  1. MYKmobil

    Project

    MYKmobil is a transnational mobility project that aims to offer new opportunities and access to education, training or employment for disadvantaged young people and young adults who are currently unemployed. Furthermore, the target group often lacks transnational key competences, such as the abilities to deal with crisis and conflicts, to work in a team or to deal  with ambiguity.  At the centre of each project cycle of 6 months is a 2-months work placement in France. Besides the acquisition of specific professional skills, the participants have the opportunity to develop and deepen within the project their intercultural and social competencies and competence in foreign languages. An intensive preparation of and continuous support during the stay abroad, the evaluation and transfer of gained competencies after the stay abroad and the cooperation within a partner consortium at regional level guarantee an effective use of MYKmobil

  4. PLAI 2.0- Move to the next level

    Project

    PLAI 2.0 - Move to the next level” focuses on the main theme Transnational Social Inclusion and the sub-theme 'Developing and disseminating of good practices on social innovation’. PLAI 2.0 aims at several groups of vulnerable (prospective) (young) jobseekers and workers in the labour market and in our labour organisations.As final product, we see a European digital open source learning platform on which AI practitioners and professionals in gaming find different kinds of techniques, methods and examples of AI processes with analogue and digital game methods and forms of expression. These practices provide a response to a group of people with low language skills and to other vulnerable groups on the labour market and in labour organisations. Thereby the participation of vulnerable groups increases and supports the positive development of our society and the labour market.PLAI 2.0 is the follow-up project of PLAI, a succesfull ESF project in Flanders, Belgium (ESF 2007-2013)The intial PLAI project developed playful methods to  make the AI method (Appreciative Inquiry)  accessible and usable for diverse groups of employees in companies and labor organizations. Through the power of games and the use of modern ICT opportunities, staff with fewer language and expression skills or less training, are actively involved in co-creative organizational processes.ESF approved by order / ESF approved on request:€ 116 782.00VCF approved application / VCF approved on request:€ 116 782.00Other funding approved at request / Other financing approved on request:€ 2 359.00TSK approved by order / Total Eligible costs approved on request:€ 235 925.00

  5. Reducing youth unemployment in cities with dual learning

    Project

    In this project we aim to look at the challenges that come with big cities such as increased youth unemployment. One way to tackle youth unemployment is ‘dual learning’, an education system in which youngsters receive more than 50% of their education at work. This system has several advantages. First it prepares the youngster for the labour market, gives him/her real work experience and they receive a qualification by the end of their education. On the other hand it is also beneficial for the employer, as they can train future employees and give them the valuable skills needed for the job.This project will look at the specific challenges for applying dual learning in three cities, Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent. We further want to develop an international partnership to continuously share information and best practices with other cities and projects that work on dual learning and youth unemployment.

  6. Value diversity in care and education

    Project

     FrameworkRecent international research (CoRe, 2011; 2016; NESET II, 2016) shows that in many European countries, part of the ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care) staff is made by low qualified assistants (co-workers that help and assist the core practitioners in working with children and families).The following conclusions come out from the studies:The ‘invisibility’ of the ECEC assistants in research and policy documents contrasts with the high number of assistants working in ECEC services.Assistants often have low or no qualification and few possibilities to enter a path towards a qualification.Assistants have few opportunities of continuous professional development.Assistants often have an ethnic minority background and/or low socio-economic position in society. Their presence within the workforce can contribute to diversify the team.Why a transnational project?The challenges of the Flemish Community of Belgium regarding the position of assistants in educational settings are similar to the challenges in other European countries. Besides, a number of European countries have interesting practices regarding adapted pathways towards qualification and effective continuous professional development of assistants. This is why this project foresees a transnational part in collaboration with other EU countries.Main challengesMake ‘Invisible assistants’ in ECEC in the Flemish Community of Belgium and Europe visible as an opportunity to diversify the workforce-policy.Develop a conceptual framework and inspiring practices for sustainable and quality employment of assistants in ECEC to value diversity in school teams.In particular, the project aims at answering the following questions:How should work be organized in order to fully benefit from the diversity in the team?How can lower educated assistants be offered training opportunities to acquire an equivalent level of qualification as teachers?

  7. Transition to and integration at a new workplace for LGBT people

    Project

     transition to and integration at a new workplace for LGBT people. This project aims to improve the situation of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and trans*) people and by extension gender nonconforming people on the labor market. We focus on the transition to a (new) job and the first stage of integration at a new workplace. To achieve this objective, the project aims to increase the expertise and sensitivity of the ‘regular’ labor market players who are responsible for guiding people to (new) work and for well-being in the workplace. The project aims at transnational knowledge sharing on the situation of LGBT people in the workplace and the methods developed in this context in each region to improve the situation. Finally, we will develop a methodology based on the accumulated expertise and implement it in the Flemish labor market.

  9. Learning through Innovation in Facilitated Teams (LIFT)

    Project

     This project proposal starts from the idea that life long learning is an essential aspect of every human career. Our world and our working conditions are changing rapidly and we all need to develop new skills for our employability and for the future of the companies and organisations we work for. For that purpose we need  efficient and effective methods of building and sharing new knowledge and skills. In the LIFT-project (Learning thruogh Innovation in Facilitated teams) we want to explore and develop some methods of social interactive learning in teams of people working in the same company or organisation. We want to focus on methods of working with and facilitation of these learning teams. We are also paying  special attention to the leverage of diversity in these teams, especially by including elderly collaborators (50+) and new collaborators with a refugee background.This  diversity and the power of innovation are  essential success factors for our LIFT project.  Together with our transnational  partners, we want to share existing knowledge and experiences on learning in teams end develop further this type of learning and innovation by  mutual learning,  co-creation, testing, ….  The final product will be a website in different languages with methods, tools, examples, exchange of information and interaction between facilitators and more. If your institute would like to discuss possible collaboration in our LIFT-project, please give us some information and persons to contact As a next step, we can visit you during the coming months in order to prepare our application with your participation before the end of September.

  10. Tea for Two: adapted social profit into adapted elderly care

    Project

     The project focuses on two sectors: social economy (social employment) and assisted living and elderly care.We have a close look at some urgent issues from the perspective of both sectors and we connect them.How can we adapt or break up assignments of the caretakers (so) to avoid distraction because of non-explicit tasks of care in order to focus on their real task(s)?Our partners of the assisted living care made perfectly clear to us that the current assignment of tasks is unbearable!These non-explicit tasks increase the pressure of work and keep the caretakers from their main tasks.It mainly concerns logistic tasks that could be carried out by an unskilled work force.We will disclose these tasks and we possibly will create new jobs.How can we, being social profit, take over these assignments and how can we facilitate the assisted living and elderly care?Which initiatives and assignments can possibly develop?How can we integrate these assignments into the Flemish labour market?In other words: which adaptions are necessary, which cooperations are needed to start up and how can we let take over these tasks by the employees of a target group?For this purpose, we will list existing initiatives, we will look for Scandinavian examples and we will convert them to the Flemish way of living. We will try out some initiatives in a strong partnership.The results of both sectors will be compared afterwards and we will formulate a number of recommandations for the policy, based on these results.
