SASSI Working On – Situation on career guidance for 50+

Each partner carried out national research in order to identify current practice in terms of providing career guidance and career management for 50+ employees.
Research shows that in the partner countries there are no specific advisory or counselling programmes for older people. This means that this group uses the systems that are generally available for adults of all age groups. In contrast, most countries have put in place policies wich aim to support longer working lives.
The importance of the increasing retirement age does not go unnoticed. Companies that do not yet perceive this issue as important undoubtedly will in the near future.

PRACTICE – Kick-off Meeting

The PRACTICE project – Preventing Radicalism through Critical Thinking Competences aims to develop EU-wide continuing professional development (CPD) programme for teachers focussing on promotion of social, civic and intercultural competences and critical thinking of secondary school students.

PRACTICE addresses current challenges and needs of preventing radicalisation in school and of supporting opportunities for teachers’ continuing professional development (CPD) in this area, by developing, testing and disseminating an innovative approach, using participatory methods collaborative process, that involve 7 partner organisations and 35 schools at local, national and EU level.

On the 22-23 November 2018 the partnership meet for the first time in Palermo, Italy and set up the first steps for a comprehensive comparative research report.

No Alternative Facts – First steps

On 20./21.11.2018 the partner consortium of the No alternative Facts project met in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the two-day kick-off meeting. The project aimed to create common ground in terms of envisaged outcomes, future activities and ways to approach our target groups.

First steps: The partners will start with conducting comprehensive research activities in order to get an overview of the current state of affairs in the partner countrues as a basis for developing a state-of-the-art interactive learning environment aimed to support educators in increasing their competences and resources to promote media literacy, and critical thinking amongst disadvantaged young adults. The research activities will include desk research, focus groups and interviews and an large online survey.

No Alternative Facts – New project starts now

The EU-Team is excited about the start of a new 2-year project tackling intentional misinformation in digital technologies through critical thinking skills and media literacy.

Young people today are growing up in a globalised world and are processing information from a wider variety of sources than ever before. They need the critical literacy skills to navigate the potential pitfalls when consuming news, particularly when using online sources and social media. Media literacy is crucial for sustaining democracy by knowing which information sources to trust and which media are trustworthy.

This is where the project comes in – we want to develop tools to support trainers and tutors working with (disadvantaged) young adults, in order to increase their media literacy, critical thinking and digital competences with the aim to raise their awareness of the phenomenon and to prepare them to take more activiely part in decision making processes and, last but not least, in a democracy.

SASSI – Working on – Kick-off meeting

On 20./21. September 2018  the SASSI consortium met in Loughborough, UK, for the first partner meeting. The meeting aimed to set the ground for the future project develoment works. As SASSI – Working on is a follow-up project of the SASSI project the purpose of this meeting was also to analyse the elements that can be built on and those that will have to be developed anew.
SASSI-Working on aims at exploiting the innovation expressed in the previous project in terms of age-sensitive training to create innovative later career guidance methodologies.

As a first step the partners agreed to review the National and Comparative Needs Analysis Reports produced in the SASSI project, and to undertake targeted research to gain a more detailed understanding of the situation for Career Guidance/Career Management for older people in each country. Also it seems necessary to gather data on approaches and programmes that are put in place in the partner countries in order to find ways for coping with the increasing retirement age, as this is no longer something which can be ignored.

SASSI-Working On

We are pleased to announce that the follow-up project of the project SASSI was approved by the National Agency in UK.

SASSI-Working On will exploit and further develop the products develped in the previous project in terms of age-sensitive training to create innovative later career guidance methodologies. It intends to extend and enhance the access to age-sensitive careers advice, skills updating and work experience opportunities for older workers, and develop innovative approaches to guidance for older workers and job seekers.

The approach on promoting and validating the competences of C-VET providers, trainers, HR professionals and line managers in providing age-sensitive approaches to career management/advice initiated in SASSI will be further customised and applied.
