GET OUT OF THE STRESS TRAP!

Say STOP now and take advantage of our training offer free of charge via our website: or via app:

In the course of digitalisation and the increased use of homeoffice offers, new digital technologies are spreading rapidly in the organisation of internal cooperation. However, this development is not only a blessing – but goes hand in hand with changed work routines and new sources of stress. Tools don’t work? You only communicate – and don’t feel like you get any work done? Messages arrive on your mobile phone even after work?

These are just a few examples of #technostress. Learn with our training courses how digital technologies influence and burden your everyday working life – and what you can do about it. Whether as a company or out of your own interest – test the solutions developed in the #STRESS-LESS project via our project website or by App.

You want to create structures to holistically create a healthy digital working atmosphere? A training course has been developed for #companies to assess their own processes and take organisational countermeasures.

Interested? Visit us on our #homepage. The trainings for companies will take place in presence, if you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them personally.

All trainings are of course free of charge. We look forward to seeing you!

CareerBOT

Chatbot based Career Guidance

CareerBot partnership seeks to improve Digital Readiness of the Career Guidance sector by implementing CareerBot methodology and tool, facilitating blended guidance sessions and to use customized Labour Market Information (LMI) to empower marginalized job seekers. We want to put Career Guidance Practitioners at the centre and assist them – and their organisations – on the path of digitalisation so that they can advise their clients in the best possible way.

By the help of our methodology, job seekers will be able to gather relevant information before and after personal interviews, so that valuable personal services can be used efficiently. With the “CareerBot project” we propose a pilot that focuses on the role of career guidance, which became more demanding, and must be adapted more rapidly and flexibly to the changing needs of the new world of work.

The CareerBot project includes 4 main project outcomes:

  • CareerBot Content and Methodology
  • CareerBot Tool
  • Blended CareerBot training for Career Guidance Practitioner
  • Transfer Handbook for Implementation with focus on Organisational Development (OD)

In addition, a training event for Career Guidance Officers will be held in Greece and ten Multiplier Events will be organised towards the end of the project to share the learning and engage with all the relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the new CareerBot tool and its benefits.

Digi-Ageing

overcoming loneliness

“Loneliness in old age” is a well-known social phenomenon that still receives too little attention. However, the current pandemic clearly shows us that we need to pay more attention to the issue. Older people are increasingly isolated in this situation:Those in care facilities are secluded for their own protection, others have little contact with friends and family or live entirely on their own. People caring for older people are often overwhelmed by the many safety precautions and challenges in their own daily lives. This is also true for family caregivers.

Since October 2020, the international Digi-Ageing consortium has been working on a comprehensive concept that addresses these challenges and develops appropriate measures to counteract the phenomenon of “loneliness in old age”. One of the main goals is to increase competences in the use of digital tools in the elderly care sector and to create a strong network that develops joint solutions.

What we develop

  • Research reports on the topic of loneliness in old age
  • Creation of a network that specifically counteracts this phenomenon
  • Digital diagnostic tool to be able to recognise “loneliness in old age” in good time
  • Digital intervention tools for education providers in the field of elderly care, for caregivers, for caring family members and for interested older people themselves
  • Curriculum for the Digi-Ageing Training Programme for the Care Sector

How we reach caregivers

Within the framework of the Digi-Ageing project, so-called “pilot trainers” are trained to subsequently conduct training sessions with other interested persons from the field of elderly care. These professionals will then implement the Digi-Ageing method in their own institutions and recruit other interested people.

STRESS-LESS

Well-being and prevention of stress from working

The STRESS-LESS project aims to provide and support the uptake of innovative open pedagogies and approaches in the field of improving the digital competences as well as personal, social, and learning competences of staff of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). The project will be focusing on equipping people with knowledge and teaching them habits how to better cope with digital stress.

Especially as a result of digital transformation and the associated changes in business models, workflows and the use of digital tools, employees are faced with constantly increasing demands in terms of flexibility, accessibility and transparency. As a consequence of this progress workers are suffering growing stress-related conditions.

The project objectives are to

  • develop new training content about prevention and management of digital stress that can be applied in work-based settings or in “home-office” settings by SMEs, their staff, managers and trainers/mentors. The training content will be available online, free of charge via web and mobile based platform;
  • empower VET teachers, trainers and mentors in work-based settings through the development of effective digital, open and innovative pedagogies;
  • provide data from research and feedback from practical implementation of measures against digital stress to scientific organizations, training organizations and policy makers, so that they can build upon the results of the project.

As a result of the STRESS-LESS project in the long run SME staff and other learners will be healthier, less stressed, easier to communicate with, suffer less from depression and burn-out. SMEs staff will take less sick leave and be more productive, efficient and competitive.

DigiVET

Digital Media for VET in SMEs

Digital media offers a new and effective way to engage employees who have low levels of qualifications in small SMEs in learning. In many countries the formal education level of employees is still weak and migration within and to Europe has led to an inflow of additional learners who lack the levels of language to engage in learning using traditional techniques. Digital media can help to overcome this barrier to learning by using more audio, video and visual material to support learning. However, many VET trainers and SMEs lack the competences needed to use digital media.

The objective of the project is to enhance the use of visual digital media in SMEs, to support the training of employees with low levels of qualifications. This will be done through the development of modular online learning programs about the use of visual digital media. The focus will be on visual material for the field of VET learning and shaped by guiding principles and concepts which were used, implemented and evaluated in Germany by ISOB and ‘SoWiBeFo e.V.’ (e.g. ‘Coaches for Digital Learning’ and ‘Media Pedagogy for Teachers’). The conceptual model for learning and the expertise generated from the projects will be used to develop similar material for VET trainers and facilitators of learning in small SMEs.

Objectives

VET trainers and facilitators in SMEs will acquire competences for digital learning in two steps:

  1. acquiring basic skills in digital visual media use
  2. using digital media in training of staff who have low levels of qualifications

A key feature of the project is the provision of support from trained coaches within the partner organizations, who will be available to support in-company trainers and facilitators as they introduce digital learning. In-company facilitators will work with the end recipients (low qualified staff as learners), digital and visual forms of workplace learning.
Final beneficiaries – Low qualified employees and employees with a lack of educational language skillsVisual media as instructional videos make learning independent, allow for repeating the content as needed, and can be designed to promote language proficiency at the same time.

FYC

Future-proof Your Career

Career Guidance for a Modern Labour Market

Future-proof your Career aims to design, develop and implement a Future of Work Framework, focused on the identification -through a guidance process- of transversal skills which can be used to future-proof the careers of disadvantaged job seekers and enable sustainable future employment.

This forward thinking career guidance framework will provide a way of working for guidance practitioners which facilitates quality future focused career plans for job seekers already marginalized in the labour market, so as to ensure their inclusion in a technological and digitalized world of work. It will support marginalized job seekers to understand and gain awareness of key competencies which are essential employability competences for a future labour market. These key competences underpin the ability to adapt and change to the demands of a technological workplace and are important in up-skilling in initial and continuous vocational, educational and training.

The project has three main objectives

  • to enable Individuals to become aware of their own skills for the future labour market particularly in relation to communication and interpersonal skills
  • to create awareness of future workplaces, their requirements, and associated VET progression routes
  • to create a culture of training and up-skilling of guidance practitioners in a fast changing labour market

The main outcomes of the project

The FYC online platform: develop an online e-learning like platform which will, through a series of interactive questions and animations, help the individual identify their human, social and psychological capital, and their connection to the current and longer-term labour market. It will identify areas where the individual could benefit from vocational or industry specific upskilling. It will provide the individual and their guidance practitioner with a report outlining existing capabilities and make suggestions as to how these could be built upon and utilized and thus enable the individual to prepare for a labour market which is driven by automation and digitization.

FYC Training Modules for Practitioners: Development of a training module for practitioners on the future of work, the types of jobs available, their make up in terms of hard and soft skills, and the career path options available to job seekers

Diagnosis and actions for young people looking for a better future

This project aims to help disadvantaged young people by elucidating and interpreting the recent recommendation of the EU Parliament and Council which stresses the 8 key competencies for lifelong learning.

The direct target of the project is the group of professionals working with these young people such as: Practitioners in School, University and/or Labour guidance; Career Guidance Practitioners, Agencies and of the Employment Centers; trainers and teacher of the VET sector.
The indirect targetgroup are the young people with disadvantage condition (particularly the NEETs and the new arriving refugees, migrants or asylum seekers entering or looking for a VET opportunity), then all the organisations involved in the specific topic (VET schools and institutes; Public Administrations dealing directly with the young and with education, labour and reception policies; trade unions; enterprises, etc.)

The concrete aim of the project is to build with and to offer to the direct target a useful tool kit to help the young people with disadvantage condition aging from 18 to 29 years with specific training, education, on-the-job activities in order to facilitate their entrance in the more appropriate VET channel to strengthen their competencies and/or in the labour market.

Throughout the project’s lifecycle, a comparison of the existing best practices on the topic of key competencies development will be promoted and a specific MOOC platform (Massive Online Open Courses) will be planned, tested and launched to support competencies assessment and their development to enhance training and/or employment opportunities for the disadvantaged young. An original diagnosis tool kit based on innovative frameworks, including gamification and survey will allow the Practitioners and teachers to map the soft and professional skills of the young people and to assess their level.

At this stage the Practitioners and teachers will help young people to write their first EU curriculum, then, using the modules on the platform (also multimedia), they will help them to decide how to overcome the existing gaps selecting the right training or apprenticeship opportunity/ies. At the end the Practitioners and teachers will be able to assess again the skills and competences and, accordingly, to rewrite the CV. On the platform an innovative section will be targeted to match enterprises and workers, so the Practitioners will be able, with the young people, to point out the more promising working opportunities for the future professional inclusion.

INSEMOT SME

Information Security Modular Training for SME

The general aim of this project is to provide owners of SMEs/MEs and their staff with understandable and efficient information and a modular training on Information Security (IS) in order to meet their obligations under the terms of the legislation and to ensure their compliance. The cross-border development of IS activities is important, as several rights and approaches in the EU vary considerably in terms of privacy, data-security, consumer rights and liabilities.

Therefore we offer:

  1. a multi-national information and training portal, aiming to facilitate an enriched and speeded-up learning process by sharing, structuring and modelling a huge critical mass of informal expertise and tacit knowledge, e.g. to develop the understanding of legislation concerning data protection throughout the EU with focus on the 6 partner countries and our defined target groups.
  2. a tailored blended learning program in the field of IS for SMEs/MEs and their employees, address the demand-supply mismatch identified, clarify their specific needs and to encourage them to adopt better and more advanced security services. The concrete outcome will be a modular training of about 40 training units: we plan 16 classroom units & 24 e-learning/self-study units in order to provide the target group with a flexible but efficient way of learning, which is not too time consuming.

e2-p

electronic entrepreneur portfolios

The general aim of e2-p is to widen access to existing web-based entrepreneurship learning through the use of ICT and to contribute to entrepreneurial (further) education & training.

The projects tool for creating ePortfolios (ProfilPASS) aims at assessing, keeping record and finally presenting someones individual abilities and skills. Users are being encouraged to reflect on their entrepreneurial skills they have acquired in different contexts, as well as to support the creation for their own educational biography.

The additional knowledge portal guides entrepreneurs by a process and topic based approach. Broad information is being made available and structured into the four entrepreneurial stages in order to provide the information required depending on the each users status within (1) business idea, (2) preparation/business plan, (3) foundation, (4) first steps as enterpriser. During each phase entrepreneurs are obliged to deal with different issues like market analysis, decide on a legal status, apply for a credit, etc. For each phase the relevant issues are discussed in the questions&answers. Additional to the process all information can be accessed by topics like finances, law, market, etc. The platform connects information within one environment that entrepreneurs usually need to collect from different sources. Finally the website operates as gate into the ePortfolio.

The combination of both solutions aims to support young people, especially graduates of vocational based education in the process of starting an own business in the tertiary sector successfully.

Project results

  • ePortfolios to support the preparation phase
  • Organization and implementation of trainings for mastercoaches for the use of ePortfolios.
  • Website for entrepreneurs
  • National reports

NRH e-Marketing

e-marketing concept for the Neue Regensburger Hütte

The Neue Regensburger Hut (NRH) is one of the most important bases of the Stubai High Trail which is an important economic factor in the Stubai Valley in summer and a central attraction of tourists hiking in the Stubai Valley. Yet, only a few hikers and local regulars visit the huts. This makes an economical survival difficult.

The challenge was accepted by Mr. Eder: A guest that is satisfied with a “dry place to sleep and a hot soup” is long gone and is nowadays rather looking for entertainment and activities before and after the tour, seeking increased comfort and activities. In this project, Mr. Eder, together with the supporting partners, met these trends and new challenges and was able to get through a strategic and very professional approach towards a long-term safety and attractiveness of the business.

The highlight of the project is a comprehensive marketing plan:

  • Website with online booking
  • Social media integration (especially Facebook, YouTube, Google Earth, etc.
  • Event and Event Calendar
  • seminar program
  • Newsletter Marketing
  • and much more

The successful repositioning of the NRH shows that even very small companies and businesses can profit by existing funding opportunities and by active support from the outside.
