Youth (Participation, Youth Work, Youth Policy) Inclusion - equity New innovative curricula/educational methods/development of training courses
The main aim of the project is to adapt four British methods of working with youth at risk of social exclusion and to enable their implementation in Poland and other European countries. As part of the project, a training program will be developed for each method, serving to equip users with knowledge about the method and competences enabling their use in the work environment. The methods that are the subject of the presented project will be validated during the daily work of therapists, educators, teachers and youth workers.
The whole project assumptions were developed jointly by 3 partners (Powiatowe Centrum Pomocy Rodzinie w Oświęcimiu, Uk Butterflies and Fundacja Edukacji, Rozwoju i Innowacji) and each of them plays an important role in partnership. The project assumptions were planned together and the process of preparing both the action plan and diagnosing the needs and detailed analysis of the problematic situation was conducted in close cooperation.
In United Kingdom , the Transnational Partner (UK Butterflies) implements many methods that can be successfully adapted to Polish realities and needs. Several of them have already been used in the work of institutions run by the Poviat Eldership in Oświęcim - among others by the Poviat Family Help Center in Oświęcim. Since the implementation of British methods in the daily work with youth turned out to be accurate, at the stage of preparing the aims of the presented project, further training needs of the Projector's staff were examined and four further methods were selected that will be adapted for implementation in Poland:
- SELF - STARTING,
- CALMFULNESS (relaxation techniques, mindfulness, breathing in psychotherapy, Sedona method),
- TIC-TAC (healthy relationships),
- BE SMART
As a part of the project, the following results of intellectual work will be elaborated:
1 Model scenario of working with you- SELF-STARTING
2 Model scenario of working with youth - '' CALMFULNESS '' RELAXATION TECHNIQUES
3 Model scenario of working with youth - TIC-TAC
4 Model scenario of working with youth - BE SMART.
12 people will be invited to the testing phase of the elaborated results of intellectual work. They will take part in four educational workshops organised in Bradford (each workshop will concern one method).
The last scheduled phase of the project implementation will be dissemination activities, within which the following are planned:
- Seminar disseminating the results of intellectual work in Bradford,
- A conference popularising the results of intellectual work in Oświęcim.
The project assumes working out universal results at least on a European scale.
