The SoftSkills4EU is designed to provide a comprehensive offer of high quality non-formal adult education and training in order, not only to gain, key skills related to Soft Skills but also to offer a standardized validation which in line with already developed Europass tools. At the first stages of project development, we will make a needs analysis among employing organizations, job seekers and career counselling organizations, to identify main soft skills needed, which will serve as the basis for the development of a framework for soft skills competences. Next step will be to collect examples of best practices for each of the selected competences to be developed. They will also be used as the basis of the development of the Soft skills curriculum, learning tool syllabuses, teaching materials, e-learning materials and assessment methods. After that we will also develop an Open Badges (OB) ecosystem for the SS for jobseekers and develop a European passport supporting document (in accordance with a standard established by the language passport as one of the Europass existing tools).
