More information ...

ttg team training GmbH is an informal provider of adult education and vocational education and training (VET). We are located in the south of Germany in Tübingen and we also have branch offices in different cities around.

ttg offers vocational education and training, ICT, job services, intercultural courses, and general continuing education as well as consulting and coaching. Moreover, we also run trainer programmes, team development programmes and programmes for pupils. In our ICT-Center and Business Center we have about 150 ICT workplaces for learners, who want to improve their ICT competences.

Target groups and partnerships: Participants include men and women, job seekers, immigrants, young and older people. Trainers, consultants and employees of other adult education providers participate in activities and projects. We have been carrying out cooperative projects on a local, national and transnational level: ttg has built a wide regional network by initiating and coordinating projects concerning, for example, marketing strategies and quality management (supported by the ESF).

ttg has memberships in local and regional initiatives and working committees with high dissemination potential and valorisation can be based on work with partners and their networks in 14 EU countries.

By joining in and guiding projects at a European level, ttg team training has developed a European wide profile and improved its intercultural competence. It has taken the challenge of posing questions like “What is Europe for us?” and “What does a European perspective include for our work, our organisation and the people working for us?” ttg has been part of and has been coordinating several Grundtvig LLL projects during the last years dealing with topics such as marketing competences, strategic perspectives, business startups and culture traditions and intends to further broaden its transnational activities.

More information ...

Telšiai Adult School is an educational institution that provides qualitative formal and informal education for adults who want to be accepted in the changing labor market and to become more active in the society. Institution offers various forms of formal learning for persons who want to gain basic or secondary education in spite their social background and living environment. Pedagogues who work at this school make the conditions for students for easy communication, help them to create and participate in the cultural activities. School‘s community prepares various learning/teaching programmes, applies different learning/teaching methods in order to help students to develop independent learning and information management skills.

A person often completes one of his basic needs – self expression – by joining the work sphere. This is why career guidance becomes one of the most important parts of education. It‘s main purpose is helping to choose a career path despite student’s age, sex, social status or exclusion. Recently, career guidance system is being applied at schools. Career guidance coordinator covers information, counseling and guidance services helping persons in different age categories to choose their own pursuits in the area of education, training and employment and to undertake an active role in the development of their own professional career.

Our school lacks unified career guidance system as much as most of Lithuania’s secondary schools and VET’s. We also lack modern career guidance methods and means. TSM hopes to improve competence of teachers, share good experience with other countries and fill existing gaps in career guidance practice by participating in this project.

More information ...

The Carinthian International Club (CIC) is a non-profit organization comprised of 26 member companies and more than 400 individual members.

Its goal is to support the successful social integration of qualified foreign employees working for companies and training institutions located throughout Carinthia.

It seeks to accomplish its goal by giving these men and women the feeling that they’re not just working in Carinthia, but that they and their families are welcome there.

CIC therefore provides its members with…

  • information about life and work in Carinthia
    e.g., Welcome Package & 1-to-1 Consultations
  • networking opportunities
    e.g., Coffee Morning & Evening Networking Sessions
  • support services for families
    e.g., Playgroup & Summertime Childcare Program

Regarding the latter, CIC has played a pivotal role in the establishment of the first private, denominational international day school in Carinthia. The International School of Carinthia (ISC) is scheduled to open its doors to young learners from around the world in September 2013. Over the next eight years, it will expand its curriculum to cover grades 1 – 12.

Additionally, CIC has recently collaborated with area businesses and training institutions to develop an HRM tool called the Diversity Compass. This modular in-company training can be used by managers to promote cross-cultural understanding in the workplace and thereby enhance team and organizational performance.
