What was the main purpose of this project?
“SK.IN – Skills for Inclusion is focused on development of basic skills and key competences of adult learners, through a path involving both the educators and adult learners with fewer opportunities. The purpose of the project was to reach out to sensitive target groups, people who needed to be included, in this case, prison inmates.”
How did the project foster cooperations and partnerships?
“Our network consisted of partners who really understand the need for inclusion and work with empowering sensitive target groups. The partnership and cooperation was the key of the success of the project. The different fields, expertise, and dimension of the partners was a key element for finding resources for every part of the project.”
The main practice worth sharing was the active listening of people.
What was the best practice learnt from this project that you want to share?
“The main practice worth sharing was the active listening of people. We as trainers also learned from our target group. We tried to apply the knowledge and inclusive methodologies. However, instead of having a recipe ready, we designed the recipe together and according to the needs of the target group.”
