Unique project partnership would like to invite you to the UNIQUE Final Conference which will take place in Brussels on 12 May 2023, hosted by the European Association of Institutes for Vocational Training (EVBB).
The UNIQUE project aimed to reverse negative perceptions and attitudes towards LGBTIQ+ learners in Vocational Education and Training (VET). It focused on training VET Teachers/Trainers to effectively address incidents of discrimination within the VET environment and more openly discuss “sensitive” issues in the classroom with an emphasis on supporting their LGBTIQ+ learners.
The project undertook the following activities:
Mapping of LGBTIQ+ related discrimination in the partner countries and non-discriminatory educational strategies in VET
Development of an online Training Programme for VET Teachers/Trainers
Pilot implementation of a Unique Training Programme and introduction of the concept of Unique Ambassadors
Policy recommendations that will contribute to the respective agendas for gender equality in education
Despite the project's essential achievements throughout the last 2 and a half years, we still need to do more work on bringing VET institutes and LGBTIQ+ organizations closer through the implementation of two-folded visibility aiming at LGBTIQ+ inclusion in VET organizations and the VET environment in LGBTIQ+ organizations. Our recommendations focus both on the micro-level and on the local, national and European levels. The conference will discuss the piloted strategies further to encourage such visibility as well as potential new options.
Date: 12/05/2023 / 10:00 - 12:45 CET
