Soft Skills Outside of a school Learning environment

Soft Skills Outside of a school Learning environment

SOUL is an Erasmus + project implemented by 7 partners from 6 European countries: Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, Spain, Iceland, France. Its main objective is to provide information on the effects that social isolation measures undertaken by EU countries to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have had on children aged 6-12. Furthermore, the aim of the project is to provide modern and innovative methodologies and tools that will help to assess the transferable skills of children outside the school context, as well as to empower education professionals to support them within non-formal education settings.

Expected results

  • Increased awareness of the effects of social isolation in children and identification of children transferable skills deficits due to COVID-19
  • Improvement of the skills of adult trainers by providing them with the tools for the application of an innovative methodology for the assessment of transversal skills
  • Target groups are given free access to use the Toolbox to support the development of soft skills
  • The staff of the partner institutions is trained in the use of the evaluation methodology and training tools created thanks to the project
