Job Bridge – Final Conference

The Job Bridge consortium is organising its final conference in cooperation with the REVEAL community. Their annual conference will take place on 10./11.12.2020.

The Job Bridge closing conference would have taken place in Brussels in early November. Now with all the restrictions, there is no physical meeting at all. Since there are many different events, we are happy to team up with REVEAL.

The main focus of the conference will be on creativity, innovation and digitalisation at the interface between education, volunteering and business,

I-CARE – 80 Interviews with representatives of the third sector

In the last few months the project partners of the I-CARE project interviewed almost 80 professionals from the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy and Greece. The purpose of these interviews was to find answers, among others, to the following qustions:

  • Which intercultural competences are needed in the social and healthcare sector today?
  • What kind of difficulties of social and healthcare workers face daily when dealing with cultural diversity amongst patients?
  • What are the most important areas to learn about in terms of working in a multicultural environment?

The I-CARE project wants to address these important questions, and the first step to gaining a better understand of the context is to listen to the people directly involved.
This precious group of interviewees included people of all ages (from 24 to 71 years old), mainly females, operating with vulnerable groups/migrant populations in the social and healthcare sector: nurses, caregivers, medical assistants, adult care social workers, occupational therapists, social pedagogues, educators, psychologists, teachers and counsellors in care educations, volunteers, home helpers, managers of nursing homes and many more.
A great effort, during the COVID-19 pandemic and its containment measures, that has given important results and information to the project staff to proceed with their work on the next actions!

MEGA – What the EU does for its citizens

The research phase carried out in the framework of the MEGA project has brought some interesting things to light – on the one hand the partners have found some really incredible myths about the EU, but on the other hand they have also found things that the EU does for its citizens that they were not aware of to this extent.
Before the MEGA report with myths and success stories is published – it will be designed over the summer months – you can see at a glance what the EU is doing for its citizens here.

Data Literacy – Survey

Datalit – A joint research project to spread Data Literacy at the interface of higher education and business

At present, the project consortium is investigating what a data literate person should know and be able to do, not only as an employee, but also as an active citizen.
For this purpose, the partners have set up a survey to collect different type of experience with Data Literacy as an approach that improves the competences of employees, students or trainees. The questionnaire addresses teachers, trainers, learning facilitators in various educational fields as well as representatives of enterprises, NGOs, public entities etc.

The short questionnaire will only take 10 minutes of your time and your participation is completely anonymous.

Webinars – Valuing competences in volunteering

Our JOB BRIDGE project is heavily affected by the corona crisis. Normally, all partners would currently carry out pilot projects to implement the JOB BRIDGE approach to validate the competences acquired in volunteering. Most of our planned pilot projects had to be suspended. And of course, we are not the only ones affected!

How do volunteers cope with the COVID crisis? What do they learn in volunteering? How to value the competences that they acquire?

Find the answers by registering* to three Webinars organised by our Belgian project partner LLLPlatform!

*Registrations are compulsory in order to get the Zoom link.

During the webinar on 16th June an input on the effects for the JOB BRIDGE project will be given.

Myths and stereotypes about the EU

Currently, the partners of the MEGA project are collecting myths and stereotypes about the European Union. The EU is often blamed for things for which it is not even responsible. As European Union constantly faces different manifestations of Europhobia, unmasking EU myths becomes ever more important to keep the EU united. Media – and specifically social media – play a major role as an opinion-maker and the carrier of EU myth information to a broader audience.

SASSI – Impact of the pandemic on learning projects

The planned learning projects – so beautifully planned in Matosinhos – have been massively affected by the current situation. Everything started well. The team of BUPNET and blinc came back full of enthusiasm and started to concretise things. First steps were successfully taken: A coaching guideline based on the SASSI concept was developed, mobility as a means of further training was explored and first plans were made – actually a team training abroad was planned for June, then postponed to September and then cancelled completely for this year … . The plans for Job Shadowing have also been put on hold. Unfortunately, travelling is just not safe these days. But we hope that next year we can catch up on our plans for European mobility!

If you are also interested in planning European mobility, please visit our SASSI Hub, where we have prepared a wealth of information on this topic.
