Social economy gathers diverse profiles of professionals working in associations, foundations, mutual insurance companies and cooperatives. As far as associations are concerned, 2 million professionals work with 16 million volunteers in France in 2015. Their professional career usually combines voluntary and paid work. More than 40% are qualified workers (at least BAC +2 according to a study published in 2015) but other professionals may have passed professional diploma or qualification (such as the BAFA or BAFD). Professionals are mainly social workers but also social pedagogues (in the sense of Social pedagogy,). Whatever their educative and/or professional background, they are not trained to support learners from disadvantaged backgrounds/with fewer opportunities – a relevant social and educative support is needed. The Key Tutors offers both pedagogical tools & training for tutors in the field of Key competences.
The iriv is the French partner of the Vintage project, a Key Activity 2 project (Lifelong Learning programme) offering a strategy to enhance VET integrated language learning. Initiated by the Foundation ECAP (Switzerland, leader), this project gathers six European countries in Germany (Arbeit und leben Hamburg e.V), in France (iriv conseil), in Italy (Universita per Stranieri di Perugia & Centro territoriale permanente di Gallarate), in Greece (Militos Emerging Technologies & Services) and in Norway (European Center for Women and Technology).
Together with Enda Europe, iriv initiated the Di&Di project- Enhancing Diversity and struggling against Discrimination in 5 European countries: France (leader), Germany, Bulgaria, Italy and Switzerland. Transfer of innovation of the Diversité + project directed by Enda Europe (2007-2012) and former projects Migrapass (2010-2012) and Mediateur Interculturel (2009) initiated by iriv, the Di&Di project is a Leonardo da Vinci project aiming at designing a tool and strategy to enhance diversity in the labour market by identifying situations of discriminations. It addresses two specific target groups: qualified youngsters and low qualified women, both sharing a migratory background. Professionals in charge of integration and/or diversity and working with migrants are involved in both the training and mentoring.
