FETI (From Exclusion to Inclusion) Project – Thursday 3 February 2022 11 am – 12.30 pm
Implementing a Skills Development Package for Refugees and People Seeking Asylum
This session will describe FETI (From Exclusion to Inclusion) and showcase a skills development package used by SWAPWest (Scottish Wider Access Programme) to take this project forward.

FETI is an Erasmus+ project, funded by the European Commission, to improve the prospects of refugees and people seeking asylum by identifying their Personal, Social and Learning to Learn competence levels.

Where and how was the project carried out?

Together with SWAPWest in Scotland, the partners from Belgium. Norway, Italy and Turkey have researched local needs and resources currently available to assist with the development and implementation of a Skills Development Package, enabling adult education organisations to encourage self-assessment of the PSL competences by their target groups.

Target groups of refugees and people seeking asylum have taken part in pilot activities and an evaluation of the impact of this is currently being carried out.

This session will explain in more detail the processes undertaken and showcase the tool used by SWAPWest as a pilot model.

Who is this event for?

The event will be of interest to practitioners and researchers working within the college, university and third sector who are supporting refugees in a research, support, employability, admissions or advisory capacity.

This event will be led by Helen Cormack, Development Officer from SWAPWest and is jointly supported by SCAPP and Universities of Sanctuary
