BECOMING: workshop in Rostock

On August 31, experts from the tourism industry met at the “Haus des Tourismus” in Rostock for a workshop on “Trend Analysis Tourism”. As part of the Erasmus+ project “BECOMING”, they discussed developments in the tourism industry in the coming years. Digitalization and sustainability, as well as demographic developments, pose new challenges for companies and their employees. New skills and competencies will be necessary and must be learned and practiced.

The results of the workshop are the basis for the next work steps.

The project “BECOMING” is funded by the European Union within the framework of the Erasmus+ program.

growMET: successful consultation

On 28.06.2021 a virtual meeting of the project partners from the five participating countries took place to discuss the status of the work on the first project results. All partners have done their “homework” and conducted structured interviews with students and teachers and analyzed the results.

These will now be incorporated into the next phase of work, which will focus on the development of a hybrid course material for teachers.

In the workshop planned for the end of September in Ljubljana/Slovenia, these learning contents will be tested in practical use and then refined.

growMET: Kick-off meeting

Once again we had no choice but to implement our kick-off meeting for the new European project “groMET” in the virtual realm. 16 participants from Romania, Spain, Italy, Slovenia and Germany came together for the first time to get to know each other and to take the first steps in the project together.

Video calls have become quite familiar in the last year, but it is always a challenge to conduct such a first meeting in this way. All participants are hopeful that the next meeting, which is scheduled for November in Italy, will be held in person.

New Erasmus+ project

We are happy to announce the start of our new Erasmus+ project “Growth Mindset in Educational Triangles (growMET). For the next 24 months, we will work together with partners from Slovenia, Romania, Italy, Spain and Germany in the field of digital education.

Accreditation for Erasmus 2021-2027

Good news have reached us: we are now accredited for mobility activities under the Erasmus programme of the EU. Thus we will organise and implement individual internships for VET students and trainers in Europe.

We are very happy about this decision and do hope to implement the first activities in the fall of 2021.

BECOMING: First staff training completed

This week we completed the first international staff training in our project “BECOMING“. Originally planned as a five-day full-time training, we had to compress it to five online sessions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After a necessary adaption phase – especially to the virtual group work – we were progressing quickly. Andrea Buonasperme (Roscioli Development/IT) was an excellent trainer. We learned to analyze important trends in the economy and society using the PESTEL method.

In a next step we deduced the most important skills and knowledge required in the jobs of the future. How will job profiles change in the next five to ten years? Which new job are emerging?

The tools and methods we learned in the training will now be used for the next step in the project: the development of career guidance and development services. All the partners will work together with small and medium enterprises (SME) in their region to identify the necessary changes for the ongoing transformations.

First transnational project meeting for “BECOMING”

On 26.11.2020 eight partner organisations from three countries – Germany, the Czech Republic and Italy – met for their first transnational project meeting in our new Erasmus project “BECOMING”. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic this meeting was completely online.

After a virtual “speed dating”, that helped to get to know each other, the partners discussed and agreed upon the first tasks in the project.

New project in Erasmus+

“Being in continuous innovation and growing” is the title of our new project within the Erasmus+-program. Together with seven other institutions from Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic, we will develop and test materials and methods for the promotion of lifelong learning.

The project will start in October 2020.

Project start for the family workshop Schwerin

The project team

Our project „Familienwerkstatt Schwerin“ (family workshop Schwerin) has received the notice of funding within the framework of the model program “Akti(F) – Active for families and their children“. This project is financed by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs within the framework of the European Social Fund for the period from March 2020 to December 2022.

The aim of the programme is to improve the living situation and social participation of families and children. The joint project of RegioVision GmbH Schwerin and Anker Sozialarbeit Gemeinnützige GmbH will realize the objectives of the federal programme in Schwerin.

The project is aimed at families with children under the age of 18 who receive benefits in accordance with the Second or the Twelfth Book of the German Social Code (including supplementary benefits), parents who receive or are entitled to child supplements, single parents, the long-term unemployed and persons with disabilities. The participating families have the opportunity to try out their practical skills in various areas, to communicate with their children at work and to create something together. Based on the experiences and abilities of the participants, an individual competence assessment is carried out and based on the results each participant receives a personal integration plan with the aim of starting a job or vocational education.
