Key activities of the project, including arrangements for management of the partners,

monitoring of the project and evaluation.

slide3

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The Lisbon strategy pays close attention to the integration the immigrants in

the labour market. The 2007 Lisbon National Reform Programmes (NRP)

show that many Member-State authorities rank migration and integration

issues among their key policy challenges. From the Commission’s side, a

series of initiatives to step up policy efforts were set out in the Communication

“Towards a Common Immigration Policy”, which was adopted last December.

The focus is on two main types of policies. The first set of initiatives promotes

the inclusion of immigrant workers in EU labour markets. This is particularly

important for the large number of immigrants with low qualification already

settled in the EU. The initiatives mainly consist of active labour market

policies (focusing on training measures, wage subsidy schemes and the

involvement of employment services). The second set focuses on the EU labour

market’s need for migrant work. In particular, it looks at policies facilitating

access to the EU labour market for flows of qualified migrant workers in order to

alleviate existing labour and skill shortages.

slide4

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The Lisbon During the 2000-2006 European Social Fund programming period, the

Fund provided considerable support to the integration of immigrants. Training was

one of the key measures to help migrants integrate into society and into the job

market. Each year, the ESF assists - through training and other projects – some

600,000 people with a migrant background or from ethnic minorities - and it is

aiming to increase this number considerably during the 2007-2013 programmes.

Migrants are identified as one of the key target groups for the ESF (European Social

Fund) 2007-2013 period and nearly all Member States address immigration in their

ESF programme priorities. Furthermore, Member States have to report on what they

are doing to help increase migrants’ participation in employment.

slide5

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The Migrant women are at a distinct disadvantage, in many areas of their lives,

compared to both migrant men and native women. This is one of the main findings of

a study, carried out by RAND Europe on behalf of the European Commission, on

the role of migrant women in the EU labour market.

According to the commission there are 14 barriers which prevent members of ethnic

minorities from fully participating in the labour market:

slide6

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

Taking into account this scenario our European consorcium propose to work in

CULTURAL COMPETENCES (Priority 5: Raising competence levels of groups at

risk)that focus on integrating groups with particular difficulties on the labour

market, as immigrants and those with a migrant background, and ethnic minorities,

by developing their work-related skills and competences also increasing the interest

and participation of men or women in those VET fields in which they remain

under-represented.

slide7

Taking into account this scenario our European consorcium propose to work in CULTURAL COMPETENCES (Priority 5: Raising competence levels of groups at risk)that focus on integrating groups with particular difficulties on the labour market, as immigrants and those with a migrant background, and ethnic minorities, by developing their work-related skills and competences also increasing the interest and participation of men or women in those VET fields in which they remain under-represented.

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

Cultural competences understood them as key competences for LLL and a major

factor of innovation. Moreover, The report "Creating an Innovative Europe" (the Aho

report) recommends urgent action to better exploit the EU's innovation potential and

for that reason we want to introduce a strategy to facilitate the creation and marketing

of new innovative products that we will point out afterwards.

The users/beneficiaries will be on one hand the trainers/teachers. And on the other

hand According to the priorities of the General call 2008-2010 of the Community's

Lifelong Learning Programme. Special attention is given to facilitating the

participation of sectors, social partnerorganisations and companies, in particular

small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in allLeonardo da Vinci actions, then

the managers will be also users and finally adult learners (Inmigrants)

slide8

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

Needs analysis (regarding companies managers as beneficiaries): Nowadays the

diversity is a characteristic that Europe characterizes cultural and socially,

representing as a worthy increasing phenomenon of study. The woman incorporation

to the labour market, the ageeing population, the European unique market, the

migration movements and the use of multidiscipline equipment within the

organizations are increasing the European labor force social and professional

diversity . The work groups are diverse as far as gender, age, culture and functional

area. This diversity increase has aroused an enormous interest in the companies on

new methods of management that respond in an effective way to diverse labor force

demands.

There is an important lack of knowledge and skills to among the trainers/ teachers

related to issues of social inclusion of this ethnic minorities in the learning

environment as labour intervention, career guidance processes, legal and obligation

guidances, intercultural sensitiveness, lack of intercultural values promotions…

slide9

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The recognition of the diversity as a competitive advantage and the acceptance that it

constitutes an inherent characteristic to the globalization phenomenon, many

organizations have been taken to implement new management diversity initiatives.

These initiatives are developed to reach integration objectives. It requires, also, the

specific acquisition of a series of skills or tools (denominated Cultural Competences)

slide11

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

How are we going to generate and classify useful cultural competences

in Europe?

We will work in two ways. The first way will be through the educational system and

the 2nd way will research through management environment,

We will create specific resources to managers, trainers, teachers and education

professionals. To accomplish the results we want to implement the following project

among 6 partners from 5 European countries “Configuration and development a

cultural competences model and a methodological guide for the actors

(trainers/teachers/managers) involved in the integration and access of (Ethnic

minorities) diverse groups in the labour market.”

slide12

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The project has got 5 planning phases during its implementation:

1.- Need analysis for developing this project. Check the cultural competences lack

among our users/beneficiaries (trainers, managers and adult learners) and identify

three different diversity strategies models implemented in Spain, United Kingdom

and Germany through politics, procedures and programs in the organizations and in

the vocational training System

2.- Translate these different models (experiences) in cultural competences.

slide13

Taking into account this scenario our European consorcium propose to work in CULTURAL COMPETENCES (Priority 5: Raising competence levels of groups at risk)that focus on integrating groups with particular difficulties on the labour market, as immigrants and those with a migrant background, and ethnic minorities, by developing their work-related skills and competences also increasing the interest and participation of men or women in those VET fields in which they remain under-represented.

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

3.- Concrete products- durable outputs development. Development of the didactic

resources (Products will be based on the following methodological / didactic

approaches: Teaching tools, good practices, DVDs, didactical and pedagogical

resources, linguistic learning methods, inclusion competences (cultural competences),

teaching models to conduct intercultural communication training, practices and

models to educate a person about diversity, skills for diversity effective

trainer/teacher, diversity training/facilitation skills, skills for communicating with the

immigrant communities...)

slide14

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

4.- Pilot Project implementation. The partners will use the didactic material and a CD

ROM will be edited gathering the didactic material.

5.- Disseminate, publish, and communicate the results, journals, workshops. (i.e. The

partnership provide a link www.etdf.fefd.org as a network) ETDF (European Training

& Development federation) in a transnational networks

slide15

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

If we want to put in practice these cultural competences, we must provide to our

beneficiaries, (trainers/teachers/managers) with specific knowledge and material for

intercultural learning process in terms of cultural competences. Based of the needs of

the final users mentioned before, one of the results of our project will be Didactic

material.

slide16

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The measures that will be adopted for testing the materials on target users will carry

out by means of 3 ways of action:

a) We will publish and put the didactic material on disposal of all European

trainers/diversity management professionels/teachers in the major European training

website, that is European Training & Development Federation web site.

b) We will offer and send to all adult educational organizations and companies that

are in transnational network with the partners of the consorcium.

c) Also the countries that will receive the innovation transference will be the leading

agents in their countries expanding the cultural competences/skills.

slide17

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

This Didactic material will allow trainers/teachers/managers to introduce the cultural

competences and dynamics of the intercultural learning in the school and in the

organizations with creative/innovative tools to ethnic minorities. Some people will

consider there are a lot of manuals for diversity management, but our Didactic

Material will be specific for development of the cultural competences in Vocational

Training Schools and enterprises.

slide18

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

(Following the LLP Guide 2009 Part I: General provisions-5C-Generic tipology of

project results)

Results: 1.-The Didactic Material as a product and 2.- Methods 3.-Experiences.

1.-The didactic material will be the result of taking into account the already verified

and successful experiences in Spain, UK and Germany and besides other European

countries(Bulgaria ,Slovenia) will contribute with their commitment implemeiting

this Didactic Material in their respective schools/organizations during the project(3rd

phase: Pilot Project implementation). So, these two last countries will become aware

of the importance of cultural competences and could be the leading agents in these

countries expanding the message of intercultural learning in their countries. This is

the second result of the project: to make aware of the importance of promoting the

intercultural learning to these two partners.

slide19

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

The project itself will not invent cultural competences but will identify and innovate

the concrete cultural competences. Therefore, regarding to the impact of the project to

the beneficiaries the results concreted in didactic material of cultural competences

will cover training needs of managers/trainers/teachers improving their skills in

dealing with diversity.

slide20

PROJECT CHARACTERISTICS

We pointed out that there are 3 types of results. On one hand, the didactic material

developed among the principal partners experiences before and during the project

development. On second hand, the implementation of the didactic material of the rest

of partners in their respective schools/organizations during the project (3rd phase:

Pilot Project implementation). The indicators that will be used to measure the

progress of the work and the extent to which it will deliver the expected outcomes

will be the number managers/companies and teachers/schools within reach of didactic

material.
