“Go deep in education: developing new competences for adults through game and community actions” is a follow up project of the previous strategic partnership “Go Deep!”, carried out within the Erasmus+ program, adult education strand, from 2015 to 2017. Its main outcome was the creation of a methodology useful to work on training and education, competences development and group relations throughout actions aimed to promote change in local communities.
This new project is aimed at improving the methodology and the tools connected with it: ie. game and online platform, integrating a specific focus in the adult education field, especially un- or under-qualified adults, thanks to the local work that the partners will implement in the 24-months project, and mutual exchange of best practices that will emerge in the different countries and socio-cultural contexts.
Within the specific target of un- and under-qualified adults, we identified 3 categories to which the project will mainly focus:
-Adults and young people from a migratory background, refugees or asylum seekers with a low qualification, or which have finished an high educational path but are not be able to use their title and competences in the countries where they live now;
– Adults who gave up their educational paths before the end;
– Unemployed/unoccupied adults or who lost their jobs at an advanced age which have consequently difficulties inserting in the labour market.
The activites planned during the project period (1 November 2017 – 31 October 2019) are the following:
– partners Kick Off Meeting (February 2018);
– training on how to use the “Go Deep!” methodology (May 2018);
– from June 2018 to August 2019:

Work on improving the methodology (guide development, translation, graphic development)
Corss staff moblities in different countries (each partner will send 2 staff operators to join the actions of other partners)
– Final meeting for closure of the project in order to formalize the best practices identified during the project and disseminating them (September 2019).
