VIE: Courses

VIRTUAL INCLUSIVE EDUCATION offers the social sector and its agents multiple courses to promote learning and enhance the development of digital and critical competences, in order to improve not only the quality of the actions and activities of social entities, but also the qualification of their staff and beneficiaries.

These courses have been jointly designed by teachers and experts on the topics they deal with; we are especially proud to have had the support of true beneficiaries to design their contents, achieving a close and accessible style while still addressing the key issues they especially need and find important.

As an example, if you choose the COURSE FOR MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES, you’ll find that expert pedagogues, adult teachers, and associations of migrants and refugees have participated in its creation, which allowed us to develop a highly impactful course to promote the inclusion of newcomers in our society and break down the barriers of hatred and racism.

You can see a detailed description of each course below:

Courses to manage your entity and its projects

Courses to train yourself and your work team

Volunteers Learning

The course that you are going to start is intended to offer volunteers -or those who aspire to become one- the possibility of acquiring, updating, completing, or expanding their specific knowledge and skills to work on social projects for the inclusion of migrants or refugees through formal and non-formal learning. We offer you the possibility of improving your capabilities of helping those who need it the most, and with that reaching a fairer and equal society.

This course gathers contents and methodological strategies created through the experience of migrant persons themselves, and those compiled over the years by social entities expert in the inclusion of segregated or marginalized groups. Through the exchange of experiences and shared effort, we offer you a course that we believe is useful and effective to -regardless of your previous experience- make a difference in migrants’ and their neighbors’ lives. This course will also allow you to reinforce the “COURSE OF LITERACY FOR ADULTS” by continuing the training it proposes with specific contents and examples in the field of volunteering. This course, especially aimed at local adults (native or those who already established in Europe), is a tool capable of advancing in the curriculum defined in European Order ECD/651/2017 of July 5th, which regulates basic education and its curriculum for adults in the field of management of the Ministries of Education, Culture, and Sports (or their counterparts) in European countries.

Thus, the purpose of the course “SPECIFIC TRAINING AND INCLUSION” is to improve your volunteering abilities in social entities, but also to help you develop tools for the critical analysis of your own environment and encourage your direct participation in volunteering as a mechanism to build a more inclusive, diverse, and fair society.

Courses to improve your and your beneficiaries’ education

Adults Learning

This course offers its users (persons between 18 and 35 years old) the opportunity of acquiring, updating, completing, or expanding their knowledge and skills for their personal and professional development through both formal and non-formal education. We want to offer you the possibility of developing basic training, and expanding and renewing your knowledge, skills, and abilities permanently.

Thus, the purpose of the course “TRAINING BASIC SKILLS” is to improve your professional qualification and develop your personal skills and participation in social, cultural, political, and economic life. We specifically offer a basic learning compatible with the learning of EPAS and other official adult training centers in Europe which will enable you, once completed, to obtain official adult education certifications. But this course also helps you in developing tools for the critical analysis of your environment, and encourages you to directly participate in volunteering as a mechanism to build a more inclusive, diverse, and fair society.

The course proposes an innovative learning, not focused on memory or isolated facts (like outdated education) but on the development of key competences through a virtual and customized learning that you can carry out from your home or even from your smartphone. The European Parliament (highest body of the European Union) stated in Recommendation 2006/962/EC that these competences are a combination of knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes appropriate to the context: this means that we do not only intend you to learn new things, but also learn how to do those things (skills) and how you face them (attitudes).

Migrants and Refugees Learning

This course is intended to serve as a guiding tool for migrants who wish to live, work, and settle in a new society, while also providing help and support to professionals from social organizations that work in the reception and counseling tasks for non-EU citizens.

Its content is aimed at people who are under immigration laws, and has been developed thanks to the joint work of volunteers and experts. It explains the duties and rights of both newcomers and the authorities in all areas. In general terms, it aims to contribute to the inclusion of migrants and refugees by including more specific materials on some of areas, but for a more personalized information and advice, we recommend you to contact a legal service and/or a specialized entity.

The contact data of all public entities cited throughout the guide in each area are again specified in the last pages of each of the Didactic Units, plus a brief list of associations that can provide you legal advice, guidance, and other services aimed at newcomers.

One of the more useful objectives of the course “SPECIFIC PROFESSIONAL TRAINING” is to obtain, once completed, a certificate recognized by the entities participating in the project, designed under the European Erasmus Plus Programme. This certificate provides information on different inclusion mechanisms, while also offering resources for the real improvement of the situation of the migrant person.
