Teams and Talents in the Third Sector (3T Portfolio) is an EU co-funded project that was launched in October 2010 and which ended in December 2012. The project brought together nine organisations in the framework of a Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation strand of the Lifelong Learning Programme. The project relied on the experience and outcomes of a previous project, the competences e-Portfolio for arts and culture professionals – Portolano (2007-09). Portolano promoted the use of new forms of valorisation of personal knowledge, experience and creativity. Its success in breaking away from the normalised CV led to the 3T Portfolio project in which innovative ways of promoting skills were put to test on a collective level.

The aim in 3T Portfolio was to first train counsellors to run workshops with teams from the social economic sector in the process and creation of a collective portfolio reflecting the team's or organisation's competences. Following this initial training, workshops with teams in organisations from the social sector were conducted as part of the project. Counsellor training and collective skills portfolio workshops in the participating countries were monitored throughout to regulate processes and to provide the best conditions to attain the project aims. KC was in charge of quality management and evaluation to support these processes.

The project's partners held their final project meeting in Paris in November 2012.

The other partners who participated in the project are: Itinéraires Formation (project promoter), and Coopérer pour Entreprendre, both based in Paris (FR); Capacity London (UK); uniT, and St:WUK - Steirische Wissenschafts, Umwelt und Kulturprojektträger – both based in Graz (AT); Der Paritätische Landesverband Niedersachsen, in Hannover (DE); VNB – Verein Niedersächsischer Bildungsinitiativen – in Barnstorf (DE); Université de Bretagne Sud in Lorient (FR).
