The SOCIAL VALUE of VET. European Experiences in Esthetic and Well-being

Methodological approach

The proposed project is constructed through the application of an integrated and innovative Bottom- Up participatory approach based on the exchange of “practices” and on a relational system that characterizes both the management and the implementation methodology (MULTI-LAbs Program) . This method requires the creation of multi-disciplinary and inter-sectoral working groups (teams)   involved in the production of a new and common European training course for the qualification of Expert in Social Aesthetics. Within a heterogeneous, dynamic and flexible partnership, the primordial nucleus of a future intersectorial network, subjects coming from different environments and with different specific roles are compared and worked together. A partnership that intends to acquire strength and representativeness to obtain the recognition and / or improvement of training and employment policies in the various European countries that are currently characterized by significant development gaps.

    Action Plan

(A1) Project coordination and management activities (transversal)

(A2) Preparatory activity (information, training, selection of participants)

(A3) Implementation activities (No. 3 MULTI-LABS + Methodological guidelines of the training course + Recommendations with Agreement of Understanding for project follow-up). The project, through the implementation of bottom-up participatory and training processes based on the exchange of “practices”, on the involvement of multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary groups and on the simulation of the coordinated work experience as a team, intends to develop common methodological guidelines at European level at the base of the “expert in social aesthetics”, supported by a concrete proposal of Recommendations for the formal recognition of the same path at a social and political level and to improve accessibility to continuous improvement of qualifications and key competences.

(A4) Communication, networking and dissemination activities (transversal)

Expected impact

permanent dialogue, comparison and efficient exchange of “practices”, ideas and experiences, direct and participatory involvement of target groups and stakeholders.
