We will describe below the procedure a volunteer needs to follow in order to receive:
The GloRE Participation Certificate
The GloRe Soft Skills Certificate
2.1 The GloRE Participation Certificate
In order to obtain a participation certificate, volunteers should have been involved in a voluntary work project with one of the organization members of The GloRe Network for a minimum of 20 days
At the end of his/her volunteering time, the volunteer can go directly to this page and fill the fields required to issue his/her certificate of participation (name of the organization, dates, etc.)
The Host/Coordinating Organization will then validate the information provided and send back the participation certificate to the volunteer by email.
2.2 The GloRe Soft Skills Certificate
For the volunteer to receive the Soft Skills Certificate he/she has to:
- Fill out the evaluation form during the last month of her/his volunteering period on the project. This form is a key element for The GloRe Network to monitor the quality standards defined in the GloRe Charter for the organizations’ member of The GloRe Network.
- The volunteer will then receive from the Host/Coordinating Organization a unique code to access the interface of the GloRe Certificate Form.
- The volunteer can now select 5 to 10 competencies (soft skills) for which he thinks he/she has reached a “Work Ready” level while on the project. He will use the Soft Skills Framework on which is based the GloRe certificate and should be supported by the Host/Coordinating Organization during that process.
- For each Soft Skill selected, the volunteer should describe how and to which extend that Soft Skill was acquired. This description will not appear on the certificate but will help the Host/Coordinating Organization to validate if the volunteer actually reached that level.
- Towards the end of the project, the volunteer has to self-assessed 5 to 10 competencies (soft skills) for which he thinks he/she has reached a “Work Ready” level while on the project.
- The volunteer and the Host/Coordinating organization will then meet to discuss the self-evaluation done by the volunteer and validate the competencies acquired during the project. At the end of that discussion, the volunteer and the Host/coordinating Organization will agree on the competences and level reached and the certificate will be generated accordingly. It could be done during the Final Evaluation Meeting or during a specific time dedicated to the certification.
- The volunteer will then receive by the end of his/her volunteering a signed copy of the GloRe Certificate of competences from the Host/Coordinating Organization.
