transVETjob

Project Number: 2015-1-PL01-KA202-016632

The aim of the project is to provide easy recognition of skills and qualifications on the labor market in Germany, Poland and Portugal focused on the professions of electrician and car mechanic. It will present not only the differences in the results of vocational education in the selected countries, but also will refer these findings to the expectations of the employers in these countries.

The project will contribute to a better understanding among policymakers of the need for changes leading to greater consistency and overall simplification of tools in order to support the creation of a European area of skills and qualifications, where learners and workers can move freely, whether for work or further learning. The project will increase the cooperation between the world of education and training and the working environment. It will help vocational schools, education managers and methodical consultants to better prepare and implement European development plans.

WGB - Women Get Back

Project Number: 589785-EPP-1-2017-1-PT-EPPKA2-CBY-ACPALA

The Women Get Back (WGB) is a Capacity Building project within the framework of the European Commission’s Erasmus + Programme with project partners from Portugal, Romania,Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, Paraguay,Peru, Nicaragua, Argetntina and Brazil. The “European Year of Equal Opportunities for All”, held in 2007 and a European scale, reinforces the idea that it is necessary to combat the multiple discrimination, in particular and to promote equal opportunities.

In Europe, women returning to the labour market are a significant part of the labour force available. However, these women are often overlooked in statistics, especially when they are not registered as unemployed.

Statistics show that, on average, women have 40% less chances, comparing with man, to be offered them a position, which illustrates the difficulties that women face when returning to the labour market, including their exclusion from it. On the other side, in Latin America women’s efforts have been crucial for reducing extreme poverty in the region. In fact, many Latin American women are abandoning more traditional roles to engage in what was previously considered “men’s work.” Several women have undertaken initiatives to form small businesses to address and overcome the effects of violence in their lives and that of their families.

Unfortunately, in Latin America, prejudices and stereotypes from the past remain and cases of harassment or street violence against women continue. In addition, nearly 30 % of young women in Latin America become mothers before 20 years of age and the majority of them are socioeconomically underprivileged, which fosters the intergenerational reproduction of poverty, hinders women’s autonomy and their life projects, and underscores the need for sex education and reproductive health services to be made a public policy priority, according to a new report by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC, 2014) and often they have difficulties in gaining access to a profession.

STAYMOBIL

European Quality Assurance in Transnational VET Mobility through Socially Responsible Behaviour

Project No: 2017-1-UK01-KA202-036666

Project duration: 24 months

Transnational mobility has over the last decade become a household byword in VET policy discussions not only in EC context, but also at national and regional policy level. Nowadays, being increasingly employed as a pedagogical tool in formal and non-formal contexts, issues of quality in mobility become a pressing concern. Although considered quite important it is very difficult to pin down precisely what good quality in mobility actually means. Here comes the correlation between quality and quantity: the more is known about quality and how to achieve it, the more confident and effective organizations can be in their efforts to reach out and offer mobility experience as a meaningful opportunity for strengthening future employability and personal development.

STAYMOBIL project will result in raising the issue about common understanding of ‘quality through SR’, provision of high quality mobility and higher level of satisfaction from the experience, thereby sustained learning outcomes and increased number of mobility organizers and users, contributing to European internationalization of VET organizations in Erasmus+ Programme countries and creation of a genuine European labour market.

By learning you will Teach, by teaching you will learn

Project number: 2015-1-LV02-KA205-000609

The Project is directed to young people threatened with exclusion from the society. The participating countries divided the project into blocks and according to those, 1 week workshops are organised in each partner country (Turkey, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary and Latvia).

During the workshops young people have a chance to obtain new skills in the field of social entreprenuership, managament, enetreprenuership, social risks and leadership. During the training period, the particpants are mentored and evaluated. Every mobility gives them a chance to exchange ideas, look back at their achievements, collaborate with each other, introduce new and innovative solutions.

What is more, the objectives of the project also focus on the cultural aspect of the life. The young participants have the opportunity to learn and broaden their horizons as far as the culture and history of the partners countries are concerned.

The value of the project is that it is directed to young, passionate people, who see the neccesity to implement changes, take moderate risks and cooperate with each other. The additional positive aspect of those intercultural exchanges is the fact that the young people meet the chance of developing their language skills – they communicate in English and they have the chance to gain new language experience.

The partners which participate in the project are various. The consortium was formed from schools and NGOs, so it gives a better and clearer look on the needs of today’s teenagers. Because of this, the partners have a chance to get deeper in the needs of the younger generation and make observations from different angles and perspectives.
