Training was tailored on the needs of microenterprises in rural areas to enhance their competitiveness and support their growth in Europe and was built upon the findings of primary and secondary research that partners carried out in 6 countries to gauge needs and preferences of microenterprises in rural areas.

The OER Platform Demo is a very valuable 4 minutes videoguide which helps users to browse the OER Platform in order to find out information about the MICRO Project (background, objectives, activities, results), information about the partners and their activities as well as to fully access MICRO's training courses.

Given the high number of training courses developed, the videoguide is particularly helpful to enhance accessibility and ensure everyone can benefit from MICRO training and choose the most relevant topic for its own needs.

The OER Platform Demo is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abwP5CrH-VI&feature=youtu.be

Description

AXESS is the concrete answer to specific needs in the field of upskilling adults, with focus on Digital Skills for low skilled adult women.

The ultimate goal of the project is to enhance employability of women through developed and more proactive social and civic engagement. In today´s world this is firmly linked with the level of digital skills.

The above mentioned competences (sense of sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, social and civic competences, digital competence) are among 8 Key Competences of Lifelong Learning formulated by the European Commission. Also OECD deals with competences of adults, notably in the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The survey of problem solving in technology-rich environments, among other things, revealed that women in some countries have less developed digital skills than men.

AXESS addresses the needs of target groups (adult women) by developing and deploying concrete training and educational resources (OER, open educational resources) for adult women to advance their digital competencies and skills.

Hence the objectives of the project, include:

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.
