Title : Youth Builds Up Green Future: Eco Innovation

Category : Sustainable Development, Innovation

Target Group : Engineering Students and Newly Graduated Engineers

Project Aims:

The green, sustainable economy idea, which provides advantages in competition and creates added value and is considered to shape the future is an indispensable term for the young people who are employed or prepared to be employed.

With reference to these needs and reasons, this project is required to cover the need of “eco-innovation and sustainable development”. The students of faculty of engineering that are or will be employed in the production processes of the most polluted industries (construction, energy, manufacture, petrochemical, agriculture etc) and have the most immediate needs and young engineers that are working in these sectors have been specified as target audience. The basic objective of our project is to form and implement “Eco-Innovation for Youth” training program that will support developing of competences for contributing to these targets by providing improvement of the production processes by the target audience.

Outputs :

  • Training Package of Eco-Innovation
  • You-Greenate Interactive Platform
  • Sustainable Ideas Network

Activities :

  • Developing Eco-Innovation Training Package
  • Establishing and Developing You-Greenate Interactive Platform
  • Young Engineering Meet-Ups

Innovative Systems to Improve Skills And Competences of Supported Employment Providers

Title : Innovative Systems to Improve Skills And Competences of Supported Employment Providers

Category : Innovation, Disability, VET, Skills and Competences

Target Group : Supported employment providers- job coachers, career counsellors, social workers, job specialist who directly working with people with disabilities and implementing the Supported employment process

Project Aims :

Supported employment (SE) approach defined as a method of working with disabled people and other disadvantaged groups to access and maintain paid employment in the open labour market. This identification is as very beneficial to the PwD and it gives clear quality improvement of the accessibility to the labour market for those targets. People with disabilities are the most disadvantaged group with regards to employment and they will directly benefit from the SE implementation by well-qualified SE providers such as coachers, mentors, counsellors, job specialists etc.  The European union of Supported Employment in 2013 Annual report (page 46) declares the need of methodology and system for recognition, validation and certification of the skills of the SE providers. “Innovative Systems For SE” will develop of dedicated VET programme for training of job coachers of people with disabilities which does not exist so far in Europe as officially accredited job profile. The project project will continue supporting the inclusion of the supported employment approach  where this will be done for the first time by developing EQAVET system for recognition, validation and accreditation of their knowledge, skills and competencies.

Outputs :

  • Consolidated Survey Findings
  • EQAVET System for Recognition
  • Validation and Certification of SE Providers
  • Instructions Guide for the SE Competencies Monitoring Service
  • ``Innovative Systems for SE`` VET Training Programme For Supported Employment Providers
  • Usability Report
  • ``Innovative Systems for SE`` Online Learning System
