Launch of the CREATION elearning platform to train the trainer in culture and arts entrepreneurship for marginalised adult women
~July 2021 - CREATION is a European-wide consortium comprising partners from Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Ireland and Germany (http://creationproject.eu/#Partners).
The aim of this Erasmus+ project is to provide practical training in cultural entrepreneurship for under-represented groups, and specifically women from marginalised backgrounds.
The project aims to foster more opportunities for marginalised women to engage with cultural entrepreneurship, broaden their professional opportunities, create better prospects for independent work and promote integration into their host communities (http://creationproject.eu/).
An essential component of the CREATION project is an online training package (train-the-trainer) comprising three different modules, aimed at support workers and all those who work with groups of marginalised women. The three online training modules are:
1) The cultural and creative industries as a viable economic force – types and characteristics of cultural enterprises,
2) Using participatory, community-based co-working learning resources and self-directed learning resources to build basic entrepreneurial skills, and
3) The changing role of educators within diverse communities of online learners.
These modules are accompanied by a course manual in pdf format, to assist those trained with the content and the instructional approach of the elearning platform (http://elearning-creationproject.eu/IO5/).
In response to a recent call for interested stakeholders to engage with the elearning platform, the CREATION team received over 150 requests to register for the online training. Upon completion of the training, participants will receive a certification in the form of an Open Badge.
As of 1st July 2021, the elearning platform is open for all to explore at http://elearning-creationproject.eu/
