The project IMAGES (I Manage and Empower My Skills) aims to support managers of not-for-profit, third sector organisations to identify their competences, their further developmental needs and provides them with opportunities to develop their skill set in a way beneficial for their organisation but that would also create avenues to transfer their competences from one EU Member State to another.
Building up on a research component, the first output will be a European Repertoire of Skills for these managers, transferable across the EU and similar in nature to the ESCO qualifications. To make this a reality for third sector managers, the second output of the project shall be a series of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for professionals who are engaged in the process of identification and documentation to the recognition of skills. The project is to provide a voice to the civil society sector in the EU debates on the validation and acquisition of competencies, building up recommendations for a European framework that can help the third sector managers.
