Treloar Trust - Learning Together
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 30 Nov 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project has been developed on the basis of a strong existing partnership between the coordinating and receiving organisation and following on from a number of successful EVS projects involving these organisations. The project consists of an 11-month EVS activity involving six participants, which will take place at Treloar Trust, Alton, UK. The project involves sending organisations from Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Slovakia and Spain. The Treloar Trust provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with disabilities. The aim of Treloar Trust is to prepare these young people for adult life, giving them the confidence and skills to achieve their full potential.This project provides a positive non-formal learning experience for the participants while providing added value to the work of the partner organisations, in particular the receiving organisation.The participants in this project will be actively involved in the daily work of the receiving organisation, supporting the young people in a wide range of activities according to their interests by providing encouragement, enthusiasm and practical support. The participant are motivated by what they can learn from the experience as well as what they are able to contribute and so there will be a focus on interaction between the participants and the students to develop a mutual learning experience. There are well-defined learning outcomes that it is expected that each of the participants will achieve. The organisation and their students are expected to benefit from the daily interaction, enthusiasm and motivation of the participants and in particular from the intercultural and European dimension that their presence will bring to the work of the organisations. This will be particular benefit to the students as they often have few opportunities to travel and experience other cultures. It is expected that this project will also promote the positive aspects of cultural diversity within a team and at an organisational level as well as promoting the mutual benefits that can be attained through young people's active citizenship. In addition, it is expected that this project will support the work of the organisations in developing a greater awareness of disability; this will be reflected in the learning of the participants, the partner organisations and wider society. It is expected that the tangible skills, knowledge and competences that the participants will gain through this project will not only be beneficial for their future careers but also broaden their horizons and open up further opportunities for them.
