BOOST - Global Competence For Advancing Social Inclusion and Career Path of Vulnerable Women

Description of the project

According to the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment global competence framework, global competence is a multi-dimensional construct that requires a combination of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values successfully applied to global issues or intercultural situations.

 

People able to mobilise their global competence live harmoniously in multicultural communities; thrive in a changing labour market; use media platforms effectively and responsibly; advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); pursuit lifelong learning and stay curious, open. With a focus on fostering global competences, BOOST – Global competence for advancing social inclusion and career path of vulnerable women, an ERASMUS+ project, targets women, currently facing vulnerability due to their migrant background and cultural differences. The project also addresses professionals that work to support these women, such as trainers, career counsellors, social workers, and intercultural mediators.
