Current EU Projects: (TOBP) Transcultural Open Bages Platform

TOBP – Transcultural Open Badges Platform for Migrant’s Transition Mentoring in ELFC

Introduction

TOBP project connects strategic partners in setting up new standards for skill recognition for migrants in the field of Transcultural Early Life Family Care (TELFC). TOBP’s aims are to co-create an open badge platform a) to enable the validation of foreign and informal qualifications and b) to provide education and training in the context of the newly developed job profile “transition mentor”. It thereby addresses the skill gaps and shortages of qualified professionals in TELFC.
AIMS of TOBP:
1) To establish a transcultural competence + job profile for Transition Mentors (TM), mainly on the basis of best practice examples from new and established migration countries
2) To enable flexible learning pathways with work-, problem-, game- and experience based, digitalized learning materials.
3) To create an Open Badge (digital awards) environment by establishing an informal recognition space validating the variety of prior, informal, non-formal and formal learning outcomes
4) To launch an online European Networking Platform on Transition Mentoring by professionalizing the TELFC sector.
