Between 21st and 28th October took place the training of trainers of the SIVIM project (Social Inclusion through Virtual International Mobility), held in Alcalá de Guadaíra (Spain) during which the three partner organisations continued their work on reducing the inequalities faced by young people who cannot access learning mobility opportunities.

Since the first meeting of the project in May, the three project partners (Alcalá de Guadaíra City Council, Kulturatka and Cantiere Giovani) have been working together to develop innovative educational materials, in the form of a Toolkit for Virtual Mobility in non-formal education. This toolkit will give to young people who cannot travel, the opportunity to develop similar competences to the ones gained by those taking part in transnational learning mobility activities.

During the training of trainers in Alcalá de Guadaíra, the participants were trained on the use of the toolkit. They also carried out a first validation to evaluate whether the toolkit meet the objectives of the project. The next step will be to apply the necessary improvements to the toolkit before the validation of the toolkit with young people.

This project, co-funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus + programme, will be a stepping stone towards reducing the inequalities by giving virtual learning mobility opportunities to young people who cannot access transnational mobility opportunities.
