EUAwareness

Implementation period: 01.10.2018 – 31.12.2019
Project number: 601453-CITIZ-1-2018-1-ES-CITIZ-CIV

Project description: 

Euroscepticism is a complex reality, ranging from economic to cultural issues, characterised by various levels of intensity. The phenomenon is fuelled by entities and media across Europe that contribute to creating misinformation. Typical examples are “that the EU consist only of unelected bureaucrats”. The problem is apparently a lack of understanding of how the EU works and a need of critical thinking.

The EUAwareness project aims to identify through a survey the more common euro myths of each region involved, debunk them, open up debate for all those ideas without any prejudice and finally show the EU mechanism available to get involved in Europe’s policymaking.

The project pursues four objectives:

  • To understand from the target group itself the most common misconceptions that are currently underlying Euroscepticism.
  • To develop innovative activities that provide factual information regarding the identified misconceptions.
  • To create and activate local debates around these issues and the future of Europe, which will assure long-term viability to this initiative.
  • Show to EU citizens the tools available to shape the future of the EU they want.

As to comply with these objectives, the partnership is planning to develop a transnational survey to identify and compare misconceptions, a tailor-made international communication campaign, 30 debates and 30 webinars.

Handson – Hands-on approaches to support learners with special educational needs to complete VET cycles and transit into the labour market

Implementation period: 01.10.2018 – 30.09.2020
Assistance program: ERASMUS+
Project number: 2018-1-UK01-KA202-048117

Project description: 

In Europe, recent estimates place the number of learners with special educational needs (SEN) at 15 million. Learners with SEN frequently leave school with few qualifications and are much more likely to become unemployed or economically inactive. The European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education (2013) formulated recommendations relating to the four “patterns of successful practice” that are likely to improve VET system effectiveness and the transition to employment of learners with SEN.

HANDSON aims to develop an inclusive production-based learning model and innovative didactic resources to support SEN learners to complete VET cycles and successfully transit into the labour market.

HANDSON will provides a set of tangible products for better support VET managers, educators, SEN learners and employers: a tailored inclusive production-based learning model, and supportive didactic resources – eManual, eKit, digital learning space and app generator.

Project number: 2018-1-UK01-KA202-047939

Project description:

This project aims to help young disadvantaged job seekers to get selected and perform better during job interviews and thereby increase their chances of entering the labour market.

This project proposal is the follow up project and complimentary to the 2014-2016 ET-NEETs (Effective Training for NEETS) Erasmus+ project which collected a large amount of data from NEETs, including the information that amongst other reasons, 73% described problems with job interviews as a major obstacle of getting into employment.
The project therefore addresses as it’s main target groups:

  • Young disadvantaged job seekers (16 to 24 years old) with little or no work experience, qualifications or training (including NEETs),
  • Employers, recruitment agencies and job centres,
  • VET institutions.

The project will develop two main outputs constituting a set of training tools:

  • The Interview Champ APP: it will be designed to interactively coach job seekers to better present themselves, their skills and character to potential employers. It will offer a participative training course that will present a range of example interview questions and answers and interview techniques (in video) on how to better perform during the job interview.
    The APP will also have the unique facility for the user to create a short high quality ‘Living Video CV’ of themselves that can be uploaded onto the projects Job Portal for potential employers to view the individual in a more representative and comprehensive way.
  • The Job Portal: it will be part of the projects website and allow uploads of Living CV videos created by the job seekers for potential employers to view in order to aid the pre-interview selection process of potential candidates.
    During the term of the project, selected employers will be invited to view and respond in a critical way to the video CVs’ that have been produced. This response will provide important feedback and tips for the job seekers to improve their presentation skills before the next face to face job interview. The Portal will also be used as a place to find employment.

Environmental Learning Illustrated

Implementation period: 01.10.2017 – 30.09.2019
Assistance program: ERASMUS+
Project number: 2017-1-UK01-KA204-036748

Project description:

The project ELI is linked with the European Union’s commitment “Healthy and Sustainable Environment for Present and Future Generations” (European Commission paper, 2014) and an international commitment to protecting natural habitats and biodiversity, but also tackling other environmental problems, including the reduction in carbon emission as reflected in the so-called 2015 Paris Agreement, with the need to develop comprehensive education programmes that address the mentioned needs.

Partnership will create an e-learning programme on climate change and other environmental problems with illustrations and graphic designs to explain key concepts and activities of the e-learning programme, so to increase the learning success of the participants, as well as reach out to more people who do not necessarily have a scientific background in the explained topics. By adding a graphic novel to the programme, partners target to interest a larger audience, apart from those formally taking the course. The novel will be available for free download on the project platform. We hope that a lighter read on environmental issues will encourage more people to become interested in the project. It will include recommended actions on environmental topics and advice what influence humans have on the environment.
