European mobility to develop Skills and knowledges in Gold manufacturing sector
Date du début: 1 juin 2015,
Date de fin: 31 mai 2017
PROJECT CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND. The 3DGoldSkills project was born within Arezzo’s GOLD AND SILVER DISTRICT, which is one of the most traditional and historical sectors of Tuscan industry and that represents the Italian excellence in the world of jewellery. The current difficult economic situation, however, has resulted in a sharp change in the competitive landscape that had hitherto supported the growth of the sector. 3DGoldSkills aims at facing these issues by RAISING THE LEVELS OF DIFFERENTIATION AND INNOVATION within the industry. This will be possible through the YOUNG’s training and specialization in the field of process and product innovation for the jewellery industry, as they will be able to support the companies’ process of modernization (lacking of technology) as well as the process of development of advanced services, in order to compete in an evolving market increasingly invaded by competitors.
3DGoldSkills aims at contributing to the increase of employability for students or young people who have recently completed a course of study in a professional school. This target will be achieved through two actions: students mobility and high school graduates mobility. The participating schools are professional-technical schools that have included in their curricula: courses related to chemistry applied to the gold sector (galvanic processes), courses related to rapid prototyping and new 3D technologies, courses related to design and art applied to the gold sector and to marketing / sales.
OBJECTIVES. The project’s main objective is to carry out mobility actions in the field of gold and silver for the young living in Arezzo. The planned activities are aimed at improving the participants’ life and soft-skills, that will help them to be included in the labour market and hard skills, which could be useable in the GOLDSMITH field. In this way, the local businesses will be able to find, within the local labour market, trained and highly Europeanized young people, who will be able to support their business decisions of high strategic impact.
The project will also recognize and validate the LO through linear and clear procedures in compliance with the ECVET. This will be possible thanks to the use of skills and credits recognition methods and tools through Learning units, which shall be capitalised and turned into education and / or training credits.
PROFILE AND NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
60 STUDENTS. 16/19 years old students attending State High Schools in Arezzo.
20 HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES / QUALIFIED. Young people who have obtained a vocational qualification or diploma related to gold industry, by not more than 12 months.
The project involves the participation of young people with physical disabilities or Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
ACTIVITIES. The activities of the project shall be as follows:
- Project management (divided into four main documents, enclosing the four key aspects of the sound management of the project: Control and Coordination Plan, Learning and Assessment Plan, Communication Management Plan, Dissemination and Valorisation Plan).
- Trainees preparation (language, technical, educational and cultural training).
- Internships identification and activation (following the selection of participants, the candidate-company MATCHING will be held in collaboration with the foreign parties, which will evaluate the participants profiles according businesses availability).
- Accompaniment of underage participants with physical disabilities or SLD by adequately prepared subjects (mainly the teachers working in the participating Institutes)
- Ongoing monitoring and ex post.
- Final assessment (outcomes, project, good practices).
- Dissemination and exploitation beyond the boundaries of the participating territories.
METHODOLOGY. The activated methodologies are, essentially, practical and aimed at achieving effective, efficient and repeatable models.
RESULTS AND IMPACT. At a general level, the project’s impact will be mainly on the school and training world (VET) thanks to: learning outcomes of participants in mobility; acquired skills (life, soft and hard skills); recognition of credits. The dissemination strategy will support the overall objectives and the specific activities of the project: in particular, the publication of the project OUTPUT (materials), but also OUTCOMES (results) and OUTREACH (impact).
LONG-TERM BENEFITS. In the long term, we expect: development of gold and silver district of the province of Arezzo; extension of the partnership abroad, both in terms of territories and skills; ability to implement exchange and cooperation projects thanks to the use of other funds (e.g. H2020, Private Finance for Energy Efficiency, other); as the Consortium, the opportunity of exerting influence over mobility management as well as over the adoption of EQAVET framework and ECVET credit recognition system.
