D.E.E.M. Project and its current good evolution, in Romania and in all EU
European Academy is involved since September 2016 in a new EU funded project. It is the “Erasmus + KA2” – Strategic Partnerships for VET “DEEM – Developing Enterprise & Employability during mobilities“. DEEM is a funded strategic partnership “network to network” project aiming to adapt and transfer to the partner nations an enterprise and employability curriculum that can be used during mobilities to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of beneficiaries of such schemes and lead to sustainable employment. With this innovative project, financed by EU, all partner would like to design the most appropriate curriculum and pedagogy and acknowledge the different pedagogical approaches of partners/nations, yet also seek to be uniform in our approach.
It is a complex and high-standing training program thought to boost employability and entrepreneurship of young learners participating to Mobility Programs. This is the most important aim of the Erasmus + Strategic Partnership for VET Project “DEEM”, which has been kicked-off in Italy, since 15.11.2016.
Leaded by Gecko Programmes (UK), DEEM Partnership is composed by: another partner in the UK (City College Birmingham); 4 partners from Italy (Reattiva, Cedit, IFOM and CPA), 2 partners from Spain (Incoma and Integra), a partner from Germany (Globtrain) and European Academy as unique Romanian partner.
Kickoff meeting has been organized in Florence (Italy) and several dissemination activities have been carried out in every partner country, since end 2016 until now. The start-up meeting has been the great occasion to discuss about the future developments of the project and deepen networking activities between Consortium partners.
After Florence, transnational meetings have been organized in Spain (Sevilla) and in Germany (Berlin). During all transnational meetings organized, partners have made good progress with the development of enterprise and employability materials for European mobilities, as required by the project aims.
All partners are working on reports on better practice, improved individual development plan, Employability Materials, improved Log Book and on an expression of learning outcomes and routes to ECVET.
European Academy will continue all its efforts in continuing collaboration and improving Employability through Teamwork, Entrepreneurship and Digital competences.
