MEDILINGUA - Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of innovation
Project number: 2013-1-PL1-LEO05-37769
Implementation period: 01.2014-12.2015
The aim of the project is to raise employability and vocational mobility of paramedics, by enabling them to increase competence in the field of communication skills, with particular emphasis on developing language skills. The partnership plans to provide these skills to target groups using e-learning and m-learning solutions. In addition, the project aims to effectively transfer the Podcasting methodology.
The target group of the project is the people who are going to use the project’s results after its end. In our case these are paramedics from the countries of the partnership. Because the status and job profile of paramedics in the different countries of the consortium are not the same, at the kick-off meeting of the project in Portugal it was agreed that for the project’s purposes paramedics would be defined as “people who are trained to do medical work, especially emergency first aid, but are not a fully qualified doctors”.
The stakeholders of the MEDILINGUA project can be more broadly described than the target groups. They are experts from the medical sector, representatives of business, employers, VET centers, trainers and training centers for paramedics, VET policy makers, etc. They are actually the people, who have interest in the implementation of the project.
