-GW – Generazione Web project (Web generation) - ICT Innovative Competences for Teaching – a regional project aimed at disseminating and enhancing the skills of primary and high school teacher for the optimal use of new forms of teaching in digital mode.


Ikaros has developed important projects that facilitated international mobility. Thanks to the participation in these projects Ikaros has obtained an important expertise in the field of formal and informal skills and competences certifications through ECVET system and other types of certification.

-Ikaros is a partner in the KA2 Strategic partnership projectcare4mobility: Promoting the Efficiency of VET Learner Mobilities in health and social care professions by implementing ECVET”, that aims at promoting student and staff mobilities to increase their intercultural and linguistic competences as well as their access to the European labour market. The project will facilitate the multilateral recognition of learning outcomes (acquired during a mobility period) between the participating institutions by implementing ECVET instruments.

-I-CARE project: it has been one of the ECVET Pilot Projects (2nd generation) funded by the European Commission and represented an experimental application of the ECVET system. It was dedicated to “Improving Mobility and Career Paths for Personal Care and Social Workers” and its objective was to support the full labour market integration and human capital development in Personal Care and Social Work by increasing interoperability among different countries and learning contexts. Partners analyzed existing qualification systems in the field of personal care and social work in their respective countries with the objective to develop a recognition model, thus encouraging mutual recognition of training and qualifications. The project targeted those interested in the development of flexible training solutions, in facilitating mobility and access to work and in addressing the need for qualified professionals in the care sector (VET providers, labour market services and organizations in the field, social partners and authorities).

- CareVET is Erasmus+ KA2 strategic partnership in VET sector. The main objective of the project is to extend the offer of high quality learning opportunities, delivering an up-to-date pioneer curriculum in the field of Supported/Assisted Living. The curriculum is going to address the latest’s technological advancements in the assisted living domain, as well as role playing, social networks building around people with disabilities, and self advocacy skills that can be utilized by the supportive living operators(SLOs) to improve the beneficiaries’ well being. CareVET promotes work-based learning (WBL) and involves the trainees working in supported living residencies being supervised by an experienced SLO of the hosting organization. The e-learning platform will also offer features for self-learning and personalization tools and wizards for role playing scenarios design, application, as well as evaluation of the beneficiaries. The project is intended to be an attractive curriculum that will combine social care, ICT and wellness competencies.

- “Recognition of skills” Pilot project: it has been developed with the Polytechnic of Milan which is one of the main authorities in the field of innovative project for supporting public body in order to develop political and technical approach of certification and recognition. The project has been about recognition of informal and non-formal skills in respect of QRSP (frameworks of regional training standard); Ikaros has researched about the administrative, secretarial and health sector skills). The project results have been presented to Lombardy Region in order to improve the regional system of recognition of competences.

The youngsters take part in practical assignments, simulations, coaching and short internships. So far 92 Learning Week projects have been submitted and approved, attended by more than 2,300 students, and involved 25 different educational institutes and many other different subjects in the area (companies, universities, ..).


Fondazione Et Labora has activated a counseling service for teenagers at risk of social exclusion at its headquarters in Bergamo in 2006, that is active still today. The counseling is open to both students, their families and the teaching staff, since unfavourable situation of adolescents affects also their academic path, and especially with the aim to identify educational strategies that may foster academic success. Interventions are structured during school hours by psychologists experts in management of relational dynamics.

In 2010 Ikaros Foundation had initiated a project for the implementation of Training Services for Autonomy of Minors aimed at adolescents in situations of social disadvantage. The project aims to provide systematic re-motivation of adolescents for the reconstruction of the experience factors, such as the context in which the youngsters live that prevented, slowed down or distorted their successful development. Throughout the educational program the minor is supported by a tutor, the educational reference figure of the project. The interviews are conducted by professionals with experience of at least three years in educational services for adolescents. After a careful analysis of the needs of the adolescent and of the objectives of the intervention done by the tutor and the coordinator of the service, the activities responsive to the needs of the individual and a personalized educational plan is drawn up. The project was born as a pilot project that found its realization and self-sustainability in the Municipalities of Bergamo that still use this service on a fee basis.

"NEET Work" project is aimed at NEET, that is young people aged from 16 to 19, who neither study nor work as they have abandoned school or are at risk of dropping out of their studies. The project aims at offering them a short and professionalizing training finalized at providing employment (to 18- 19 year-olds) or to bring them closer to the training already undertaken by increasing their chances of academic success. The following activities have been implemented: career guidance interviews and analysis of their attitudes and propensities, professional courses lasting an average of 80 hours, traineeships, guidance and active job search workshops, study groups led by tutors that supported the young in recovery of school subjects.
