SALE is a neverending story!
After 2 years of continuoulsy hard effort and in-depth research we are saying goodbye as a consortium to the SALE project. The official project end date was the 30th of September 2016 and we are happy to have achieved all project objectives successfully! In the course of our sustainability plan – also an output of SALE – all of us ensure an ongoing update of the SALE training material and engagement with target groups. Whenever questions arise get in touch with us and feel free to ask!
SALE Training Material
The effort was worth it! 30 hours of training for unemployed acadmics in order to improve their social media skills and knowledge to find a job are ready. You can NOW download the training material in the section “product” in 5 different languages. In order to get more information on the material or in the case you would like to get trainer guides please just get in touch with the responsible institution which you can find in the “consortium information”.
Look look! You can now download the brand new SALE newsletter right here on the left side. The newsletter has been written individually for each participating country in the SALE project after the piloting phase. Feedback from trainees was very important to us, which is why we would like to say “thank you” once more to everybody who helped in the successful implementation of the first SALE training. Check the newsletter for more information on the piloting phase in each country.
Regional Roundtable UNITED KINGDOM
The SALE training, developed by a consortium of 9 leading European institutions, successfully took place in the UK between April and June 2016. The participants learnt to use social media to increase their employability and find jobs online. The training, which also included online sessions, covered the following topics:
- What companies look for in candidates (Module 2)
- How to create your personal brand offline (Module 3)
- Analysis of social media tools used for job seeking (Module 4)
- How to create your personal brand online (Module 5)
- Networking – creating networks with people and companies (Module 6)
- How to search efficiently for jobs on social media platforms (Module 7)
In addition to increasing graduates’ employability skills, trainers were also trained so they can pass on the materials and results from the SALE project throughout the region.
SALE Meeting in Lisbon
As the SALE project is ending this year, all partners met for a last time especially to discuss what has been achieved and which are the pending tasks until the official end in October 2016. The meeting took place from the 12th to the 13th of May in Lisbon and was hosted by the local Partner “Aidlearn”. Most importantly partners have been discussing the evaluations of the previous implemented pilot training in each member country. Adaptions of the training material have been made and the finalized material will be online as soon as possible in the section “products”.
Sale Pilot Training in participating countries
Since the beginning of April 2016 the SALE project is in the piloting phase. Thereby each institution invited 15 trainees and 5 trainers to the interactive face-to-face/online SALE training. Participants will give us feedback through a specifically created evaluation system, in order to improve the training material according to trainees and trainer´s needs.
