Product Training program
Title Training program
Product Type teaching material
The training programme is both a tool and a model to accompany young graduate migrants and low-qualified migrant women who are looking for work or professional advancement. The training is centred around content provision and the strengthening of capabilities:
to identify situations of discrimination (linked to their origin, age or sex) that they may meet on the labour market,
to gain the knowledge and methods necessary to overcome discrimination
to obtain tools and strategies so participant can present their own migration background as a strength and advantage professionally, particularly from the perspective of promoting diversity
A first model for the training programme in 10 modules was presented by one of the partners, Iriv Conseil, during the European meeting in Berlin. Bearing in mind the additional content and improvements suggested by the other partners, Iriv adapted the model and sent a new version by July 2014. This common model was then translated and its content and the way the modules were organised was adapted by each individual partner for the experimentation sessions to be held in each of their countries. The specific contexts of the experimentations were taken into account to propose a programme that would be useful for the professional insertion of the target audiences and would be directly useable by local facilitators and trainers.
Pedagogical material, training guidelines for the facilitators and additional content were developed and proposed during the sessions. For each theme, the partners were encouraged to make a parallel between their country, where the experimentation was ongoing, and the European context. For example, by presenting the legal and institutional frameworks used in the fight against discrimination at different levels. Following the experimentation phase, the partners collaborated to regroup all the materials they had elaborated separately on a national level to develop some collective reflections on the sessions results. After a SWOT analysis of the common training model, organised by IECOB and ECAP during the European meeting in Zurich, the final improved and simplified European prototype was elaborated by Iriv.
