The #GetInvolved Project develops the following Outputs:
Train the Trainer Workshop
We are developing a workshop for teachers, trainers and HR managers of VET institutions. In order to create democratic procedures, fight discrimination and activate students for social engagements it is important to train staff members of VET institutions. The workshop aims to sensitize them in this topic.
Learner Competitions Manual
The second planned Output shall be a Handbook for teachers and trainers, which helps them to conduct students’ competitions. VET-students shall be empowered and motivated to “GetInvolved”, to take actively part in civic society and engage in social projects. One possibility is to create internal competitions in school/companies or taking part in already existing competitions or even motivate students to apply in the Solidarity Corps by the European Union.
The project will develop a Self-Monitoring Tool, which can be used by companies, schools and other institutions within the VET sector, to examine their structure and raise awareness of potential discrimination, participation possibilities or similar. The tool will consist of different categories and shall have a format, which is easy to use and self-descriptive
Building up on the other Outputs the project will develop a concept for a certification process that shall lead to the “#GetInvolved” label, which certifies VET-institutions, schools and companies democratic competences and structures. As mentioned, it is important to create role models within the VET-Institutions to cause a real change also in peoples’ mind. The label assures a real change within the named institutions, gives them a better visibility, and supports them in the competition for the best young talents.
