CONCLUSIONS of the GFYP

PORTFOLIO FOR YOUTH LEADERS & YOUTH WORKERS
NO MORE LEFT...


The European Portfolio for youth leaders and youth workers is an initiative of the Council of Europe in cooperation with experts and partners such as the European Commission and the European Youth Forum.

It provides youth leaders and youth workers in Europe, volunteers or professionals, with a tool which can help them identify, assess and describe their competencies based on European quality standards.

After distributing hundreds of Portfolios in Europe and beyond, our English stock is now empty. But keep an eye on this site, as a brand new online version is due towards the end of 2014!

In the meantime, you may still use your Portfolio in its online versions, in English, German, Dutch, Turkish and Russian!! (the French Portfolio is still available in its paper version.)

If you don't know the Portfolio yet, have a look at the presentation...
