Title TrainCoDe – Die Entwicklung von Humankapital und die Förderung des aktiven Alterns durch das Lernen und Coaching
Project Number 2013-1-PL1-LEO05-37747
Project Type Innovationstransfer
Marketing Text Das Projekt hatte zum Ziel, die Beschäftigung von Managern 45+ (sowohl der arbeitslosen als auch der Rentner) zu steigern. Man hat dieses Ziel erreicht, indem man ihre Qualifikationen erhöhte und die schon beherrschten Kompetenzen bei Schulungen und Beratung ausnutzte. Grundsätze und Ziele dieses Projekts wurden durch die Anpassung und Ortsbestimmung des transferierten Schulungsprogramms in Bedingungen der inländischen Projektpartners erreicht. Der Transfer und die Anpassung des oben genannten Schulungsprogramms ermöglichten den Vermittlerorganisationen und den Geschäftsschulen das individuelle Programm für arbeitslose und pensionierte Manager zu sichern, ihre Rückkehr auf dem Arbeitsmarkt zu unterstützen und den Problemen der sozialen und beruflichen Ausgrenzung von älteren Beschäftigten entgegenzuwirken.
Today, demographic change is a global phenomenon resulting from two almost universal trends: declining fertility and increasing life expectancy. As a consequence most parts of the world will witness demographic aging. For Europe the demographic process above mentioned could cause a gradual shift from a society with quantitatively dominant younger cohorts to a society in which the elderly form a solid majority. The impact of this phenomenon on the labour market should be taken into account, and actions for enhancing a longer participation of elderly to the market arena should be put in place. The issue is becoming even more relevant under the light of the current economics crisis, which caused serious companies downsizing. Managers over 45 lose their job and despite their high level of qualification, were excluded from the labour market because of their age. While there have been significant policy initiatives at European and national levels concerned with age discrimination, the evidence indicates that these have yet to directly influence the behaviour of many employers. Nonetheless, elderly workers (both employees and retired), particularly those having managerial roles and experiences, could represent a relevant human asset for EU economy both inside companies, and outside them, as valuable source of inspiration and know how for those younger professionals and SMEs looking for advices.
The target groups of the TrainCoDe project were: managers over 45 dropped out the labour market (both unemployed or retired), intermediaries (training organisations/business schools), companies, stakeholders supporting the organisations active in the VET sector. The project aimed at fostering the employability of managers over 45 by upskilling and exploiting their competencies in a new professional domain (training and consultancy processes).
The project aims and objectives were achieved by transferring, customising and localising a training programme (Professional Faculty Programme) developed by ISTUD. The transfer and adaptation of the above mentioned training programme helped the intermediary organisations to provide unemployed and retired managers with a tailored training programme to support their reintegration in the labour market, addressing the issue of social and professional exclusion of elderly workers. At the same time the programme enhanced the exploitation of elderly managers experience in different contexts, thus facilitating the setting up of cross-fertilization processes among generations. The partnership applied 3P approach in transfer of know-how: PRODUCT (training programme/methodology/materials/tools) - PLACEMENT (adaptation to other countries, fine-tuning and testing) PERFORMANCE (development of capacity of trainers to work with the products in the partner countries). The partnership consisted of 5 experienced organizations coming from 4 EU countries.
The project implementation is divided into 7th WPs. The tasks being executed are as follows:
1) Regional need analysis based on the state of art, desk research, structured interviews and questionnaires carried out in the transferee countries (PL, CY and RO) to identify the EU best practices in matter of initiatives for supporting and upskilling the managers dropped out from the labour market due to the economic crisis and managers retired as well as the specific needs and expectations of target groups and intermediaries in the field of carrier management and the re-integration into a new professional domain.
2) Customization of the methodology and training materials which are the subject of the transfer to different socio-cultural, sectoral and linguistic contexts according to the results of the regional need analysis
3) Translation of the materials (teaching materials, etc.) in the native tongues of the transferee regions;
4) Testing the project products in every project country and train-the-trainer activity
5) Promotion, dissemination and exploitation of the project and its results.
The target groups of the project are as follows: over 45 managers dropped out the labour market (both unemployed or retired), intermediaries (training organisations/ business schools), companies, stakeholders supporting the organisations active in the VET sector.
