Om oss

EMKIT2 är en Bemyndigande Verktygslåda för Utbildare för Utvecklingen av den Sociala och Kulturella Kompetensen och Mediekunskap för Lågutbildade Migrantkvinnor.

Bakgrund

Migrantkrisen i EU har en direkt reflektion på sysselsättningsgraden hos migranter. Gapet i deltagande på arbetsmarknaden på EU-nivå mellan EU-medborgare och migranter har ökat under 2014 (Eurostat – Migrant Integrationsstatistik-Sysselsättning). Under de senaste åtta åren har aktivitetsgraden (% av aktiva personer jämfört med totala befolkningen) av EU-28 befolkningen av icke-EU-länder noterat systematiskt lägre aktivitetsgrader än hos EU-medborgare. Sedan 2009, har detta gap ökat märkbart (3%-satser). Även arbetslösheten per kön och utbildningsbakgrund är högre för migrerande kvinnor med låg utbildningsbakgrund (Eurostat). Kulturella, sociala hinder, låga färdigheter och analfabetism och mediekunskap avskräcker dessa kvinnor från att aktivt söka jobb. Som ett resultat är trycket enormt på välfärdssystemen och samhället i EU-28-länderna

emkit2 Mål:

EMKIT kommer att bemyndiga lågutbildade migrantkvinnor genom att utveckla 42 digitala verktyg för utbildare för att implementera innovativa workshops med vilka de kan utveckla den sociala, medborgerliga, kulturella och mediekunskapen (SCM) kompetensen för att uppnå aktivt medborgarskap enligt den Aktiva Medborgarskapsskalan (AM-skala). 

 

Det utvecklar också ett online-bedömningsverktyg som har två roller: 

  • Denna bedömning utvärderar kvinnorna innan implementeringen av workshops för att vägleda utbildare till att välja de mest lämpliga workshops baserat på kvinnornas nuvarande nivå på AM-skalan. 
  • Det kan också användas för att mäta förbättringen på AM-skalan efter slutförande av workshops.

Active Citizenship Scale Explained

Living in Isolation

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to people who hardly have any contacts outside their living quarters. To people whose contacts with society are restricted to pure functional contacts, for example, contacts for health and welfare. In many cases for these kinds of contacts a formal or informal interpreter is required to assist

These people do not participate in any form of training or development.

Going Outside

 

 

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to immigrant women who have some rather infrequent social contacts outside their living quarters. The contacts they have however are not related to work or their personal development, getting a job or entering education. These social contacts and activities consist of visiting friends, taking up individual sports, visiting the church or mosque, taking part in some organized activities or taking care of relatives outside the house.

Joining In

 

 

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to adults who are already socially active in their living quarters. However, their activities are yet not linked to a future orientation on work and such a perspective or ambition is not developed. So in this stage the activities to activate the adults to have a higher frequency and target more the future orientation as well as the training of elementary knowledge, skills and competences that relate to work.  

Voluntary work / practice

 

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to those adults who have become more and more active in work but may still stay within the welfare system. They could also be involved in some vocational education programs for at least once a week or follow some education or citizenship courses with a short period of work experience in it. One more feature of the stage is being active in voluntary work.

 

 

In this stage adults have activities with a higher and regulated frequency. The activities are also more targeted to either acquiring work experience or to work related training.

Acquiring professional qualifications

 

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to those low educated adultswho are participating in vocational education in combination with a training which leads to basic qualifications, to adultswho have (part time) work in combination with welfare benefits or to adultswho work in combination with some kind of subvention programme, or are supported by job coaches and the like. Adultswho receive support in their route to selfemployment are as well related to this stage.

 

At this stage the accent is on either a qualification route or on work both preparing for more independency of the women (stage 6) for a considerable amount of time per week (> 24 hours).

Active citizenship

 

This stage of the active citizenship scale refers to adults who arehaving a paid job with a contract; selfemployed or entrepreneurs without any additional support; following professional education as the major activity. The women themselves are capable of making active usage of a variety of offers the society has.

 

The focus at this stage is on having a regular job or on further professional development without experiencing any major handicaps related to language or lack of knowledge of the host society.
