COMPLETED PROJECTS

»RefuTools«

The “RefuTools” project is aimed at refugees. The purpose of the project is to give refugees an improvement in their entry conditions in the labor market and also in the education system. The Paris Declaration states that refugees should quickly and easily be given the opportunity to work in host countries. However, the system of vocational education and training in the countries of origin of refugees is often not comparable to those in Europe. Thus, refugees cannot simply be recognized for their profession or professional qualification, many times there is also a lack of documentation and access to the labor market or education system is denied to them, which ultimately means that the integration process is almost impossible.

Študijski obiski

Study visits are designed to understand each other’s education and training systems and to share experiences and good practices among decision makers, practitioners and professionals.

During the study visits we visited:

Networking and collaboration between businesses, local communities and educational institutions providing vocational and vocational education and training
(April 23-27, 2012, Horsens, Denmark)

The study visit was designed to get to know the Danish school system (particular emphasis was placed on their dual system) and examples of good practices in connecting schools, local communities and businesses. They also presented us some research in the field of connecting all three actors mentioned above and showed us some of their institutions: we visited the Lernmark school, where they have well-equipped workshops in which future masons, carpenters, painters, ceramists, mechanics …, VIA University college, Horsens municipality, Blunico.

During the visit, the participants were primarily concerned with the following challenges: how to make the vocational education system as flexible as possible, how to attract young people to get a vocational education and how to reduce school dropouts, how to provide young people with sufficient knowledge to be more successful in finding a job .

The organizers told us that in Denmark, schools, businesses and the local community work together and in harmony. It is important that this is not just about one-off projects, but that it is a connection that is present on a daily basis. They emphasized that if any part is missing, the system no longer makes sense. Given that the three actors are involved, it must be ensured that everyone knows exactly what their role is in this relationship.

Most participants from other European countries stressed that teachers should be more involved with the activity they teach. Above all, you should have a good knowledge of the latest products and equipment used in practice. In addition, employers should also monitor apprentices more and report on their progress. They also stressed that good practice examples are difficult to transfer, mainly due to different systems and policies and that system oversight should also be improved.

Fleksibilne poti do vseživljenjskega učenja (10. – 15. oktober 2010, Copenhagen, Danska)

Flexible pathways to lifelong learning (10.  15. oktober 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark)

In Denmark, they have a long tradition of non-formal adult education which enhances the general knowledge and skills of individuals and enables them to participate actively in society. Participants in the study visit gained insight into Denmark’s innovative approaches to creating key competences and measures to create a flexible education system that combines non-formal and formal adult learning.

Real estate: lifelong learning, exploring and meditation (1. – 3.12.2009, Nantes, France)

StudyARCNAM, the organizer of the study visit, is an institution that has a tradition of more than 200 years, which is very impressive and undoubtedly confirms its sovereignty and authority in the areas they control. The real estate mediation training was presented extremely well. The reason for promoting mediation disputes is that it is important for the progress of society as a whole to reach consensus and not to hold on to certain positions. Litigation is very delaying, which is associated with high costs in the case of real estate transactions.

Their approach in mediator training is as follows: after 3 days of training, candidates complete the test and then demonstrate their knowledge in the field of dispute mediation through role play. There are 3 candidates in the group, two receive each part of their story and the mediator is zero. Then, through the process, they identify discrepancies and find a solution together. The Commission observes this process and evaluates the work of the mediator. Then the roles and stories are replaced. What is interesting about this is that they test both theoretical knowledge and mediation skills in a direct case.
