EFA held its first EFA Certification Symposium in Amsterdam on 13 June 2018.
The theme of the symposium was Developing and Improving Fundraising Education in Europe – Sharing Best Practices and Insights from Fundraising Education Research. The aim was to strengthen fundraising education in Europe by assessing and moving the EFA Certification accreditation scheme forward, as well as facilitating the exchange of knowledge.
Initially developed with EU funding, EFA Certification is a framework that enables members to develop national qualifications for fundraising based on one core syllabus and a set of fundraising competencies. Having been developed ten years ago, it is now to be reviewed and updated, ensuring the curriculum will continue to address the educational needs of modern day fundraisers.
EFA thanks Goede Doelen Nederland for hosting the event.
