Birmingham and Black Country Creative Consortium
Date du début: 1 juin 2015,
Date de fin: 31 mai 2017
Gecko Programmes - in Birmingham and Wolverhampton - delivers training to people who are, or aim to be, employed in the creative and services sectors. Gecko is leading a consortium of FE colleges in Birmingham and the Black Country with numerous college sites across all of Birmingham, also including Kidderminster, Stourbridge and Wolverhampton.
This project sends 184 learners who are studying or have completed studying a curriculum relevant to the creative and services’ sectors to Spain and Italy for either 22 days or 60 days.
During this period, the participants will develop their enterprise skills and employability and take part in a work placement with one of the partners. This will develop their skills and competences in marketing, event management, tourism, creative production, exhibitions and promotions, restoration, export management and leisure.
The participants will develop a wider awareness of the chosen industry, improve their transferable vocational and soft skills, demonstrate initiative, build entrepreneurship, confidence and self-esteem, declare aspiration through their career development plans (job prospects) and improve their language skills and cultural awareness.
We aim to boost employability, with participants gaining the sparkle they need to compete in the current job market - attaining the job they want, and being able to manage their own career development as a citizen of Europe. This economic activity benefits communities - communities looking inward upon themselves and gaining cohesion with active players, and those looking outwards or projects and employing organisations that each gain an European perspective.
We build on Learning Plans by devising individual development plans that declare goals for self-development and ways of working in new teams and for new projects. Learners are supported to be entrepreneurial and to gain confidence and presentation skills.
The project works with four receiving partners, who each deliver our Enterprise and Employability curriculum, and monitor progress and recognise achievements in a consistent manner across the project.
The project lays the foundation stones for a Birmingham and Black Country consortium that will eventually include all FE colleges and their sites. The project impacts upon all consortium members, supporting them to develop their own European Development Plans and to enhance the curriculum and the learning experience.
The project will include a two-day staff training event at its commencement, familiarising the consortium members with the processes and tools used to administrate and validate individual mobilities.
