The Projectnews

Project Summary

UP&UP -UPscaling trainers’ and teacher’s competencies on gender stereotype to UPscaling the awareness among young people and fight the gender based violence is a project that would be define a new methodology and a training package available online aims to increase skill’s educators, teachers, tutors, trainers and citizenship skills of young (especially those living in outskirts and internal areas) on a specific topic concerning respect for diversity, with particular reference to gender differences.

The project departs from the assumption that only teaching of teachers and realization of a joint path with young people is possible breaking down stereotypes. The title of the UP&UP project summarizes this innovative proposal which, starting from the experience carried out of the partners, intends to raise both competencies of educators and young people.

Thanks to an international comparison, the partners of this project will define products shared training and export in all educational contexts (schools, associations, training organizations).

See below our “Intellectual Outputs (IO)“.

IO 1 - Stereotypes analysis and good practices to break them down

This output is the result of the first phase of the partnership’s work. An analysis grid will be prepared through which each partner will carry out an analysis of the presence of stereotypes within formal learning contexts (schools, training organizations, etc.) informal and non-informal formal (places of aggregation of young people, working environments, associations, etc.) through the support of educators. A meeting with the preliminary educators will be carried out during which the path drawn by the project and the analysis grid will be illustrated. At the end of the analysis, the results will be shared and discussed and the recurring stereotypes identified both among young people and among the educators themselves.

IO 2 - Gender Based Violence training for educators

This second product is the training package for educators, teachers, trainers and tutors who are in daily contact with young people. From the point of view of the implementation of the project it is the result of the second line of activity “development of a package for educators”.
It is a toolkit for educators to recognize, prevent and address gender-based violence in learning contexts. The toolkit consists of learning units and tests aimed at verifying the acquisition of these units.

IO 3 - UP&UP Model for ALL

This OI, in addition to the networking of the training package, provides for the creation of video material that will be shot from the early stages of the project related to the learning units. This production will be carried out by a video-maker present in each partner country who will resume the planned meetings and laboratories (described in the first two IOs) to enrich the training and information material made available.

IO 4 – Evaluation tool-kit

The activity is divided into two types of activity:
1) A first phase concerns the construction of evaluation resources internal to the project, concerning the raising of technical and transversal skills that educators have raised following the training package.
2) Monitoring and evaluation with the collection of evidences, aimed at assessing changes in behaviour and attitudes towards gender stereotypes and in measuring acquired sensitivity regarding the phenomenon of gender violence and the use of hate speech. At the end of this phase we intend to make available a kit of methodologies and techniques to measure with a counterfactual assessment methodology if and to what extent the adoption of the training package within formal and non-formal learning contexts generate
changes among direct (young) and indirect recipients (stakeholders and key actors).
