Marketing Text As DLQ proposed the development of quite a unique educational methodology and environment for the development of key competences amongst youth at risk, a blended induction programme was developed by Kolping in consultation with project partners.
Description In the first instance, the induction training focused on promoting the use of digital media as an inclusive training environment where the varying dispositions, preferences and attitudes of learners can be accommodated. In the second instance, the induction training focused on using the different facets of media production to support the development of specific key competences among the youth target group. The Induction Programme is available to download from the project website under the Youth Worker Zone and is presented as a PPT Presentation with notes; it is also included with this report.
Target group The induction programme was targeted towards youth workers and professionals working with youth-at-risk and early school leavers and was delivered to 51 youth professionals across the project consortium through induction workshops.
Result As well as promoting the ACT curriculum and the DLQ approach to second chance education, the induction programme also furthered and supported the exploitation of the final project outputs.
Area of application The induction programme was important to ensure a standardised and consistent approach to the implementation of the A.C.T. curriculum in each partner country as it was delivered to the youth workers and tutors that supported the Implementation of DLQ with youth at risk. The Induction Programme comprised 2 parts and was typically delivered by project partners over 1 full day or 2 half day sessions.
