PODCAST TRAINING COURSES

Co-Funded by the European Union Vertical Logo

 Five partners from Cyprus, Romania, Ireland, Greece and Spain work to develop an innovative approach to education that will use the medium of podcasting to integrate NEETs in education and training. We believe that through podcasting, NEETs will be able to develop an individualised career pathway that makes the most of the knowledge and skills they already possess; and can further develop their digital skills and literacies so that they can re-engage in the labour market. Our project attempts to build the self-confidence of learners so that they become more open to outside ideas and education offerings and to train the NEETs to make their own podcasts, from the comfort of their own homes.

With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.

– Dalai Lama

Many of young adults between 18 and 35 years old are referred to as NEETs – Not in Education, Employment, or Training. In fact, the EU average percentage of NEETs stood at 17.6% (Eurostat) and this is almost 1 in 5 young adults in some countries. At the same time, studies showed us that 44% of respondents from the same age group said that they listen to podcasts regularly and the podcast is likely to develop into a crucial, if not dominant part of the audio world in the not-so-distant future.

Our aim is to renew the sense of self, purpose and confidence among NEETs through the In-service Training Programme for Youth Workers, Mental Health Toolkit, Podcasts Curriculum and the Online Space and Community of Practice. In this way we follow to increase awareness among youth professionals regarding the barriers and obstacles that NEETs face when it comes to engagement and to help them gain the necessary skills to have their voice heard and earn an income.

How we work

We create an innovative learning environment for teaching and learning digital and personal development skills.

Because we chose innovative teaching methods, our learners can select the lesson that fits with their learning style.
