2020-1-RO01-KA202-080384 – “More Opportunities Less Differences”

 The main goal of the project MORE OPPORTUNITIES LESS DIFFERENCES is to create conditions for better involvement of students with fewer opportunities in mobility experiences and raise awareness on the challenges faced by the European community in organizing inclusive mobilities.

The project sets the following specific objectives:

  1. to reach out to students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges and encourage their involvement in mobilities;
  2. to deliver tools for sending and intermediary VET organizations that will ensure quality in mobilities and will facilitate the inclusion of students with fewer opportunities;
  3. to equip mentors in SMEs hosting mobilities with an adequate tool to monitor the mobility experience of VET students with fewer opportunities.

The target groups of the project are:

  • Sending and intermediary VET organizations managing mobilities;
  • VET schools sending/receiving mobilities;
  • SMEs providing work placements for mobility participants;
  • VET students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges;
  • VET professionals taking part in mobility projects.

The project stipulates the delivery of 4 Intellectual Outputs each aiming to support a particular interested party of those involved in organizing VET mobilities:

  1. IO1 Quality Assurance Framework for sending VET organizations: the output will present a number of indicators and quality criteria that will serve as a reference point for sending VET organizations to organize and manage safe and high-quality mobility experience for students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges.
  2. IO2 Self-assessment tool: the tool will step on the quality assurance framework and will serve as an online self-diagnostic instrument that will help sending VET organizations to identify areas for improvement as regards their work with students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges. It will enable them to make a change by specific recommendations resulting from their score from self-assessment.
  3. IO3 Handbook for mentors in SMEs hosting mobilities: the handbook will deliver tips and practical advice on particular situations that may occur when hosting mobilities with students with fewer opportunities. It will serve as a tool to prepare mentors in SMEs hosting mobilities to organize better mobility experience for students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges and guarantee that they are adequately involved in work placement tasks and social activities.
  4. IO4 Board game for students: the board game will be the tool to reach out to students facing social obstacles, economic difficulties and educational challenges in a non-threatening manner and, through a game, both prepare and educate them on what a mobility abroad looks like. The players of the game will encounter different situations and obstacles and will “live” a period abroad including work placement, life in a different cultural environment, interaction with employers and fellow students. Thus, the students will be better prepared and build confidence that they will cope with the challenges occurring from a mobility.
