Start date: Sep 1, 2014,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
The strategic partnership of this project consists of Slovenian public adult educational organization - Ljudska univerza Nova Gorica, Italian social cooperative- Cooperativa Orso, French NGO - Association pour le Développement des Initiatives Citoyennes et Européennes, Croatian public adult educational organization- Pučko otvoreno učilište Zagreb and Turkish NGO educational/cultural association - Mozaik Kultur Egitim Genclik ve Doga Dernegi, with the common aims and similar development strategies.
The most relevant priorities adressed by the project are: contribution to a reduction in number of low-skilled women immigrants and facilitation of the validation of non-formal and informal learning by fostering the assesment of key-competencies, including basic skills and transversal skills (particulary entrepreneurship, languages and digital skills).
With that purpose there are different target groups addresed in project activities: women legal immigrants third country nationals as one of most vulnerable groups in EU area, the proffesional staff from partner organizations (trainers) with the aim to upgrade their pedagogical and management skills and some of the key stakeholders (employers, institutions with the direct connection to main target group) for developing the effective connections between education and the labour market.
And so the main objective of the project named `I AM AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF MULTINATIONAL SOCIETY` (IamMS) is to promote the social integration of women who are legal immigrant third country nationals, with special intention to integrate them into the labour market. The project also wants to develop the intercultural dialogue between the mentioned target group and other EU citizens. All this can be achieved by developing and upgrading the model of good practice of Slovenian partner Ljudska univerza Nova Gorica with the process of identification and validation of non-formal and informal learning and some other innovative elements. To achieve these aims 2 connected intellectual outputs will be prepared: (1) Methodology and guidelines for implementation of train the trainers programme (2) Curriculum and recommendations of the programme for promoting social integration and development of intercultural dialogue with women third country nationals (stressing their integration into labour market). To develop those intellectual outputs several activities will be implemented, such as 1 short-term staff training programme and pilot implementations of the new programme for immigrant women. 15 future trainers will participate in the staff training programme which will be implemented in Slovenia. Pilot implementations of the new programme will be implemented in all project partners countries, so there will be 5 implementations with inclusion of at least 75 women third country nationals and at least 20 employers who will offer them the work training/ rehabilitation. At least 5 cultural mediators will participate in all programme implementations. This activity will offer the main target group possibilities of integration in new environment by respecting their specifics and needs. There will also be 5 final multiplier events.
The project wants to raise employability of women in Europe in the age between 20-64, especially among those with fewer opportunities by improving the level of their key competencies and skills and thus making them more compatible to the needs of the labour market and society in general. The project will enable disadvantaged groups to take part in lifelong learning programmes, career guidance and counselling. The project follows the main objectives of main European priorities listed in different strategic documents, such as European strategy 2020, EU Education and training strategy 2020, European platform against poverty and social exclusion, Erasmus+ programme, European Qualification Framework for LLL, European agenda for adult learning, PIAAC, The Treaty of EU etc.
The project will increase the educational offer by providing a new programme for social integration process of disadvantaged groups on local, regional, national, EU and international level. This is especially important for Turkey as a new EU candidate country.
