The aim of T-ISSE project is to respond to the increasing need of competitiveness in individuals, who are developing or will develop their activities in the social enterprise and small business sectors.

T-ISSE will assist in gaining skills in creativity and innovation and applying them to their businesses or their social enterprises.

T-ISSE will also assist facilitators of start-up or growth businesses or social enterprises coach their clients in making their companies more reactive to day-to-day changes and pressures.

The proposal is divided in 2 parts:
1) Identify and share the different capabilities that these small businesses and social enterprises require to be able to innovate and be creative, looking at their abilities to recognise their market, the demands of their clients and to change, to create and to innovate.

2) Identify and share through a web based platform, training modules to help individuals acquire the skills needed to be innovative in small businesses and social enterprises.

This process will benefit these individuals since it will become an instrument for gaining knowledge and will put at their disposal a wide range of training and vocational modules that can be used and applied to help be more reactive to the needs of the sector. As a bi-product it will prove to these individuals the continual requirement for education and continual development in their appointed sectors.

While legislation and culture in Europe ensure equal rights for women, this is not reflected in the reality for women on a day to day basis.  There is still a lack of women higher levels of business and across all business sectors.  In addition, there is still a substantial gap in pay. This project aims to improve this by developing a web site where women will showcase their experiences, skills, abilities and the difficulties they have faced. It will provide a learning and mentoring tool which is a source of knowledge, inspiration and support.

SD Teaching

Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for future generations. It ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social challenges facing humanity.

The topic of the project has a common importance across all European countries: personal development, environment protection, sustainable actions and behaviours and citizen responsibilities towards society and future generations. Those are elements to be transmitted and developed at all educational levels and that should be integrated in to all EU training system. The SD TEACHING Grundtvig Learning Partnership Project will post and share information, news, meeting, activities, results about the project developed by the partner organisations from Turkey, Italy and UK.

Green skills have to be improved in the entire work force, in order to build a resource-efficient and competitive economy, and to reinforce the competitive advantage of business, in particular SMEs. VET training can be the shortest way for people in need of re-qualification and re-training to acquire the skills needed by the labour market and to be reintegrated in the workforce.

INTEGREEN intends to study the service sector’s professions (commercial, logistics, administration, sales…) and those professions that, due to their subordinate/administrative/commercial positions, do not have a direct link with environmental protection, but still need to be informed and have knowledge on topics such as waste management, energy saving, and sustainable actions in daily work to better suit the needs of the professionals they support, work for or work with.
