COMBI: enhancing migrants’ communication competences in work environmentHow to improve the communication competences of the migrants in work environments?

Which are strategies to consider to favour the social inclusion of the disadvantaged adults?

Helsinki was the scenery of the second partner meeting of the COMBI project on the 24th of November 2017.

All COMBI partners met in Finland to talk about the latest activities carried out by the consortium.

The project meeting was the occasion to analyse the advisory board members’ feedback on IO2, the Toolkit for the training of Trainers which has been developed by Banaiz Bagara elkartea with the contribution of all partners and to plan the next IOs, namely the platform for piloting the Trainers Toolkit.

During the project we will work on:

  • a communicative competence acquiring methodology for the health care/elderly care sector;
  • tools for evaluating the impact of the COMBI method in the language skills of the workers;
  • guidelines and good practices (local authorities, institutions for adult learning and designers of educational contents, stakeholders in the health care and elderly care sector in particular);
  • recommendations for European policy makers.

COMBI – Communication competences for migrants and disadvantaged background learners in bilingual work environments  is co-funded by Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for adult education with the main aim  to develop innovative and inclusive/systemic practices and methods focused on acquiring communication competences in the languages required in the workplace.

It takes into consideration the multilingual reality of European regions. The aim of the method is not to acquire full competences in two or more languages, but to make sure that the regional language is taken into consideration as far as it fulfils language requirements in the workplace.

The project partnership holds together 6 organisations:
