Kick off meeting of the DECENT project in Romania

The main goal of the DECENT project is to increase the effectiveness of the fight against the functional illiteracy among low qualified adults who are at risk of social exclusion in Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Spain and Italy

The aim will be achieved through:

  • development of course “Decent life without illiteracy”
  • development of eTool for fighting with functional illiteracy

Partners discussed these objectives, expectations and deliverables of the project. In particular, partners reviewed the plan for developing the content of the course, as well as the activity for developing the content for the eTool.

We are looking forward to a very successful project.

DECENT 1st workshop with stakeholders

In the frames of the DECENT project, CARDET conducted a workshop with 14 stakeholders, who discussed and provided feedback for the project’s questionnaire, which will be distributed in the next few months. The participants were representatives of adult education centers, schools, educational departments in local and regional government, as well as adult educators.

This first workshop was informative and introduced the idea of the project and the planned activities. The stakeholders went through the questionnaires and commented on the quality of the questions, as well as to the type of data that will be collected. Overall, the questionnaire is well crafted and partners need to do some polishes before the questionnaire is distributed to the beneficiaries to participate in the research.

This is considered to be the first step to overcoming the barriers of resentment and shame and helping those with functional literacy.

Stay tuned for updated and further news.

2nd Drop-in Project Meeting in Nicosia, Cyprus

The Drop-in project’s main objective is to enhance the basic and transversal skills and competences of young people, who have dropped out of the formal education system, (re)introducing them in informal and non-formal learning, based on an innovative, tailor-made capacity-building model, with the aim to ultimately facilitate their socio-economic (re)integration and employability.

The consortium of partners had an extensive discussion on the “Needs Identification and Analysis”, which indicated the needs of ESLs in all the participating countries and revealed that there is a lack of flexibility and social skills, as well as literacy and numeracy skills, in relation to the Early School Leavers (ESLs). Partners also discussed about the modules that are currently developing in order to develop and make available a holistic e-learning and networking platform, which will correspond to the needs of young drop-outs and ESLs. This platform will ultimately provide them with a better chance of finding a job or in case they are already employed, to have a chance of finding something better. Furthermore, there was a fruitful discussion on the gamification elements that will be incorporated in the platform to successfully engage ESLs into learning opportunities and offer them a positive learning experience. The next steps of the project are currently to finalise the modules and create the gamified e-learning platform in order to start piloting and implementing the educational materials.

The next project meeting of the Drop-in project will take place in Greece during February 2019. In addition, partners will have the opportunity to attend the first Drop-in International Conference, which will take place during the same period in Greece.
