The VIVAR E-LEARNING PLATFORM: SMART EDUCATIVE E-LEARNING PLATFORM FOR INCLUSION will propose you many courses to promote learning and enhance the development of the digital and critical competences.
These courses have been jointly designed by teachers and experts on the topics they deal with. We are especially proud to have had the support of their true beneficiaries to design their contents, achieving a close and accessible language while also addressing the issues they especially need and find important. For example, if you choose the COURSE FOR MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES, you’ll find that expert pedagogues, adult teachers, and associations of migrants and refugees have participated in its creation, which has allowed us to create a highly impactful course to promote the inclusion of newcomers in our society and break down the barriers of hatred and racism.
You can see a detailed description of each course at your disposal below:
This course offers its adult users the opportunity to acquire, update, complete, or expand their knowledge and skills for their personal and professional development through formal and non-formal education. We want to offer you the possibility of developing basic training, expanding and renewing your knowledge, skills, and abilities permanently.
Thus, the purpose of the course “TRAINING BASIC SKILLS” is to improve your professional qualification and develop your personal skills and participation in social, cultural, political, and economic life. We want to offer in particular a basic learning compatible with the learning of EPAS and other official adult training centers in Europe, which will facilitate you, once completed, to obtain official adult education certifications.
But this course will also help you develop tools for the critical analysis of your environment, and encourage you to directly participate in volunteering as a mechanism to build a more inclusive, diverse, and fair society.
This course proposes an innovative learning, not focused on memory or individual facts (like outdated education) but on the development of key competences through a virtual and personalized learning that you can conduct from home or even your smartphone. According to the European Parliament (the highest body of the European Union), through Recommendation 2006/962/EC, these competences are a combination of knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes appropriate to the context. This means that we do not only intend you to learn new things, but also learn how to do those things (skills) and how you face them (attitudes).
The course that you are going to start is intended to offer volunteers -or people who aspire to become one- the possibility to acquire, update, complete, or expand their specific knowledge and skills to work on social projects for the inclusion of migrants or refugees through formal and non-formal learning. We want to offer you the possibility of improving your capabilities of helping those who need it the most, and with that to build a fairer and equal society.
This course gathers contents and methodological strategies created through the experience of migrant persons themselves, and compiled over the years by social entities expert in the inclusion of segregated groups. Through the exchange of experiences and shared effort, we offer you a course that we believe is useful and effective to -regardless of whether you have previous experience working with migrants or not- make a difference in their and their neighbors’ lives. This course will also allow you to reinforce the “COURSE OF LITERACY FOR ADULTS”, continuing the training it proposed, with specific content and examples in the field of volunteering. This course, especially aimed at local adults (native or those who are already well established in Europe), is a tool capable of advancing in the curriculum defined in European Order ECD/651/2017 of July 5th, which regulates basic education and its curriculum for adults in the field of management of the Ministries of Education, Culture, and Sports from the different European countries.
Thus, the purpose of the course “SPECIFIC TRAINING AND INCLUSION” is to improve your abilities to carry out volunteer action in a social entity, but also to help you develop tools for the critical analysis of your own environment and encourage your direct participation in volunteering as a mechanism to build a more inclusive, diverse, and fair society.
This course is intended to serve as a guidance tool for migrants who wish to live, work, and settle in a new society, as well as to provide support to professionals from social organizations that conduct reception and counseling tasks for foreign non-EU citizens.
The content is aimed at people who are under immigration laws, and has been made thanks to the joint work of volunteers and experts. It explains the duties and rights of both newcomers and the authorities in all areas; in general terms, it aims to contribute to the inclusion of migrants and refugees, including more specific materials on some of the areas. However, for a personalized information and advice, we recommend contacting a legal service and/or a specialized entity.But this course will also help you develop tools for the critical analysis of your environment, and encourage you to directly participate in volunteering as a mechanism to build a more inclusive, diverse, and fair society.
The contact data of all public entities cited throughout the guide in each area are in the last pages of each of the didactic units, plus a brief list of associations that can provide you legal advice, guidance, and other services aimed at the migrant population.
One of the more useful objectives of the course “SPECIFIC PROFESSIONAL TRAINING” is to obtain, once completed, a certificate recognized by the entities participating in the project, designed under the European Erasmus Plus Programme. This provides information on the different inclusion mechanisms, while also providing resources for the real improvement of the situation of the migrant person.
