FIELDS OF EXPERTISE

Training for Competence Development

With participatory teaching and learning methods, we motivate and empower 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.

Educational curricula

We are developing educational curricula for short training courses for youth workers but also for Strategic Partnerships. For our Strategic Partnership ARTSQUAD, we have created a full suite of modules for a Train-the-Trainer Curriculum.

The objective was to support youth professionals working with disadvantaged youth to use Digital Media, Storytelling, Drama and Music in their work with the youth.

For our Strategic Partnership CURSOR, we have developed an In-service Training Programme Handbook on Career Planning. The handbook will be used by youth professionals to support young learners in their career planning endeavours with the use of digital tools.

Research

We are using research to identify the needs and preferences of the key target groups of our project. Needs analysis and state-of-the-art are part of many of our projects. We have profiled the “Youth Trainers in Cyprus” in 2015.

In 2017, we led research in Cyprus, Estonia, Ireland, and Romania to present an overview of the structure of youth work, and to identify the training provision available for youth trainers and youth workers engaging with young disadvantaged people.

In 2018 we have researched the “Best practices in the design of blended learning curricula and e-learning environments in career guidance of the young people, with a focus on those with fewer opportunities” in Cyprus, Romania, Ireland, and Poland.

In 2019, we have led a needs analysis on Entrepreneurship Education, and a Research on market needs on job profiles, skills and attitudes in Cyprus, Italy, Greece, and Portugal.

Digital tools in training and youth work

SEAL CYPRUS has a team of versatile professionals that can undertake the digital part of an educational project. We build powerful and scalable web apps that are custom made using agile development processes leveraging the latest web technologies. We are flexible in our approach and diverse in our skillset. Each project is different, and we treat it as such.

The advantage of our organisation is that we can pilot our digital tool with diverse target groups of young people, youth workers, youth trainers/ facilitators, and adult educators.

For our Strategic Partnerships TRACES, we are creating a series of animation video to support young people manage their digital and social media presence.

Dissemination and Visibility

SEAL CYPRUS has substantial experience in communication and dissemination strategies. We also provide training to other organisations on Dissemination and Visibility.

Standardised procedures

In SEAL CYPRUS, we value efficiency. By following standardised procedures in all the managerial aspects of our projects, we are capable to focus on the quality of the intellectual outputs.
