SIDE – Supporting Innovative models for Deaf youth Empowerment

Project n. 2016-3-AT02-KA205-001739

The aim of the project is to develop a blended learning model based on visual languages/arts and aimed at the acquisition of key and professional competences by deaf young people, so to support their transition from education to work.

Deaf youth, like other persons with disabilities, struggle in today’s labour market and have more probabilities to become NEETs, due poor education, increase in skills mismatch, more jobs requiring higher qualification.

In order to improve employment situation for deaf youth there is the need for educational and vocational programmes which are accessible and valorize the talents of deaf people.

The blended learning model addressed to deaf youth includes face-to-face non formal training activities (outdoor training, coaching, Impro-theatre) and distance learning activities based on professional didactic modules developed through videos and sign language in a virtual environment. Through non formal learning methods, the model will provide the acquisition of high relevant key and transversal competences for empowerment and social inclusion; through virtual learning they will acquire specific professional competences to valorize their attitudes and to have more opportunities for accessing to job.

In order to create an open learning environment for innovative education, the project promotes the following tools and methodologies:

  • ICTs to make available information and learning to a larger target group outside of the formal educational and VET system;
  • non-formal education, which opens to ICT innovation because it is characterised by a high degree of flexibility and openness to change and innovation in its organisation, pedagogy and delivery modes;
  • non-formal education, which caters to diverse and context-specific learning needs of young people (especially the ones with special needs).

 This project is 24 months ERASMUS+ YOUTH project which started in March 2017 and will end in February 2019.

The SIDE partnership includes six organizations from four EU countries (Austria, Cyprus, Italy and Slovakia).
