Celebration of the multiplier event for the dissemination of the Educere Project

Last 17th March, one of the multiplier events of the Erasmus Plus EDUCERE Project took place in Antiguas Casas Consistoriales of Badajoz.

This project, funded by the European Commission, aims to help professionals working in the field of juvenile justice through the creation of a Competence Accreditation Model.

Educere is led by the entity Adis Meridianos and has as partners the Regional Ministry of Health and Social Services of the Regional Government of Extremadura, the University of Malaga, the European Centre for Training for Employment (ECTE) in Greece and the Association La Sauvegarde 01 (ADSEA) in France.

This event was inaugurated by the Mayor of Badajoz, Ignacio Gragera Barrera and the second vice-president and councillor for Health and Social Services, José María Vergeles, who explained that “the aim is to study the competences that these professionals need to offer the best approach for the social, labour and educational future of these boys and girls; a job that requires competences in communication, social, family and participation skills”.

Afterwards, Guillermo Bermúdez, from the University of Málaga, gave a brief presentation of the project to the attendees, followed by José Joya Roldán, Development Manager of Meridianos, who explained the methodology used for the creation of this competence model.

In addition, Raquel Bartolomé, professor at the University of Castilla La Mancha, who has previously participated in the project, gave a presentation on the professional challenges of juvenile justice.

Finally, the event closed with a round table discussion under the title “Curriculum ‘plus’ Competences: A Model of Success in professional action with young people in conflict”, moderated by the general director of Social Services, Childhood and Families, Carmen Núñez Cumplido, and in which the speakers were David González Gómez, dean of the Faculty of Education of the UEX (Cáceres Campus), José Antonio Quintas Monroy, technical director of the Extremadura Institute of Qualifications and Accreditations; Rosa María Valverde Castillo, Director of the CCMJ Vicente Marcelo Nessi; Jesús Moreno Lobo, Head of the Juvenile Offenders Care Section; and Nacho Sánchez García, Advisor of the European Cooperation Network of Employment Services (EURES).
