The project "E-SUSY" intends to support significantly the acquisition of professionalism about the technical competences, pedagogical and social skills of the two identified targets: students and recent graduates in social and social health, providing additional knowledge needed to the enforceability of the daily work , the professional quality and the number of interventions that guide and support intentionally effective approaches in dealing with issues related to disadvantaged people, or at risk of marginalization and planning the team work also in view of transnational mobility. Transnational mobility, on the basis of European policies on lifelong learning, must become an integral part of VET programs to enable learners to achieve high levels of qualification, essential for a successful entry into the labor market, for the development and improvement of their career and to cope with the demands of companies of highly qualified personnel. In line with these objectives and European policies, through E-SUSY, the four sending schools - Institutes of Higher Education "Machiavelli" of Lucca, "Caselli" of Siena, "Luigi Di Savoia" of Rieti and "Pertini" of Campobasso - and the National Consortium as a whole, led by SO&CO Consortium of Social Cooperatives Lucca, aim to improve the quality of VET, giving a European dimension to the educational paths and thus providing the young participants the opportunity to verify and deepen their curriculum: professionalism in the social and social health sectors, cultural knowledge and language training. This general objective, in line with the Strategy ET2020, is pursued by a mobility experience for the students of the fourth year and for the recent graduates of the four sending VET Schools and that consists of an internship of 4 weeks, in the first case, and 2 months in the second one. The training programme includes an internship in selected companies in the social and social health, to acquire knowledge and skills within the sectors and compare the various professional techniques, and activities aimed at the inclusion and integration in the context and for the improvement of language skills and to better know the culture of the hosting country.
The main expected results from the project include: the rise of the personal and professional skills of the participants; the promotion of key competences connected with the exercise of real active citizenship; increasing the employment potential of the participants; the introduction of new training methods to complement existing practices and the improvement of the educational level of technical and vocational schools; the development of relations between the transnational partners and the promotion of processes of cooperation and exchange of good practice between the parties involved, with a significant impact on improving the educational and vocational guidance. The construction of a permanent network of transnational nature of public organisations and not only constitutes, therefore, one of the main objectives of the project and allows the exchange of experience and good practices at different levels (technical excellence, best practices in training policies and governance of the system). The Consortium, with this proposal, therefore, aims to give momentum to the internationalization of institutional relations and cooperation at European level. The opportunities for social and economic growth can not be separated from the desire to create strong interdependence and synergy between education and vocational training institutions and strong partnerships with local and foreign business realities. The project is, besides, implemented in an European context considering the European priority and thematic approached such as "ECVET for transparency and recognition of learning outcomes and qualifications" and contributes, in particular, to create a European area for lifelong learning in the social and social health sector. The whole activities are implemented by regarding a strong European perspective which is reflected in all project activities and results. So, the project aims to increase the knowledge of ECVET and its technical specifications and ensuring that the added value of ECVET is understood and perceived all over Europe.
