maven partner staffFrom January the 10th, 2011 to January the 13th, 2011; Kick-off meeting Maven was set in Cawsand, Cornwall.

The word Maven comes from the Hebrew, via Yddish, and means: “One who understands, based on accumulation of knowledge”.

According to its linguistic roots, Maven Leonardo Learning Partneship aims to promote improved the acces to Vocational Education and Training (VET) by the migrants and minority community.

The project will last until the half of 2012 and will take place in several European countries where the learners will be given a vocational training about job, they can create networks, and sharing problems and solutions trough the “My story method”, already used in the Grundtvig program “M3”.

For adult migrants is not easy to access to a vocational training, but we strongly believe that adult migrants are a great resource for the migrants communities and for the locals as well.

The objectives of the project are: to create a structure in our VET systems to capture the experience ideas, and recommendations of minority/ migrant learner. To share the Histories and to raise new awareness among training providers and support agencies. To increase take up of VET in our local area, by providing information and motivation to the potential learners.

The first Maven LLP will be host by CESIE in Palermo from the 12th to the 16th of April.

The Maven partners of CESIE are: Point Europa (U.K.), Fekete Sereg ( Hu), Youth development and integration association Strim ( Pl), Asociacion cultural y deportiva la Hoya (Es), France Amerique Latine ( Fr), Cubic Cultur und Building im Context (Aut).
