The Forward kick-off meeting was held on February 7, 8 and 9 at SURT headquarters in Barcelona. The partners from Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Romania and Austria met with the host partner to launch the project.
The objective of the FORWARD project is to build a methodology for the recognition and development of skills and validate it in a pilot test with 150 immigrant women.
Finally, a handbook and pedagogical materials for guidance professionals will be published.
The methodology of these materials will facilitate the identification, validation and development of the competences of each woman so that she is able to improve her social inclusion and employment in the host country.
The meeting has been an interesting opportunity to learn about the different national contexts and work from there to agree on definitions of key terms and lay the foundations of the FORWARD model.
