The BooStress partners met last December (04-05.12.2017) in Cyprus for the project Kick-Off meeting. In a very exciting atmosphere, partners discussed about the main project outputs, defined the next steps, agreed on the methodology and paved the way for the project implementation phasis.
By the project completion in October 2019, partners aspire to develop a vocational training package to equip current and prospect young workers with stress management skills, in the context of health and safety framework, and build their capacity to address relevant challenges in their work environment. The BooStress training package is to be provided in a full digital format based on eLearning pedagogies, work-based online learning, case studies, real market scenarios and collaboration. All modules, tools and other outputs will be available on the multifunctional and interactive platform and mobile application.
Overall, the Boo-Stress consortium aims to upgrade and multiply the opportunities for up-skilling and re-skilling young workers in managing work related stress, via innovative VET tools and pedagogies, accompanied by skills acquisition assessment, recognition and validation methods and to empower the youth to co-opt with the contemporary market needs in EU, where it will also promote collaboration, communication and networking among employed and non-employed EU citizens.
