• COURSE INFORMATION
SOFT SKILLS AND CREATIVITY TOWARDS INCLUSION course is aimed at education professionals who will be teaching emotional skills in the classroom. It is particularly suitable for teachers working with students with special educational needs, at risk of social exclusion, bullying and early school leaving at pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational training and adult literacy levels. These techniques are also effective in preventing school drop-out. The course will be taught in English by non-native speakers. The course focuses on the dynamics of creativity and the practical contents of the Soft Skills. Therefore, only a B1 level of English is expected from the participants.

SOFT SKILLS AND CREATIVITY TOWARDS INCLUSION course is an effective way in the process of delivering and enhancing soft skills in both teachers and students. Teachers need to have a strong work ethic and excellent interpersonal skills along with the ability to resolve conflicts, display a positive attitude and promote WELL-BEING as important PERSONALITY traits and career attributes in the workplace. The course will help develop the SOFT SKILLS and CREATIVITY of all students, supporting them in combating bullying and giving them great confidence to achieve success in ENTREPRENEURSHIP and thus in the job market. Furthermore, it will favour the development of personality traits and the social and communicative skills necessary for success in the job as a teacher or in the learning process as a student.

Creativity applied in the classroom, on the other hand, will help students to provide them with a support to fight academic underachievement, SCHOOL LEAVE, improve success in ENTREPRENEURSHIP and thus in the labour market. Moreover, creativity methodologies will provide schools with a new alternative methodology and more INNOVATION in the educational process, often not developed through the traditional educational system.

All this by means of:
- Development of teamwork and cooperation: The course offers participants the opportunity to carry out a group project and to represent their ideas orally, graphically and visually. It is a great opportunity for them to improve their language and communication skills.

- Increased confidence: The development of Soft Skills increases self-confidence and self-esteem. In addition, each person will learn about the risks of everyday life and how to deal with them.

- Development of artistic skills: The ability to communicate will increase considerably. Expressing oneself through crafts, actions, gestures, expressions and words will become easier and easier.

-Learning through a methodology based on soft skills and emotional intelligence enhances memory and improvisation skills. In addition, students will develop presentation and persuasion skills when they have to speak in public and perform under pressure, something really complicated nowadays for many young people and adults.

- Need for a more diverse educational background: It is no secret that the labour market is constantly evolving. Today's students will have very different jobs from those of their parents. Therefore, the tools provided by the course, such as organisation and time management, leadership and multitasking techniques, can help both teachers and children to manage their own feelings and the changing world, and to be able to respond creatively when required to do so.

• METHODOLOGY
The course is completely practical although it has its theoretical basis to create and understand educational techniques and dynamics in relation to soft skills. Participants will perform body and art-craft activities, creative games, experience educational techniques and plan and teach their own lessons. At the end of the course, participants will work on an individual action plan that details how they will introduce the new techniques learned in their practices so as to promote the essential soft skills and creative abilities required at school and daily life.

Our experienced trainer will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking and cultural activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practices and establish professional cooperation and links. These activities will take part not only participants of the course but also other participants from different courses attended by the company. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills to create and manage a proposal with real success.

At the end of the course, there is an evaluation where participants can assess the course. The course will provide the participants an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.

These GREAT NETWORKING WEEKS will involve participants from all courses of the company. Every participant of each training course will have the opportunity to spend some funny time and to meet more people than in another simple course. All courses of the company include some cultural, sport and historical networking activities during the week. Activities will involve participants from other courses of the company in order to create a great environment and to find the perfect partner for future projects in common. Networking activities are designed to deepen the relationship between all participants. Moreover, in all editions we’re going to run different Erasmus + courses at the same time, just giving you different options to come with other colleagues from the same school and to enjoy together in free and optional activities that our company offers during the week.

Specifically speaking, participants are invited to spend a great networking day on Thursday in some relevant place of the city. During the morning time we’ll meet all participants together for a networking session where you’ll be able to briefly explain your own school and your KA1 project and be able to find suitable partners for future eTwinnings or even KA2 projects. In order to do that you should bring with you a presentation of your own KA1 Erasmus + Project. Moreover, you’ll have the chance to discover the culture of the country you’re visiting thanks to a great optional culture runned during afternoon time. This activity day will connect participants of different courses to match perfect partners for future relationships in European Projects. Furthermore, at the end of the week, all actors of the different courses will be asked to participate in a lunch in some special place in the city.

We aim to get an effective follow-up to stimulate peer networking, to keep in touch and to share opinions, experiences and practices for unlimited with European tools like eTwinning and other different ways of connection, such as e-mail, individual Skype calls, phone, WhatsApp or Facebook Group.
