In the field of Vocational Education and Training (VET), previous projects have identified a lack of anticipation of skill requirements and formative routes for new entrepreneurs. VET4Start-Up seeks to address this problem through a European strategic partnership that will encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship.
App.T aims to create an app to support target groups who are likely to be less attractive to employers in the current EU economy and therefore be unemployed, and their trainers. It will contain interactive training content which focuses on developing business start-up skills based on the principles of social enterprise. Users will develop soft skills and work preparation skills to ultimately increase their employability and access to the labour market.
This workshop provided a fascinating insight into contemporary and classical music in the UK and an opportunity to explore the influence that other cultures and backgrounds have upon both modern and historical musical tastes. Current musical preferences and patterns in the UK have been widely influenced by African, Asian and American music. This workshop looked at musical influences throughout the ages and how ‘traditional’ song and dance has become increasingly multicultural due to the globalisation of the music industry.
This workshop provided a full week of interactive education on arts and crafts as a vehicle for discovering and sharing cultural heritage. In particular, it provided a fascinating insight into the cultural heritage of the West Midlands and presented a wonderful opportunity to explore and reflect upon the culture and history of all participants.

This project uses media to tackle teaching and learning of languages and culture. It stems from a shared understanding that in order to fully integrate, migrants must feel part of the community in which they live. LiMe will help migrants to develop language and cultural competences by providing them with tools to decode the language and culture portrayed in the multimedia environment around them.
