A year ago, the Psych Up project was launched…
Working on the support of trainees suffering from psychological disturbances, the partners are currently completing the first intellectual production: the function profile of the psychological disturbances referent. For one year, the partners undertook several field activities and meetings with professionals in the adult education sector.
The field research consisted of several activities :
- A questionnaire addressed to professionals working with learners suffering from psychological disturbances
- Observation visits in VET centres, to watch how professionals work
- Interviews with said professionals, to better understand their daily routine, challenges and questioning
- Focus groups with professionals, to work on a proposal of function profile containing the skills and competences necessary to support learners with psychological disturbances
Then, it was time to summarize all the collected results in order to create the final product, the function profile.
This production will be completed next month, during the 3rd meeting of partners, which will be hosted in Brussels by AID. This meeting will also be the opportunity to launch the work on the 2nd planned production, namely a training framework for the psychologic disturbances referents, also called the Psych Up Referent.
