FIELDS OF EXPERTISE
Training for Competence Development
With participatory teaching and learning methods, SEAL CYPRUS motivates and empowers youth and adult learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.
Starting from the needs of the learners, we provide blended learning solutions based on scientific ground. We use a
wide range of innovative interactive educational methods to provide open and distance learning, non- formal education, e-learning and on-the-job training.
We are developing educational curricula for short training courses for youth workers but also for Strategic Partnerships. For ARTSQUAD, we created a Train-the-Trainer Curriculum to support youth professionals working with disadvantaged youth to use Digital Media, Storytelling, Drama and Music in their work with the youth. For CURSOR, we developed an In-service Training Programme Handbook. The handbook is used by youth professionals to support young learners in their career planning endeavours with the use of digital tools. For TRACES, we developed a Handbook for Youth Workers to support youth in managing their digital and online media presence.
Research & Innovation
In every project, we start from a careful needs analysis to address gaps in knowledge, practices, skills or tools. Our researchers are working following academic standards to gather and analyse insights on contemporary societal issues.
We are experimenting in Online Education, Blended Learning, and Digital Youth Work. SEAL CYPRUS has a team of versatile professionals that can undertake the digital part of an educational project.
We also love making videos; we are creating Educational Animation to stimulate learning.
Direct contact with our target groups
One of the strong points of SEAL CYPRUS is that we can pilot the digital tools and the intellectual outputs created by us or by our partners with diverse target groups of young people, youth workers, youth trainers/ facilitators, teachers and adult educators. Dialogue with our Stakeholders is key to us.
Dissemination and Visibility
SEAL CYPRUS has substantial experience in communication and dissemination strategies. We provide training to other organisations on Dissemination and Exploitation of project results.
Standardised Project Management & Digital Collaboration
In SEAL CYPRUS, we value efficiency and collaboration. By following standardised procedures in all the managerial aspects of our projects, we are capable of focusing on the quality of the intellectual outputs. We work with all the known digital platforms for collaboration, and we are delivering training to other entities on how to use them.
