- EAPN Portugal in IN PATH project – Intelligent Pathways for Better Inclusion, to break patterns
The IN PATH Intelligent Pathways for Better Inclusion project aims to break the pattern of transferring poverty and exclusion from one generation to the next, by empowering marginalized and disadvantaged citizens to easily manage everyday problems in different areas and not to be held back by their background.
Initiated in October 2011 and with a duration of 2 years, the IN PATH project is a Grundtvig initiative, co-funded by the European Commission as part of the Lifelong Learning Programme.
The project activities include the development of a practical Handbook, which will contain a set of tools, examples, strategies and good practices to evaluate different learning styles and to foster the development of four identified types of skills: financial management, active skills for employment and entrepreneurship, parenting skills and learning skills. The skills in these nuclear areas can be developed through the implementation of examples and strategies that foster different competences and that stimulates different intelligence profiles defined within the sphere of multiple intelligences. The consortium consists of 7 organisations representing 6 countries: Portugal, Romania, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, and Germany.
