In Denmark, the teams have been working hard on completing the final contents for the toolbox. This includes pedagogical descriptions of tools, and ensuring that all the tools are user friendly, comprehensive and relevant for end users.
The course guide and course PowerPoint have also been prepared, to assist our teams in running Live2Work pilot courses. These courses will not only test the materials produced, but also the methodology recommended to running successful workshops.
Along with this, the Danish team has been busy contacting municipalities, companies and organisations involved in situations of professional vulnerability, to ensure dissemination of on-going work and results. We are preparing for the piloting workshops to be held in Denmark, and looking forward to running courses here in Copenhagen to receive feedback. During our work with development of tools, we have sought out feedback from experts and peers, active in the field of unemployed adults, and positive psychology, to ensure that we are on the right track.
The team aims to end up with a comprehensive course guide, that will assist other professionals in running Live2Work workshops with their peers and colleagues, further spreading the tools, methods and ideas for successfully working with the creation of new life projects.
After the piloting workshop in Denmark, the team is now compiling a report, to better understand the needs of the end users, and how to adapt the materials to suit these. The feedback has been extremely positive, with test persons showing great enthusiasm for the tools, as well as giving valuable professional insight, into their needs, when dealing with our target groups.
The next period will be spent perfecting the final versions and preparing the final multiplier events.
