning through volunteering; it is based on a tool developed specifically to validate the key competences acquired by senior volunteers during their volunteering.
