As the main goal of the project is to develop digital pedagogical competences of C-VET educators in the social sector, the impacts foreseen in the target groups (social work trainers and social work practitioners) are that they perceive themselves as ‘digitally ready’ for e-social work and practices. This means their ability to access, adapt and create new social and educational intervention methods using ICTs and to deliver technology-mediated social work and community work practices.
In terms of VET structures, SOCIAL CONNECTIONS expects to strengthen the links between VET organizations and NGOs and to support the incorporation e-social work skills in VET curricula - this will be achieved through partner organizations as they will introduce the IOs produced in their regular offer, but exploitation efforts will be made to reach other organizations as well.
At a higher level, SOCIAL CONNECTIONS aims to have an impact on the coverage of ICT opportunities and tools to a wide range of social practitioners and trainers. Besides, as a long-term impact, it is expected that the project contributes to contrast exclusion and isolation of vulnerable housebound persons, making them feel engaged and with increased wellbeing.
