Currently, all partners are implementing a learning project related to any of the course topics to apply in practice the newly aquired knowledge … and maybe to bring about change in the corporate culture.
Currently, in BUPNET we look at how we can make our own further education more innovative by including mobility – also abroad – as an option. We are fortunate enough to have funds available for this. So it will be “off to Europe”.
If you are interested in exploring innovative work experience incl. mobility as a means to update competences or to discover new ones, you should check on our SASSI Hub.
In early May, the SASSI consortium met for a 2-day meeting in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. The meeting was hosted by our Slvakian partner CVNO – an education centre for non-profit organisation.

Jobshadowing in London – Schülerförderung mal anders
Im Rahmen unseres KA1 Projekte INTENT hatte ich die Möglichkeit ein 2,5 wöchiges Jobshadowing bei einer spannenden gemeinnützigen Organisation in London. Jobshadowing bedeutet, dass ich den Kollegen dort über die Schulter geschaut habe und mich von deren Projekten und ihrer Arbeit inspirieren lassen durfte. Meine Gastgeber waren 15billion ebp – eine Organisation im Osten Londons, die Schulen im Stadtteil Borough of Newham dabei unterstützt, SchüleInnen auf den Übergang in die Berufswelt vorzubereiten. Dies ist im Borough of Newham von besonderer Bedeutung, da es einer der einzigen beiden Stadteile von London ist, in denen ethnische Minderheiten die Bevölkerungsmehrheit stellen. Continue reading

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.
One of our staff members, S., 52-years old, female, went for 3,5 weeks to the Marseille-based Eurocircle Association that is an organisation that has been working in the field of youth international mobility, non-formal education, intercultural dialogue, social and professional inclusion, citizenship and diversity for more than 25 years and is thus an expert in dealing with diverse groups of learners. With its experience with European and international programmes and activities there was a lot to learn from them in terms of relevant approaches on how to involve these target groups in various informal and non-formal learning activities.
After her return, she wrote: Continue reading
BUPNET was successful in applying for funds for their continous professional develpoment of their staff. The KA1 project entitled INTENT – Intercultural competences and development for new target groups is funded within the framework of the EU Erasmus+ education programme and offers our employees and teaching staff the opportunity to gain new impulses and ideas for improving their own practice and to extend their practical competences in during teaching or learning stays in other European countries. In the next months our staff members will go abroad and either be involved in job shadowing activites or in training courses. The team is very much looking forward to this experience!
