Imprenditoria e REsponsabilità Sociale
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Consortium, recently built, comes from a network of schools spread across 4 Venetian provinces seeking benefits from opportunities for mobility and cooperation offered by the Erasmus + in favor of VET learners (business and economic profiles) and staff. Schools aim to work on an international dimension of their activities and training offer. The goal from the point of view of the issue is spreading among young people the importance of CSR as a tool to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The Veneto Region since 2006 launched ad hoc initiatives to encourage the spread of this new concept of entrepreneurship. Companies more careful to the challenges of the future have already recognised the validity of the 'triple bottom line'model’ (which notes the impact of corporate behavior on the economic, social and environmental level). The school in its process of opening up to Europe and the world cannot help but wonder about the relationship between CSR and globalization, making itself interpreter of a sustainable internationalization. The beneficiaries of the biennial mobility project are: a) 120 VET students of economic, commercial and marketing area; 10 staff members. The learners mobility will last five weeks, and wants to develop a moment of pedagogical training which increase personal capacity and skills, such as language civic and social competences, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, digital competence, cultural awareness and expression. IRES will promote the increase of organizational, managerial and operational skills/competences, starting from the assumption that SMEs are placed in an increasingly competitive global scenario. The internship will be placed within the educational curriculum, on the basis of a training agreement. The experience will use the methodologies ECVET. The selected host countries are: Germany, France, Spain, the United Kingdom and Ireland. They have been carefully chosen not only considering the foreign languages studied in the schools, but taking into account the different economic history of each one and then the different way of implementation of CSR. The foreign partners are established reality in the field of training, expert about design, management, implementation of European projects in relation to staff and learners training, and to vocational training in the company of students and graduates. As for staff mobility, emphasis was placed to seek partners already active in the ErasmusPlus field and particularly reliable. They are able not only to strengthen the language skills but offer job shadowing experiences that allow a) the transfer of best practices in use in partner countries schools; b) the strengthening of cooperation with local and transnational bodies involved in the partnership network. The impact on learners will be the development of professional, personal and international skills and competences as tools to facilitate integration into the labor market and the reading enterprises’ needs. In this light, the training will be built in such a way as to allow the recognition of alternation, and certification awarded enrich personal portfolio. The expected impact on the partners of the Consortium / Network (both local and international) will be in the primarily the willingness to participate in further editions and similar initiatives. Moreover, thanks to their direct participation in specific phases of the project, this will be a moments of quality improvement about non-formal training offered by their organizations. In this framework the Consortium is born from the assumption of multidisciplinary and integrated CSR nature, so it is necessary to proceed with a synergic action among educational, sectorial and territorial institutions. A key role naturally will have businesses (Pinze Schio, Rigoni di Asiago, FORTES Social Enterprise) but also stakeholders (trade associations, chambers of commerce), that through active involvement and partnership with multi-stakeholder approach, can encourage the process which IRES aims.
