Description

ttg team training GmbH is an informal provider of adult education and vocational education and training (VET). We are located in the south of Germany in Tübingen and we also have branch offices in different cities around.

ttg offers vocational education and training, ICT, job services, intercultural courses, and general continuing education as well as consulting and coaching. Moreover, we also run trainerprogrammes, team development programmes and programmes for pupils. In our ICT-Center and Business Center we have about 150 ICT workplaces for learners, who want to improve their ICT competences.

Target groups and partnerships: Participants include men and women, job seekers, immigrants, young and older people. Trainers, consultants and employees of other adult education providers participate in activities and projects. We have been carrying out cooperative projects on a local, national and transnational level: ttg has built a wide regional network by initiating and coordinating projects concerning, for example, marketing strategies and quality management (supported by the ESF).

ttg has memberships in local and regional initiatives and working committees with high dissemination potential and valorisation can be based on work with partners and their networks in 14 EU countries.

By joining in and guiding projects at a European level, ttg team training has developed a European wide profile and improved its intercultural competence. It has taken the challenge of posing questions like “What is Europe for us?” and “What does a European perspective include for our work, our organisation and the people working for us?” ttg has been part of and has been coordinating several Grundtvig LLL projects during the last years dealing with topics such as marketing competences, strategic perspectives, business startups and culture traditions and intends to further broaden its transnational activities.

Activité Conseil - Boutique de Gestion

Mr. Julien Vallette

Description

Since 1996 Activité Conseil provides vocational training and courses, coaching and advice, to learners throughout French Guiana. 23 staff members are currently involved in the association, more than 1500 learners are concerned each year by its activities. Those are divided into three domains: integration (~1800 beneficiaries), entrepreneurship (~500 beneficiaries) and vocational training (~200 beneficiaries). The three domains are linked, with frequent bridges between them. All focus on the same target group composed of unemployed people with low levels of vocational education and low chances, including those from the remote traditional villages, notably on Maroni river, deep in the forest, without any access by road and far from the populated coast. Last but not least, the association gave birth by the end of 2007 to another structure called “Nou La Ke To” (meaning “We stand with you” in Creole), which really is a small business incubator dedicated to giving our target group an opportunity bring up their business ideas and test them with the backup of a legal housing.

This small business incubator, which is not marketed at all toward businessmen, but which militantly focuses on people with low achievements and chances, has allowed 30 people so far to connect theory and practice in the field of business, 10 of which have then reached the next step and formally launched a business. In any case it offered to all a space to express themselves, to demonstrate their capabilities and gain consideration when no one else was giving them a chance.

Role in the project

In this context, we recognize ourselves in GRUNDTVIG partnership “Creating Spaces of Experience". We could bring an unusual outlook, from an ultra-peripheral region, using another angle and with a slightly different cultural background, but also testimonials, from real people having advanced thanks to an opportunity given to them through our own space of experience that Nou La Ke To is.
