No one is left behind
The Covid-19 pandemic caused a major disruption in education systems around the world and most of the work with an impact on education shows that student learning losses, particularly in those coming from the most disadvantaged families, were very significant. However, learning difficulties and losses are not evident only during the pandemic period, but have always occurred in the teaching and training process, arising from situations of absence from school activities motivated by prolonged illness or accident, lack of interest and motivation.
The project aims to develop proposals of innovative instruments, of digital nature and practical application, based on the STEM/ STEAM methodology, mostly of a non-formal nature, which will develop transversal skills that will be the “empowerment” / leverage so that the process of transfer of knowledge and essential learning is carried out successfully. It will be oriented especially for young VETs, mostly from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, who, due to demotivation and/ or lack of emotional stability, including the consequences caused by confinement and consequent distance learning, are far from educational success and close to school dropout (originating NEET- young people who do not work, study and do not undergo training).
The Summer School Workshops (STEAM base)–Sciences, Technologies, Engineering, Art and Mathematics around which activities/ materials/ forms of control and evaluation are proposed based on everyday situations that youngsters will have to respond to, to solve, to intervene and to investigate. Another Eco/ Social Workshop will also be included, to work on issues of volunteering, SEN, community support and/ or the SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals. These Workshops will constitute the so-called Summer School, with Mentoring programs and will be based on a strong component of digital skills development, aimed at teachers, technicians/ mentors and students/ youngsters in VET systems. Through these tools, capable of causing impacts regarding empowerment in the target group and, also, replicated in groups of the surrounding community, contributing to the pursuit of European policies and in line with the 2030 Portugal Strategy national policies and priorities, the European Education Area, in accordance with the European Framework for Quality and the EQAVET system, in favor of sustainable competitiveness, social justice and resilience.
