Exchange of practices to educate, recognise and train inclusive skills for employment.
“EXPERTISE: Exchange of practices to educate, recognise and train inclusive skills for employment” is a 24-month strategic partnership at international level that will be implemented between the 01/09/2017 and the 31/08/2019 thanks to the support of the Key Action 2 of the European Commission and its Erasmus+ programme.
Coordinated by the Paula Montal school of Logroño (Spain) in cooperation with ASPECT (Bulgaria), ACP (Greece), VsIEduplius (Lithuania), WSBiNoZ (Poland) and PROANDI (Portugal), this initiative aims to overcome the needs that trainers and educators of young people with fewer opportunities currently face to provide them those interpersonal skills and intrapersonal competences required to guarantee their social inclusion and facilitate their jump from the training and education field to the labour market.
Thanks to an interactive work between education bodies, private training entities and non profit organisations, EXPERTISE will allow to create a cooperation framework to make possible an exchange of good practices at European level related to the training of youth for employability but focused on the self analysis and active empowerment of its beneficiaries. In order to make this possible, the project will carry out six transnational meetings (one on each partner country) with the objective of allowing their attendees to get to know the training programmes on employability of youth on risk of exclusion of the partner organisations, promote the interaction among their teams towards their professional development and discover their most successful methodologies on the mentioned field (that will be replicated and tested afterwards by the staff and beneficiaries of all the project partners on their countries).
All the project outputs and results will be synthesized in a transnational training course for facilitators that will take place in La Rioja (Spain) at the end of the project. It will allow to open its materials to other professionals on the education and training field of young people with fewer opportunities who did not have the chance to participate in previous activities of the project. This training course will make also possible to test, improve and present the final product of EXPERTISE: a manual about the training of young people with fewer opportunities on interpersonal and intrapersonal skills to promote their social inclusion and facilitate their access to the labour market. All the project results will be accessible during its implementation thanks to the different dissemination channels that will be created by its partnership and to the project website (that will make possible not only to get to know more about the EXPERTISE, its partners or stages, but also to access to all the materials developed during the project by its partners in a permanent way that could guarantee their free access and use).
Thanks to all these activities and processes, EXPERTISE will reinforce not only the training of those in charge of guiding the training and inclusion of young people on risk of exclusion, but also will increase the employability of youth at local and transnational level thanks to the use of tools easily transferable to a wide variety of social contexts.
