The Job Bridge project has come to an end. We are glad to announce that we have been able to achieve the aspired result. Here is what we did, in a nutshell:
As part of the Job Bridge project, facilitators of learning initiatives for young people participated in an extensive training course in Göttingen in February 2020, with the view to then carry out the so-called pilot learning projects involving at least 15 volunteers per partner country. The aim was to implement the methodologies developed in the earlier stages of the Job Bridge project and at the end of the pilot phase, the objective was to validate the competences acquired by both the facilitators and volunteers during the training and pilot projects, including utilising the innovative LEVEL5 methodology.

The I-Care consortium developed a set of actions sheets aimed to provide practical tips to overcome tricky situations in the social and healthcare situation in intercultural settings. Based on the many interviews carried out during the research phase the partnership identified twelve intercultural situations that can lead to misunderstandings or problems and affect interactions between staff and their clients or patients. Thematically, these include: language barriers, dealing with conflicts, the role of the family, stereotypes, dealing with pain and illness, conflicting values, etc.
The action sheets briefly describe the issue, illustrated by a real-life example, and give options that staff can take to deal with the situation. The action sheets are available in all partner languages incl. English and German. Find an example here. All actions sheets will be tested in the piloting phase in autumn 2021.

Effective and revitalising approaches to career management to support longer working lives
We are looking forward to sharing with you our findings and tools and discuss with you in various formats about relevant topics related to ‘working on’.
The compilation with myhts, stereotypes and success stories has been finalised. It is quite huge. We hope that you will be surprised by some of the things you read and that maybe one or two myths will disappear from your minds. We are well aware that not everything is great in the EU – but it is much better than some always postulate and there are some wonderful success stories.

We are literally being swept away by a wave of fake news – how can we deal with it?
The project consortium of the No Alternative Fact project has found answers to this question. Join us and find out! More details will be published very soon.
The I-Care partners have completed their situation analysis in terms of identifying intercultural competences needed in the social and health sector, the difficulties faced by social and health workers in dealing with cultural diversity, and the main learning areas related to working in a multicultural environment in the partner countries.
The 40-page report was visualised in an infographic summarising the main findings. Here you can find the Infographic in English and German.

Cooperation with the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule Göttingen and the local radio station to raise pupils’ awareness of fake news with the aim of producing a podcast on the subject
Since mid-September, there has been a weekly workshop for interested pupils at the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule on the topic of Fake News. The pupils explore the topic together and develop a podcast for the Stadtradio Göttingen. The afternoon lessons are organised by two members of the No Alternative Facts project team on the basis of the course organised in February. The activities are accompanied by a media educator from Stadtradion, who is then also responsible for the technical implementation later on.
The podcast is expected to go on air early 2021.
