Constellations are very useful tools for working with individuals and teams. The constellations that originate from Bert Hellinger’s work and systematic coaching are nothing but a set of elements that create a pattern and have their own structure. This is a live map of the client that represents his internal relationship landscape.

Teamwork & Teambuilding

Nowadays, it is widely accepted that a critical element of success for a team is the diversity of skills and personalities. This diversity can be harnessed in such a manner that team members can use their strengths in full but at the same time compensate for each other’s weaknesses. Another critical element of team work success is that all team efforts are directed towards the same clear goals, the team goals. In this respect, team work success largely relies on good communication in the team and the harmony in member relationships. On the other hand, team building skills are critical for effective management and leadership. Team building skills are essential not only for those who are on a managerial and/or leadership role but for all employees, given that better understanding of team work can make an employee/team member more effective and efficient at professional level. The ‘Teamwork & Teambuilding: reach high & far’ course will equip the participants with essential knowledge and tips on how they can become better team members, how they can get their team to work more effectively as well as how to lead a team into success. The course gives emphasis on the essential tips for creating member teams, such as fostering open communication, building trust, setting clear goals and harnessing/capitalizing on diversity. This is a masterclass course taught by high-calibre trainers and professionals with vast practical experience in working and building up international teams.

Are you a teacher or trainer working with adults? Are you interested in learning about what makes a good adult educator or what learners expect from teachers?

The SET C. project (Strength Empowers Teachers’ Competences in Adult Education, project number: 2017-1-HR01-KA204-035390) is aimed at improving skills and competences of adult educators.

This publication presents the research results on skills and competences needed for effective work in multicultural organisations. 

The research was conducted in five European countries: Poland, Latvia, Italy, Cyprus and the United Kingdom under ERASMUS+ project "Cultural Risk in the Organisation in the Globalisation Era - competences vs. reality" (2018-1-PL01-KA204-051056).

Training Plan for course on free and open source software (FOSS) for small and medium enterprises. This European project initiative aims to help to promote the use of FOSS in business. The purpose of this course is to provide you with an overview of the most important FOSS concepts and solutions that are available today for you to consider and use in your own business. The course is broken down into 5 main units with sub-topics in each unit. Each individual unit contains a summary in advance of a series of lessons on the topic.

The FOSS-BU competence profile outlined here aims to identify and select the knowledge, skills and competences specifically related to the usage of FOSS in the business sector, in full compliance with the ECVET system outlined by the European Commission.

This Synthesis Report is meant to collect and put together the results of the six different Country Reports (for Greece, Germany, Italy, UK, Ireland and Sweden) developed by the partners of the FOSS4SMEs project. Each Country Report, as the main deliverable foreseen by the IO1/A1 ‘Research’ phase, comprises an overarching and comprehensive overview about the different national situations with relation to the usage of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) within SMEs across Europe.

In brief:

  • For informal carers and focused on Alzheimer
  • Short, blended, micro-learning- based: 20 hours= 16h face to face / 4h eLearning
  • Planned for about 6 weeks
  • Available in 4 languages (EN/FR/ES/DE)
  • Free of charge and with an open license (Creative Common 4.0 allowing further changes if non commercial use and distributed under the same license

 

On the basis of the Carer+ Digital Competence Framework, a complete programme structure was developed, containing a total of 5 interrelated modules organised under 3 themes:

  • Foundational skills
  • Managing social care with ITCs
  • Providing home care through ICTs.

The Virtual Learning Environement was created by using Drupal Commons and Moodle 2.5: 5 platforms were created: an original one in English and 4 for the piloting partners in their local languages (France, Italy, Latvia, Romania and Spain).

The team of the Institute for Strategic Research and Education (ISIE) was engaged by E4E@mk Project to conduct an analysis of the current situation and the challenges with a special focus on the legal framework, the resources and other processes and competences within the formal vocational education. The analysis is based on empirical research conducted in the period August - October 2018.
