“Identities” Freiburg meeting to define training programme



From 11 to 12 July 2017, aiforia had the pleasure to welcome our partners in the Erasmus+ project “IDENTITIES: MUCH MORE THAN CARDS” for the 2nd Transnational Project Meeting. As 13 participants from Germany, Italy, Latvia, Luxemburg, Portugal and Turkey we discussed the necessary features and methodologies for supporting migrants in our country for better integration, with a focus on entrepreneurship.

The results of a common survey by all partners showed even more the heterogeneity of target groups in our countries, with a very broad variety in age, skills and needs. This brought us to an intensive discussion to clarify the structure of the training program in the following 6 modules: 

M1: Language course with focus on business language

M2: Intercultural communication, local culture and costums

M3: European Union

M4: Employment and work life

M5: Entrepreneurship

M6: Civic participation

Each module is planned to include 15 lessons covering about 60 single topics which will be developed further by the partners during the summer period.  Lessons are intended to be held physically as well being provided electronically in the e-learning version from January 2018, yet the methodological design as well as the didactical materials will first be revised with teachers within the international trainers’ meeting from 1 to 5 October in Tolmezzo, Italy.
