Skills for Social Care
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The course for Health and Social Services at the "Vincenzo Capirola" Institute of Ghedi (Brescia, Lombardy), is characterised by the acquisition by the students of social skills and relational aptitudes; this project can provide them with the opportunity to expand these skills in their multicultural and international aspects.
The objectives of this project are: to improve the level of key skills through increased opportunities for learning mobility and strengthening cooperation between the world of education and work, promote the internationalization of education and promoting the modernization of the education system preventing early school leaving and considering the special needs of the weakest.
For a choice linked to the curriculum of the vocational course for social services in students study two European languages, 16 students will be sent to France and 16 to England, for a total of 32 participants for each year of project duration (in total 64 people in the period 2015 - 2017 will participate in the project), to foster learning and consolidation of Community language studied.
The professional field of reference of the project is thae one of the social services that require a radical overhaul in our country, both because the needs for care and assistance increase (because of the incrementation of poverty and of the aging of the population), and because there's the need to build and implement innovative but also sustainable quality services, integrated at system-level and "cheap", able to have a "value for cost" maximally efficient.
In this sense, the efficiency and organization of the English and French systems can be, for our students, a strong stimulus to innovation and to the overcoming of localism.
The French partners AFEC and Interechanges and the English partner Almond Vocational Link, with their extensive experience in organization and management of learning experiences for students in international mobility, are our ideal partners, also with a view to future development of European collaborations.
Participants will be accompanied by two tutors, in charge of caring all the aspects related ti students' accommodations and placements, and to answer any type of need, also those related to special educational needs.
The final evaluation of the project will be implemented by the teachers of the Capirola, Institute as well as the assessment of learning outcomes related to the specific technical skills of the healthcare sector, acquired by participants during the mobility period; the evaluation of soft skills, however, will be entrusted to Tempo Libero which will use an innovative tool that through a playful methodology (serious games) allows to achieve important results in terms of professional guidance.
