Di&Di- promouvoir la diversité en luttant contre les discriminations - 2013-2015

Di&Di- promouvoir la diversité en luttant contre les discriminationsDi&Di- promouvoir la diversité en luttant contre les discriminations

The Di&Di project aims at proposing a tool and strategy for two specific target groups: qualified youngsters with migratory background and low qualified women also with a migratory background. It will propose a tool & mentoring that should allow them to take into account their special needs, to value their route, to define their professional profile on the basis of positive choices (and not being assigned to specific jobs). Albeit their profiles might be different the difficulties on the labour markets are quite similar. The Di & Di project should enhance exchange of experiences between youngsters and women in order for them to build their professional future. The youngsters may transfer knowledge and specific competences; women will transfer their experience and other competences.

The main innovation of the  Di & Di project is : to address directly people with a migratory heritage to support them on the labour market focussing on two specific target groups (qualified youngsters and low qualified women); to propose a tailor made training to these special target in order to make them think of a professional future ; identify skills and competences ;  open their perspectives for employment or new professional career, with a special view to enhance their creative and spirit of entrepreneurship competences ; to propose a mentoring, a collaborative method meant to enhance the exchange of experiences and competences among two target groups with different profiles (qualified youngsters & low qualified women)

Success at school – SASSuccess at school – SAS

Initiated by iriv together with the University of Northampton, this project is financed under the Lifelong Learning Programme, Sub-programme Comenius. The main aim of the Comenius project « Success at School through Volunteering » is to propose to youngsters living in difficult areas a pedagogical approach to enhance a voluntary involvement to succeed at school. The project gathers six countries : France, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom and Slovenia. This project was awarded first place in the selection 2012 of the Comenius projects. It is offering a training programme to youngsters facing difficulties at school based on volunteering ; it will value this experience in the spirit of the Vaeb project.

 At the 2000 European Council in Lisbon, the Union defined the dimension of the school failure problem as : “The number of 18 to 24 years old youngsters with only lower-secondary level education who are not in further education and training”. An EU benchmark was set, that the proportion of early school leavers should not be more than 10% by 2010 (European Commission, 2006). By 2006 only six of the twenty seven Member States had met this benchmark. The average early school leaving statistic in the remaining twenty-one countries is 18%. This is nearly the double the benchmark to be reached by 2010-“ a real challenged” underlined the European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE) under the direction of George Psacharopoulos (The costs of School Failure – A Fesaibility Study, June 2007). The situation is different from one country to another : in 2007, the proportion of youngsters 18-24 years having left early school was 39,2% for Portugal, 18% in Bulgaria ;13,1% in France and 13% in the UK and 5,2% in Slovenia.
