Woodual

Description

The project aims at proposing an integrate and complete strategy for improving youth employability and a better school-to-work transition. In particular, the project will foster the collaboration between VET institutions and employers in the wood and the furniture sector, contributing to adapt curriculum and qualification profiles and proposing and testing a cooperation framework between enterprises/employers and VET institutions to define integrated transnational dual learning models.

In particular the project aims:

  • To contribute to adapt curriculum and qualification profiles by investigating the technological and soft skills gap in the professional profiles for the Wood Treaters, Cabinet Makers and related Trade Workers (ESCO 752 profiles and ISCO 08).
  • To contribute to overcome youth stereotypes and biased perceptions concerning skilled manual occupations and traditional economic sectors
  • To increase organizational, social, emotional, entrepreneurial and technological skills and competences in VET students and workers
  • To propose and test a cooperation framework between different stakeholders (especially enterprises/employers and VET institutions) to define integrated transnational dual learning models: one model would not fit every situation, but a core concept can be proposed, accompanied by a "modelling engine" to support adaptation to several sectors and countries.
  • To support the implementation of 2013 Communication on Opening up education: promoting the development of new modes of delivery of training, including virtual mobility and e-learning.
  • To evaluate this first experience of model design and implementation, with the scope of identifying shortcomings and transferable solutions.

Description

Euro4Science 2.0 is a spinoff of a very successful partnership, previous Euro4Science Erasmus + Project. Euro4scince includes partners from Portugal, Poland, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and the UK

Euro4Science 2.0, includes the development of a Forensic Science Educational Toolbox which, despite exploring the same "case-file" forensic like approach as in euro4Science 1, now pretends to wide activities subject expanding the range of topics from STEMs. The philosophy of enquiry education and case files exploration complemented with lab and field activities is now comprehensive to incorporate important priorities of present day citizenship and challenges including health education, environmental sustainability and inclusive society and human rights.

In order to implement the innovative educational activities proposed and responding to a clear identified need, Euro4Science will promote the creation of a network of teachers properly trained in a hierarchical chain of workshops, from central "Train the trainers" hubs to local "hotspots" in order to reach a significant number of teachers and through them ultimately by secondary school students.

Hence the objectives of the project, include:

  • Tackling of early school leaving
  • motivation of disadvantage students
  • promote scientific and media literacy
  • address values and topics such as  freedom, tolerance , non-discrimination and respect for  human rights
  • address environmental sustainability and health by exploring transdisciplinary "Case Files"
  • develop activities related to everyday hot topics which are transmitted via media and internet, thus requiring proper literacy

Description

BLEND IN aims to prepare and empower one of the most vulnerable groups of our times, young migrants & refugees seeking a better life in a third-EU country. The ultimate objective of the project is to develop the social, civic, intercultural competences of the young refugees and migrants resettled in a host country, inform them on their rights and promote their autonomy, active citizenship and participation in social life and labour market, thus preventing their social exclusion, combating discrimination and segregation by facilitating their smooth cultural and social integration in the host community.

To achieve this objective, the BLEND IN partners will develop a cultural, social and language integration toolkit in the form of a mobile application, orienting the young newcomer refugees into the hosting societies’ cultural and social realities and norms. As the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) underlines, cultural orientation is a very important part of a well-managed resettlement process, that contributes to reducing refugees’ concerns and overall anxiety, while at the same time increasing their chances of successful integration. Integration is essential for all stakeholders (migrants/refugees and receiving societies), not only as a way of providing economic and cultural benefits but also for ensuring the security and stability of societies as a whole. As refugee integration is a two-way process that involves both refugees and the receiving societies, the project will provide the young refugees and migrants, recently resettled in a new country, with the appropriate tools to help them safeguard their cultural and religious identity while empowering their integration in the new community by introducing to them the most important social, cultural and language elements in their hosting communities, promoting that way intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, tolerance and respect of cultural diversity and human rights.

 Activities

Two Intellectual Outputs:

  • Development of Country-specific Language, Cultural and Social Orientation Material
  • Development of the Refugee Orientation Handbook for Operators
  • Dissemination activities

Description

Europe wide, female labour market participation is lower than male one. It is well known that childbearing, care tasks, conciliation needs hinder women employment. Research has shown that many women exit the job market after childbirth. This trend is particularly strong among the more vulnerable segments of female population (e.g. low educated, low-skilled, of migrant origin).

In order to answer to unskilled mothers’ request of help, social professionals need to set up complex and multi-layered methods of social intervention to address the social/emotional/relational roots of the unskilled mothers’ unemployment or inactivity problems.

Hence the objectives of the project, include:

  • To increase social professionals’ capacity to frame help’s request within beneficiaries’ social/cultural/relational roots.
  • To provide social professionals with the tools necessary to read complexity of women work-family balance situation, also through an understanding of conciliation that goes beyond the mere provision of family care services.
  • To design, test and share innovative pedagogical methods of women guidance and emporwementaccross the JUMP partners, relational inclusion and employability.

Description

The project “MADE in EU” aims to contribute to the goals of the "Europe 2020", promoting inclusive growth and cohesive society, through the exchange of best practices, experiences, methodologies and strategies in adult education, in the framework of technological, economic and migratory change, that are transforming both our society, both the labor market, which requires new skills and constant knowledge updates.

Small ‘vulnerable” groups of adults excluded or de-motivated to take part in lifelong learning (target groups) will be identified as well as training needs of these target groups in terms of key and soft skills (communication skills, digital competence; learning to learn social and civic competences, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, cultural awareness and expression).

The objectives of the “MADE in EU” project are:

  •  to exchange good practices, examine and experiment with methods and strategies in order to develop new effective methods and tools for adult learning;
  •  analyze the causes and contribute to reducing the barriers between those who are included or excluded from education permanently;
  •  to promote the acquisition of skills in adults, with particular attention to groups at risk of social exclusion, as a way to promote the welfare and participation in social and democratic life;
  •  to raise the awareness of local actors in the various countries involved on the need for effective action to adult learning.
 Activities

 Activities to be implemented:

  1. Analysis of the causes of social exclusion and in local contexts of the partners involved and the role of training / education in adults who are at risk of social exclusion.
  2. Studies on adult education models in the various countries involved and exchange of good practice on adult learning using non-formal methods;
  3. Set up of a group of adult learners and a questionnaire in order to identify their training needs, about the basic and digital skills.
  4. Development and implementation of "training modules" for adult education linked to the key and digital skills (in particular by using the peer to peer approach, the andragogical method, and learning by doing);
  5. Creation of innovative tools that can be used for adult education based on non-formal education methods (website content; Guidelines -booklets and apps).
  6. Dissemination of results and good practices emerged from the project and research on possible connections between formal and non-formal education for adults
