Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership for VET - VET4Start-Up

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.

Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership for VET - App.T

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.

A workshop enabling participants to raise their awareness of the link between literacy and social inclusion across Europe, and the benefits of promoting a literate society.

Leonardo Partnership - PLAS

The goal of the project is to come up with a series of suggestions for raising the quality, popularity and awareness of retrainings, lifelong learning and further professional education among the employees aged over 50. This objective will be achieved through the exchange of experience and know-how among the project partners by mutual visits and web-based meetings.

Grundtvig Learner Workshop - Move to the Beat!

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.

Grundtvig Learner Workshop - European Treasure Hunt: Discovering cultural heritage through arts and crafts

This workshop provided a full week of interactive education on arts and crafts as a vehicle for discovering and sharing cultural heritage.

LiMe - Languages in Media

Project Details

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.
