SIMPLY INCLUDED kick-off meeting in Sweden: empowering migrants in their work paths.

Our member organisation Hetel from Spain just started the SIMPLY INCLUDED project under Erasmus+ KA2 program which aims to reach out migrant students or graduates in VET to share their stories in the path to education and the labour work in order to guide and inspire other migrants who may feel reflected in them.

The project seeks to empower migrants all over Europe by sharing videos of those stories. In the framework of the project, a toolkit will be produced by the partnership that can be used by VET teachers in order to facilitate a more inclusive education.

Complementing this work, a group of teachers will have the opportunity to go to Iceland in order to receive a training in diversity management by one of the most prestigious trainers in Europe (Intercultural Iceland). At the end of the project videos focusing on the job application process for a migrant will be produced in the different partners countries: Germany, Turkey, Sweden, Spain and Slovenia.

The partners of the project have experience working together in the SIMPLE project, which was the seed of SIMPLY INCLUDED. Moreover, Hetel is involving its associated VET school, Centro Formativo Otxarkoaga, who will lead the development of the toolkit in the project.
