VIM training offer

The VIM training offers small training units – that the VIM team has decided to call simply “activities” as these shall be interactive and shall involve migrants and refugees in all kind of playful, discovery oriented and holistic activities. TheseĀ  are clustered into the following main categories:

  • Different conceptions of health, illness and cure based on culture and religion
  • Mental well-being
  • Physical well-being
  • Access to the new health services – obstacles and problems
  • Sex/sexuality, pregnancy and childbirth
  • Communication

Each of the six categories provides approx. ten different activities – these vary in terms of their duration, group of learners, equipment needed. They all have in common that they can be implemented in all kind of adult education courses by educators that are not health experts.

Partner meet in Vienna

The VIM partners met in Vienna on 05./06.06.2018 and worked on the development of the health related training units and activities. These will be provided on the VIM Hub for download and can be used by European adult educators that wish to raise certain health related topics in an innovative and interactive way on their courses addressing migrants and refugees.

The training units will be available for piloting in autumn 2018.
