Marketing Text The CD Rom is called "Collection of Tools", since it includes all project final outputs. It has been printed and is available on line on project website.
The CD Rom includes:
- Tipeil Methodological Handbook "Enhancing learning from the perspective of lifelong learning. The electronic portfolio as a tool to validate formal and non formal learning in the European workplace" in 5 versions (Languages: IT, ES, FR, GR, EN) in *pdf format;
- Tipeil Technical Guide to the web based Platform use (how to create, modify and see electronic portfolios uploaded in the TIPEIL Platform). The Guidelines are in in 5 versions (Languages: IT, ES, FR, GR, EN)in *ppt format.
Direct beneficiaries are included in two main categories:
1. operators (tutor, trainers, etc.) working within training, counselling, guidance and employment organisations, providing these services to subjects that for different reasons are in social and occupational disadvantage;
2. organisations providing the services above mentioned, with respect to TWO main typologies of beneficiaries: young and adults.
The whole of outcomes and outputs planned are indirectly addressed to a range of potential users as:
-Young with low education levels who, for example, have left compulsory education pathways and are attending or have attended alternative training coursewares through which have acquired competences and capabilities difficult to be valorised or formally recognised by the system and that are at risk of “employment exclusion”;
-Young and adults who have realised fragmentary and heterogeneous working experiences, within which have acquired capabilities and skills potentially usable and improvable if properly identified, measured and valorised;
-Adults at risk of unemployment, whose competences acquired during their work-life-cycle do not meet within the systems effective tools and devices to valorise them.
Result Both the Handbook and the Technical Guidelines were essential to implement the transfer of the Digital Portfolio Method proposed by the project. These tools were mainly used by the operators involved, since the whole of the methodology is directly addressed to them. Their specific role, in fact, in a counselling context, is the one of tutoring the young and adults who wish to create their personal electronic portfolio.
Area of application The products are addressed to the training of Counselling and guidance operators, social workers and employment centres'operators. The training is focused on both the methodology to be applied while tutoring a person who wishes to create his/her personal electronic portfolio and on the procedure to be followed (technically) to create and upload the different materials required to make a portfolio, using the web based platform (operators' ICT competences).
