WE INVEST IN CONTINUOUS LEARNING
We support trainers, educators, consultants and individuals providing tools for a continuous updating of skills, according to individual needs and learning styles.
I met CIAPE in Berlin for the first time in 2018, and precisely during a European project aimed at sharing good practices and tools about work-based-learning. The following year we collaborated in the frame of an Erasmus+ KA3 project aimed at innovating career orientation services for the Generation Z. One year later, we worked together on a training about empathy, held in Denmark. Finally, we attended together a transnational training held in Spain about the use of video and gamified tools in class-based courses. The projects carried out together with CIAPE are always well organized, innovative, stimulating, and managed with enthusiasm and dedication. CIAPE's strength lies precisely in its collaborators, who passionately nurture this focus of knowledge and transfer it professionally to customers and partners. I am glad and pleased to work with them, since I share these values.
On November 2018, CIAPE organised for us a short-term joint staff training event “International study visit for VET teachers on workplace learning and cooperation with world of business” in the scope of the project “CREATOR: Experimental Approach to Teaching Entrepreneurship through Workplace Training”. I remember it as an amazing experience with CIAPE team: smart people and great cooperation. Three wonderful days in Rome supporting European VET teachers in their International learning experience!
Thanks to CIAPE, three students of the VET school Aterno-Manthonè adult course in Pescara (Abruzzo, IT) participated in the exciting European contest "Jobs of the Future", being awarded as the Italian winners. The initiative was launched by the FUTURE Time Traveller project consortium, of which CIAPE is part, and co-funded by the European Commission.
We at CRE.THI.DEV started our collaboration with CIAPE during the TECLO project, in 2015, soon recognised as a European best practice. Quickly, over the following years, our collaboration bloomed into a multitude of joint project proposals, many of which have become fruitful collaborations and common projects; as our two networks merged, we have jointly produced many beautiful ideas and innovative solutions for the Textile, Clothing, Leather, and Footwear (TCLF) sectors, in Europe and beyond (in Jordan, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia).
Knowledge-Training is cooperating with Ciape in projects and courses development. We met in a common understanding of quality in learning processes and human development, and we are experiencing a unique Scandinavian-Italian competence development among each-other.
The training course “Principles of Instructional Design for e-Learning” provides an introduction to e-learning characteristics, benefits, activities and resources needed to design and develop an e-learning project. It focuses on the main steps for the design: the needs, target and ask/topic analysis, the definition of learning objectives, sequencing, choice of learning strategies, storyboarding techniques and delivery formats.
Autobiographical methodologies represent a very important teaching method in non-formal and informal education; narrating own story is, actually, a way to enhance life experiences, which also produces implicit learning outcomes. The training course “Autobiographical Methodologies in Adult Education” offers to trainers the know-how to help learners to transform their own experiences into learning opportunities – starting from a picture or a personal object, to see recognised their informal learning outcomes and to deepen their own passion towards specific fields of study.
The main objective of the course “Gender Mainstreaming in Education and Training” is to make lifelong learning, education and training experts active players in supporting the implementation of gender mainstreaming in training activities. To this scope, participants are taught about the basic theoretical concept of gender mainstreaming and its most recent evolution in the European Union and they get familiar with practical methods and tools supporting the concrete implementation of gender mainstreaming in training activities designing, implementation and evaluation.
The course “European Projects Planning” provides information and tools to get familiar with the opportunities the European Commission offers to develop structured projects at international level. Participants acquire specific know how on tools needed to design effective project proposals, and to build European partnerships and internalisation processes.
