The aim of the E.T.- EVS TANDEM training is to empower EVS sending and receiving organisations to develop their projects in order to strengthen the key competencies of the volunteers to enter the labour market. In order to achieve this, the participants of the training will develop and upgrade their work in the EVS support cycles. The direct improvement of the organisational support system and the development of the EVS projects will result in the better employability of the volunteers, as they gain adequate knowledge, practices and experiences concerning their employment. The participants of the training identify the key activities of the EVS projects that can help the strengthening of the volunteers' entrepreneurial competencies. The organisation management and the development of EVS projects is implemented through several steps. The volunteers' key competences are improved through the empowerment of the organisations and youth workers.
The training is organised in Hungary with 6 countries involved (IT, RO, HR, D, TR, HU), each delegating 4 participants from different organisations. All of the partners and the participants have experience with EVS projects, they are sending, receiving and/or coordinating organisations. During the 9-day-long training the "beginner" and more experienced EVS organisations work together, form tandem pairs and help each other before, during and after the training. This way successful co-operations can be formed at local, national and international level too.
The knowledge gained during the training (good practices, methods, tools and experience) will be shared by the participants at local and international levels too. The participants and their organisations create direct impact on the improvement of youth work. After the training the cooperation between the organisations will become stronger, the knowledge-transfer will be highlighted. The quality of youth work will be improved, the EVS organisations will become more prepared and self-conscious about their work. Several methods, recommendations and tools will be developed to focus on the employability of the volunteers. These tools and methods can be used by the EVS organisations in the EVS cycle (preparation, on-going volunteer support and follow-up activities). This way the EVS projects will improve and their volunteers are better prepared for the labour market. The everyday work of the participating youth workers will be improved, as they exchange new methods and good practices at international level and this will result in the refreshment of the national and international youth work too.
