On 20 June 2022, the consortium joined the second transnational meeting of the SPECIAL project, held in face-to-face format in Pescara, Italy.
SPECIAL project, which brings together seven partners from six European countries (Sweden, Italy, Iceland, Belgium, Spain and Romania) and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, aims to strengthen, reignite and nurture the “life” and “soft” skills of young people who are neither studying nor working in the European Union (NEETs) to help them (re)integrate into post-COVID societies and labour markets.
During the meeting, the partners were able to strengthen their partnership by having a face-to-face meeting for the first time, as well as to discuss the status of the project in its administrative aspects, and the ongoing deliverables: the OER platform (PR1) and the needs assessment of the target group in each country (PR2).
The OER platform, as the main output that will host the products resulting from the project (reports, training, guidelines and recommendations), is now available at www.projectspecial.eu in six languages (English, Spanish, Italian, Icelandic, Romanian and Swedish) to ensure the visibility and transfer of the results, as well as the promotion of the training of European NEETs in a simple and intuitive way, free of charge and without login.
Furthermore, the consortium started the definition of the next output, the SPECIAL Training Toolkit (PR3), taking into consideration the results of the training needs assessment and the European LifeComp and EntreComp frameworks for the creation of attractive and effective content for young people not in education nor in employment.
In the coming months, partners will work on the development and peer reviewing of the training contents of SPECIAL, as well as on its subsequent uploading and implementation on the OER platform.
Stay tuned on the news of the SPECIAL project through the platform and the social nerworks Facebook and Youtube!
