Our new Erasmus+ project Ready4Crisis started with a 2-day kick-off meeting in Schwerin, Germany. 8 partners – project managers, educational institutions and crisis management institutions – from Germany, Czech Republic, Greece and Poland have joined together in a consortium to actively contribute to the innovation of vocational education in the field of crisis management and monitoring.
There is an urgent shortage of secondary level educational resources in the field of crisis management and crisis monitoring due to emerging crises, hazards and natural disasters resulting from current climate change and societal changes. Furthermore, there is a great need for further training of vocational schoolteachers and instructors in the study/learning subjects of fire safety, fire safety management, fire prevention and similar subjects for emergency personnel, such as paramedics or security forces, as well as exchange and transfer of knowledge from abroad on this subject. With the project, we also want to help create new links between vocational training institutions and training organizations at the international level, with a focus on training in fire and rescue services, and thus develop a new basis for mutual cooperation. In the first step, we focus on the development of innovative teaching materials – inspirational pedagogical guidelines for vocational teachers to provide additional, adequate sources for training in crisis management and monitoring.
From November 14th to 16th, the partners of the Erasmus+ project growMET (growth mindset in educational triangles) met for their second workshop in Tirgu Mureş/Romania. In a very creative and demanding way, the project results we developed so far together were put to the test: how can they support the development and implementation of challenging digital school projects?
The second part of our workshop dealt with our final project result: a growth mindset model for digital teaching. In two groups, we identified different resistances towards changes in the educational sector and developed a strategy to overcome them. The project partners will present the final results of this demanding project early next year at conferences in Romania, Slovenia, Italy, Germany and the Basque Country/Spain.

As part of our EMPOWER project, all partners are now in the process of testing the created portfolio of instruments for self-assessment and guided assessment of migrant women’s entrepreneurial competencies. In Germany today, we held the second of four planned events with 13 migrant women and conducted two more of the instruments. It was a pleasure to see how motivated and enthusiastic the women were to participate in the activities, and they have so much professional potential to tap into. Thank you for the great experience and the interesting conversations and shared insights! It showed once again how important and valuable our work in this project is.
in initiative of our employees in our project Familienwerkstatt Schwerin is now finished. It symbolizes the cycle of life, a balanced, constant give and take. A great action, thank you!
“Family Workshop Schwerin” is a joint project of RegioVision GmbH (project coordination) and Anker Sozialarbeit gGmbH. The project is funded for the period from 01.03.2020 – 31.12.2022 in the model program “Akti(F) – Active for Families and their Children” – within the framework of the European Social Fund financed by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
Teachers from vocational education and training and project staff from the Czech Republic, Italy, the Basque Country and Germany met in Schwerin from 25-27 October for the first of three planned workshops.
Between the learning units, there was also time to compare the current situation of school education and vocational training in the participating countries and to take away tips from practice.
All participants praised the open and friendly atmosphere of the workshop. Many thanks also to the Landesvereinigung Gesundheitsförderung, which made it possible for us to hold the workshop on their premises.
Next year, two more workshops will take place in Durango/Spain and Prague.
