The project aims to develop an attractive interactive game-based learning strategy and accompanying resources to support trainers and educators working with disadvantaged young adults, in order to increase their capacity, competency and the resources available to them to promote healthier lifestyles and wider well-being.
To find out which health topics are of particular interest and should thus be considered in the development of the game, all Health Points partners consulted both trainers and young people to ask them about their perceptions and interests. Continue reading
Für meine Arbeit in den EU-Projekten wollte ich unbedingt meine Englischkenntnisse aufbessern, und was liegt näher, als dies in England zu tun? Da kam mir die Möglichkeit gerade Recht, im Rahmen von Projekt INTENT ein dreiwöchiges Job Shadowing bei unserer Partnerorganisation Community Action Dacorum (CAD) in Hemel Hempstead zu machen.
The 2-year project Health Points funded under Erasmus+ was officially launched in the premises of the coordinator Rinova on the 30th and 31st January in London.
Health Points intends to develop a new, game-based resource to promote health and well-being for tutors and trainers who are working in a variety of educational contexts with young adults.There is a crucial need to improve health literacy among young adults, especially those who are from disadvantaged contexts. Much ill-health in adulthood has its roots in earlier life, and conditions such as diabetes and obesity can impact negatively on employability as well as life prospects more widely. Continue reading
The COME IN team has launched a transnational research and interviews with employers and experts exploring their attitudes towards employment and work integration of refugees and learning more about their training needs.
You can contribute to our research responding to the online questionnaire which is available in six language versions. Please access the Online Survey here.
In December 2017, project partners met for the first time at the kick-off meeting in Vienna where they planned the upcoming research and debated the needs of stakeholders in the European labour markets. In the first months of 2018, COME IN partners will conduct the transnational research and interviews with employers and experts exploring their attitudes toward employment and work integration of refugees and learning more about their training needs.

On November 8. and 9. the BADGES consortium met for the first time in Kassel.
BADGES sets out to develop a learning and validation approach for cultural and heritage sites that leads to the award of digital badges to visitors who participate in specific learning activities offered by the sites.
The consortium unites heritage sites and public institutions who wish to make additional offers to their visitors, public relations agencies and learning concept developers specialised in validation of non-formal and informal learning (VINFL).
The LISTEN survey focused on assessing the status storytelling has among adult educators. It asked for interests and experiences with storytelling applied in educational contexts and expored the learning needs of the target groups addressed.
Another topic we asked for was in how far the idea to use radio as medium to give refugees a voice is perceived suitable and attractive to be applied with refugees.
The results show that storytelling is far more wide spread as method of education than one would initially think. Also there is great appreciation and motivation of educators to learn more about the LISTEN approach.
A summary of the results can be viewed here: LISTEN_summary survey results.
On 31.08.17 the Landkreis Kassel invited representatives of regional enterprises for an after-work event, where the REST idea was presented and discussed. The CEO of on regional enterprise gave an interesting insight on how he succeeded in overcoming initital challenges such as language problems, legal issues and fear. He underlined that one needs some additional time and patience at the beginning of the process but that it can be very rewarding to give a refugee the chance to work in an enterprise.
It’s time for an update.
EYE stands for “Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs”, a European funded exchange programme for entrepreneurs.
In order to support entrepreneurial diversity and synergy in Europe the European Commission funds exchanges between entrepreneurs.
New entrepreneurs (NE) have the opportunity to work over a period of 1 month up to 6 months with an experienced host entrepreneur (HE) in another European country. Both parts benefit of the exchange discussing their business ideas, sharing best practice examples and contacts. In a nutshell: They get a fantastic chance to learn from each other.
