ACTIMENTIA 2018-1-DE02-KA204-005231 is an ongoing European collaborative project that has been funded with the support of the Erasmus+ program (KA2) of the European Union. It lasts from 2018 to 2021.
During the first week of April (1st to 5th of April) the second short-term training event and the third International Meeting to evaluate the implementation of the Protocol in women at risk of social exclusion, took place in Riga, Latvia.
All partners gathered for a week of activities related to the integration of vulnerable women in the labour market through the improvement of their soft skills.
The trainers had the opportunity to learn more about mentoring women, how to promote soft skills such as achievement orientation through art activities, namely collage and comics and how to support women in their time management. The training also focused on topics of individual support and methods for developing cooperation and communication within a group. Continue reading
Imperceptibly passed the 3-year WHOLE project, which was launched in September 2016. During the past time, the project consortium consisting of different organizations from 6 European countries, inc. two universities, managed to carry out a variety of activities to develop and implement the project proposal tasks and to reach project goals.
The curriculum serves the need to train adult education professionals for their work with women at risk of social exclusion and fewer educational opportunities. The training based on that curriculum should help the practitioners to support women with fewer opportunities to get aware of their transversal and social skills and to strengthen them with the aim to increase their chances of an adequate equal integration into the labor market.

At the end of March 2018, the last meeting of project Senior Social Entrepreneuring was held. Host of the event was the UK partner organization – the University of Shrewsbury. During the meeting, the achievements reached by the consortium to date were discussed: developed portfolios with good local initiatives, good practices of social entrepreneurship from different European countries.
At Generations several meetings and discussions took place with different partners around a common topic: “Women at risk of social exclusion – what support and training do women aged 45+ need to best assure their adaptation to the new requirements of the labour market, that changed due to demographic and economic conditions?”
Ready information materials, an interesting website, a functioning online learning platform, pilot seminars organized by all partner organizations from the WHOLE consortium – these are undoubtedly good results of our work for the past 9 months, which were the basis of the discussions during the last project meeting in January 2018. This time hosts were colleagues from the ATOM Center, Patras, Greece.
The first international meeting happened on the 13th December in Sevilla. In this meeting, partners had the opportunity to meet and overview the whole project plan, calendar, and task distribution.
The next step will be the implementation of a research to better define women at risk of exclusion training needs.
After this protocol, guidelines and interactive resource platform will be developed and improved with the help of training courses for experts. In the final stage, the Protocol will be tested with a group of women and presented in specific dissemination activities in all countries.
