Global competence for advancing social inclusion and career paths of vulnerable women: IDP European Consultants joined the second online Meeting of BOOST

On May 25th 2021, IDP European Consultants joined the second transnational meeting of BOOST, a Project co-funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission, which brings together eight Partners from eight countries (Spain, Ireland, Turkey, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Belgium, and Poland). The meeting, originally planned in Portugal, was held in online mode due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The main aim of the meeting was to take stock of the didactic content developed as part of IO1 “BOOST Global Competence MOOC” and the presentation of IO2 “BOOST Coaching Programme”, a bespoke programme to equip professionals in providing coaching support to vulnerable women and advancing their social inclusion and career paths.

In addition, the meeting was dedicated to define the next steps and actions. Specifically, dissemination activities were brought to discussion for the mainstreaming of the project in EU settings.

In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of VET and adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian VET ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.

BOOST has the objective of fostering global competence for advancing social inclusion and career paths of vulnerable women. Within such context, BOOST is devoted to these women, currently facing vulnerability due to their migrant background and cultural differences, but also targets those professionals whom are working in the field, such as trainers, career counsellors, social workers, intercultural mediators. Through a bespoke coaching programme, BOOST aims to equip these professionals with a toolkit so they can better support these women to use global competence to cope with challenges they face every day.

Shaping the lives of women through the development of global competences – exciting new project, BOOST takes on this challenge!

Global transformation is a constant in our lives, as emerging economic, digital, cultural, environmental forces, and global diseases (such as Covid-19) shape our lives and increase intercultural encounters. To cope with this complex environment, it is urgent to foster global competence and equip all, not only the adults of tomorrow, but also the adults of today, with the necessary know-how and tools to use global competence.

Twenty-first century citizens live in an interconnected, diverse, and rapidly changing world. The result of globalisation has made us have to work, educate ourselves, interact and share with others, from diverse backgrounds and cultures. In the globalised world of today, improving our understanding of beliefs, cultures, customs, languages, religions, and visions different from ours, is essential.

In today’s world, it is important that we all have the ability to become globally competent citizens. However, this opportunity is also influenced by a wavering notion of (in-)equality. This is why it is important, now more than ever to offer support and assistance to vulnerable women across Europe. The BOOST project looks to address this and provide opportunities to shape the lives of women so that they can continue to grow and develop to their full potential.

Speaking at the launch of the Project, Ms. Guadalupe Murillo, Manager with Solidaridad Sin Fronteras who are leading the project, stated that “BOOST looks to empower and motivate women to develop their full potential and generate a concrete impact through an effective and self-sustainable training programme. It is an exciting and far-reaching initiative that could have significant opportunities for transfer right across Europe.”

Therefore, the BOOST project will provide tailored training programmes for women through the BOOST MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and promote a comprehensive approach to global competence with tailored coaching tools for professionals working in this field, such as trainers, career counsellors, and intercultural mediators. All of the resources and materials will be freely available for widespread use across Europe in Spring 2022.

BOOST is a new project, funded under the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme that focuses on fostering global competence development among vulnerable women in order to advance their social inclusion and career paths.

In the Project, IDP brings its consolidated experience and expertise as a private provider of VET and adult education services. IDP has 25 years of experience in international and cross-border collaboration in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship and employability. IDP will greatly contribute to the technical and operational activities of the Project carrying out analysis and stock-taking activities of the Italian VET ecosystem pertaining to the project; contributing to structuring modules, developing methodologies for effective teaching and learning, materials and content.

BOOST will be developed by a team of organisations from Portugal, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Poland, Ireland, and Turkey from September 2020 until August 2022.
