TOONS _ TOOlbox for New Skills

Description

Description

The specific objective of the TOONS project is to elaborate a methodological toolbox for using the anticipated future regional needs for upgrading the present VET-programs and creating new ones according to the regional forecasts. The Tool-box is elaborated by the forums (peer/management groups including PES and employers organisations) according to the following: 

1. Future regional labour market demands per occupational sector/ and its effect on demand per occupational skill profiles 

2. Labour market supply per type of education according to skill profiles 

3. Inclusion of the result of the regional forecast for future skill/jobs needs into a set of skill profiles which can be used for development of new VET training programs for future jobs in the regions. 

Stakeholders contributed to the goal achievement by the following: 

– Public Employment Service (PES) provided regional forecast and interpretation of regional needs per occupational sector and needs for VET- education 

– Employers representatives contributed with interpretation of demand per occupational skill profiles and review of new/ upgraded VET-programs for future
– VET-partners provided suggestion for new VET-programs according to defined skill profiles 

The working methodological toolbox is developed within the framework of active Forums (peer/ management groups (with PES and employers organisations) at organisations in this partnership.

Title
    European Perioperative Room Nurse Key Skill Management
Hyperlink
Comments/Description
    The Room Nurse Key Skills (RNKS) project is based on 2 points:
    – firstly, on the highly operational and innovative approach that the IFCIL (www.ifcil.fr) has designed for companies with important quality stakes:
    Key Skill Management (K.S.M.)
    -and secondly, on the observation that operating room nurses practise a profession calling on their skills and requiring them to be constantly up to scratch in a very high risk environment
    Operating room nurses, the European network of operating room nurses and French associations of operating room nursing schools are therefore the project’s target groups.
    The project objective is to transfer the KSM approach to these people in 2 stages:
    1) apply the approaches and methods underpinning it to certain aspects of operating room risks
    2) inform all European countries of the project outcome and KSM approach through the European Operating Room Nurses Association (EORNA), which is the project’s official partner.

Title
    ICF-Train – Social Online Skill Training: ICT-based team learning in ICF
Hyperlink
    http://www.icf-training.eu
Comments/Description
    The goal of the project is to enable joint-learning of transdisciplinary teams as well as parents of children with disabilities or at risk with the help of a Web 2.0 assessment tool.
    By using ICF-CY as a language, the quality of Early Childhood interventions/Early habilitative/rehabilitative Services should increase and team orientation should be encouraged. Reason: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF,WHO 2002) is a classification of health and disability. The ICF-CY (Children/Youth with 1400 items) represents WHO’s quality fram for assessments for children. Former "EQM-PD" introduced ICF online assessment into the field of assistance for adult persons with disability (PwD); ICF-Train transfers these online tools into the work with children.

Title
    Simulazioni INterattive per l’APprendimento di Skill Individuali
Hyperlink
    http://www.nac.unina.it/sinapsi/
Comments/Description
    The goal of SINAPSI- Simulazioni INterattive per l’APprendimento di Skill Individuali – is to deploy and test an innovative online tool and methodology for the teaching of “soft skills” such as negotiation, entrepreneurship, creativity, motivation, teamworking. The project is motivated by increasing European interest in soft skills, which many European organizations perceive as a way of improving overall effectiveness and efficiency as well as the performance of individual worker. Today, however, effective training in soft skills is still relatively rare. There are many reasons. Some of the most important are the limitations and high cost of traditional teaching methods, which mainly target small groups of managers. Another factor is the inability of small companies to make the required investment. Cultural and economic factors also play a role: even today, managers in some European countries are less aware than others of the advantages to be gained from effective training in soft skills.
    SINAPSI will circumvent these difficulties by exploiting the specific advantages of the platform developed in SISINE and the general advantages of e-learning. These include a strong ability to motivate learners, ease of use, the elimination of geographical barriers to access, and the lowering of training costs. At the same time, however, the project teaching methodology will maintain the advantage of traditional face to face teaching, assigning a strong role to specialist tutors and maintaining a focus on the differing needs of individual participants.

Title
    Learning 2.0gether: SME Workers and Young Unemployed Skill-Sharing for Employability
Hyperlink
    http://www.learning2gether.eu/
Comments/Description
    Learning2.0gether addresses the employability skills needs of younger, unemployed people, and the Web2.0 skills needs of older workers in SMEs and microbusinesses by bring the two groups together in a partnership enabling them to work together and learn from each other. An ageing workforce across Europe; a global economic crisis; an EU labour market comprising of 99% SMEs; the highest need for digital literacy and the highest recorded levels of youth unemployment in Europe (46% ES; 33% IT; 22% UK).These conditions combine to form a crisis in provisions for lifelong learning and employment to young (16-25yrs) and old (50+yrs). Learning 2.0gether aims to meet these needs by providing relevant employability skills to support those entering (young unemployed) and remaining (50+ SME workers) in the labour market through mechanisms enabling the two groups to work together and learn from each other.

The specific objective of the proposal was to elaborate a methodological toolbox for using the anticipated future regional needs for upgrading the present VET-programs and creating new ones according to the regional forecasts. The Tool-box was elaborated by the forums (peer/management groups including PES and employers organisations)

Solutions

General

The proposed project developed a methodological toolbox for management/peer groups which facilitate:

1. Interpretation of future regional labour market demands per occupational skill profile

2. Interpretation of future regional labour market needs per type of education according to skill profiles

3. Inclusion of the regional forecast for future skill profiles into new VET programs in the regions.

Particular

The tangible result is a tool which covers the process from interpretation of forecast to job/skill profile and from there to upgraded VET-programs.

Stakeholders in the management groups contributed to the following:

– PES provided regional forecast and interpretation of future regional needs per occupational sector

– Employers contributed with interpretation of demand per occupational skill profiles and review of new/ upgraded VET-programs for future

– VET-partners provided new VET-programs according to defined skill profiles
