Training for Better Integration of  Unaccompanied  Minors

United Societies of Balkans, a member of the Greek Network of Anna Lindh Foundation, is among the partners who implement a training program to address the needs and gaps of knowledge and skills of professionals whose objective is to offer the professionals the right tools to integration, support and education.

The outcomes of the projects are :

GAP ASSESSMENT AND ROAD MAP (IO1)

TRAINING PROGRAMME (IO2)

4_ONE_ANOTHER E-LEARNING PLATFORM (IO3)

The project aims to:

1) provide UASC and youth with the necessary tools for achieving a successful life and work towards their integration;
2) address the role of professionals working in reception centers: cultural mediators and social workers.

The partnership has developed all training modules of the future e-learning platform based on the following structure:

  • Module 1: Basic presentation of the UASCs
  • Module 2: Legal framework at partner country level and general European framework.
  • Module 3: Societal integration (school, work, etc.)
  • Module 4: Intercultural competences
  • Module 5: Gender mainstreaming, equality, and non-discrimination.
  • Module 6: Coping with the emotional problems of the minors
  • Module 7: Foster care and other form of caring. Coming to Age

The training modules will act as “chapters” of the overall e-learning platform and will be used as self-paced learning experiences that include written content, audio, video, and other visual elements.

The partnership is currently developing the structure and design of the e-learning platform, which corresponds to IO3. It will include a wide range of training modules providing a mix of theoretical information, learning activities, and practical guidance to enhance the skills of professionals working with unaccompanied minors, thus providing cost-effective education.

Over the next few months, the partners will work on developing the project's e-learning platform.

Academy Of Entrepreneurship is a non-profit organisation working with 4 people as permanent staff and several external experts ad-hoc. Its budgetary resources come from education services, “HFAISTOS” and EU co-funded projects. Its main partners are StartUp Nations Research Network, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Trip In Touch, European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes, Entrepreneur Envoy, Euro-Mediterranean Youth Platform, ELSIR Mundus – Network for Innovation and Social and Territorial Responsibility (Internationally) and Federation of Hellenic Associations of Young Entrepreneurs, Aephoria, αέλια Working Life Lab, Knowl for Education and Lifelong Learning (nationally).

As a member of the Entrepreneur Envoy Global Network, and recently of the European Association of Development Research and Training, the AKEP is fully aware of the requirements of the European labour market, transferring this knowledge to the participants of its educational programmes. AKEP’s latest success is its nomination as the official STARTUP NATIONS Greece National partner of the Startup Nations Global Network, a nomination that makes the Academy widely recognized and establishes it as an important communication channel for startup entrepreneurs and enterprises both on a European and a global level.
