SymfoS -
Symbols for Success


 

SymfoS - Symbols for Success project promotes an innovative education and career guidance method addressed to young disadvantaged people based on sets of symbols.  

 

Very often the traditional counselling methods are aimed at young people who have advanced writing and reading skills and are already supported by a strong social system. These kinds of interventions can be ineffective with young people who, for various reasons, find difficulties in expressing in words their situation, their needs and their goals for the future. Working with symbols is an opportunity for them to use a universal language to do it.

 

 

What are SymfoS aims? On one hand, SymfoS aims to support young people who encounter difficulties in finding their own pathway within the education system and labour market to set their own goals for their future. On the other hand aims to provide educational guidance and professional operators a holistic method that improves the overall quality of counselling.

Project duration

September 2016 till February 2019

logo viperVIPER - Volunteers in Playwork


 The aim of Viper is to transfer a volunteer training course to improve the quality and reach of vocational education and training for adults thinking about working with children. Through collaboration the Consortium will incorporate EU best practice to support children’s play across Europe and transfer this training programme and volunteering model to become an EU recognised training course.

 

The envisaged impact is the unique provision of an accredited EU training resource which will result in a more competent, knowledgeable, better trained, and coordinated volunteer play workforce across Europe, and increased levels of active citizenship and volunteering.

 

The Consortium consists of HEIs involved in vocational education and training design and delivery, organisations with sector experience and SMEs. Partners are involved through a common desire to have a resource they can use, which complements their existing VET related services.

 

 

Results:

  • To adapt, develop and blend a play training course for volunteers which aims to support learners in gaining skills to improve their chances of employment through the acquisition of social and civic competences.
  • To support training providers and organizations with the resources and training to deliver ‘Volunteers in Play – a route to employment’ (level 2) course
  • To support learners to access volunteering opportunities within the childcare and out of school childcare sector, further to undertaking the ‘Volunteer in Play’ course.

logo 2inno2inno - Do innovation now!


Innovation is frequently marketed as a driver of growth for the whole economy as well as the key issue for enterprises seeking to enhance their competitiveness. But why is it often so difficult for a business to successfully put innovation in to practice?

 

 

 

The principal reason is that it´s always a risk finding the right ideas, developing them into products and services before attempting a success launch into the market. If you run a small or medium sized business, you know that you must constantly renew but you do not always have the resources, the know-how or the willingness to take this risk.

 

2inno.eu has been developed to address this problem. The programme has been designed for the owner/manager or management teams of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and enables even the smallest businesses to introduce and implement practical innovation processes. The 2inno methodology – outlined below – has been jointly developed by 6 project partner institutions across Europe:-

A business that participates in the 2Inno programme will be assigned their own dedicated 2Inno coach. The business will participate in two inital ‘Innovation Audit‘ workshops at which an in-depth review of its competitiveness will be completed to determine how well positioned it is to respond to marketplace challenges and to develop appropriate solutions.

 


Following these workhops, innovative transfer projects will be defined, implemented and monitored. Short training modules will be delivered to key management personnel throughout the process. This provides the basis for the creation of an innovation strategy that will help build a long-term competitive advantage for the business.

 

Project Features

  • Multilingual innovation web-platform:
  • Toolbox ‘2inno innovation tools’
  • Training sessions in ‘Innovation Management‘

logo codecCoDeC - Colonisation and Decolonisation in National History Culture


 The project CoDec (Colonisation and Decolonisation in National History Cultures and Memory Politics in European Perspective) deals with several important research issues and approaches towards history cultures and memory politics in Europe:

 

 

  • studying the reappraisal of the colonial past and processes of decolonisation in different European states in a comparative perspective and in cooperation with the European project partners
  • studying the way of teaching the topic in the partner states in history education and the question of the impact and importance of colonial pasts on history cultures and memory politics today
  • discussing in how far national memory cultures of colonialism and decolonisation can be implemented into a collective European frame, in the context of the idea that the colonial past is a connecting as well as a dividing moment in European history.

 

Phases and projects of de-centralisation in history education and widening historic views beyond national constraints enable students to become aware of cultural diversity and to recognise and estimate it accordingly. In the encounter with other times and historically different worlds there is the chance of looking at the own history with a new awareness and to respect the other as a legitimate variant. In general, a closer cooperation between science and didactics is highly important.

 

 

Results:

 

  • Teaching modules, published in print and in digital versions, incl. introductions and lesson plans plus new sources, translated into English, German and French 
  • Innovative conference as a means of further teacher training, which will be attended by participants from all stages of teacher education
