The “Training Kit for Trainers” aims to establish a framework of an innovative and sustainable programme/course of Vocational educational training (VET training) based on the research and combination of strategies to ensure viable, lifelong practical skills and competences. It equips professional facilitators (trainers, social pedagogues/workers, VET providers, etc.) with practical, engaging and personalised material and strategies which they can use for training the skilled women with migration, refugee and ethnic minority background, to increase their efficiency and productivity as well as enable them to fully exploit their potential. It enables them to acknowledge their strengths, upgrade their capacity and knowledge of the country-specific and job-related skills and competences, and to provide labour market related insight. It provides good practice examples, practical solutions and problem management tools (also via gamification and experiential learning).
It is a sectoral handbook, comprising four blocks:
Block 1: Models for career developing
Block 2: Labour market related skills and competences
Block 3: Models for emotional intelligence
Block 4: Developing/improving cognitive skills
Each training block is intended to ensure specific learning outcomes with knowledge, skills and competencies that enable the participants to enlarge their professional as well as socio-cultural spectra and expertise.
Moreover, each Block is divided into 2 separate sections:
1) a theoretical framework, providing paradigms for developing career- and job-related skills and competences of the target group based on their qualifications,
2) a practical part, supporting creativity as well as confidence building and improving self-esteem of the target group through hands-on sessions and mind-provoking exercises.
