On the 19th and the 20th of November 2012 the third meeting of “GIVE – Guidance in Vocational Education for Students in Rural Areas” project, funded by LLP Leonardo da Vinci TOI (Transfer of Innovation) programme, took place in Madrid (Spain). The project involves six partners from five different countries and, among them, the Centre for Creative Development “Danilo Dolci”. Other partners are: Danmar Computers (coordinator) from Poland, BD Center (PL), Oake Associates (UK), Ciberespacio (ES), Know and Can (BG). The Madrid meeting was organized by the Spanish partner Ciberespacio. Daniel from Ciberespacio was deus ex machina during the Spanish meeting.
The partners, who already worked together, met in Spain in order to discuss WP3 and WP4 of the project. In particular, the work done with Training and Sensitization Modules of the online platform, that is still in an implementation stage, was reviewed. Also, the platform translation in different languages and the content of the other two platform modules (E-coaching and Evaluation) were discussed. Roles and responsibilities for creating these last two modules were settled.
The creation of innovative multidimensional LMS platforms integrated with social media, based on the methodology of the CREIN transfer tool, is the core activity of the project, thus the partners of the GIVE project will be committed with the implementation of these useful tools during the next months, since the aim is also to improve the employability perspectives for the students from the rural areas, in order to identify the needs of the employers regarding the VET abilities of young people so to match the actual training offer with the needs of the job market. The next GIVE meeting will take place in April 2013 in the UK.
The GIVE project lasts two years and it is coordinated for the Centre for Creative Development by Dario Ferrante.
