First step is to develop a baseline research on the profile of current practice in the urban and human regeneration space – profiling the Urban Regeneration Professional. Compiling this baseline research will enable the consortium to develop added value through knowledge, understanding and practice in training communities via local stakeholders to become real agents of change and social innovators. The final goal is to produce a research report describing the best experiences, collected by all partners, from which it is possible to extract the characteristics of the urban regeneration professional.
The Future Training Model action will consist of the design of the training course and certification system. Professors/trainers have a key role in this Output, because their competences can translate the needs, indications and proposals in a training program. Within the training will also be considered the changing paradigm from urban to human regeneration with a more holistic and trans-disciplinary approach. All organizations in the consortium will collaborate for the creation of a common model for the training course: contents, didactical tools and assessment schemes.
FUTURE Lab-kit is dedciated to the experimentation phase divided in two complementary parts: classroom activities and the activation of local LABs, a field training that will involve trainees in the development of Integrated Action Plans. At local level each partner will organize these laboratories and will involve relevant stakeholders, namely local authorities/municipalities and owners of urban regeneration process. FUTURE Lab-kit will then contain all reports coming from training experimentations together with all IAPs elaborated by trainees which will become an essential component of the output.
FUTURE Handbook will be elaborated starting from the finalisation of FUTURE Training Programme, so produce a “standard version” of the training proposal to allow a greater transferability to other national and EU organisation wishing to adopt the model. All partners will be involved, by collecting all feedbacks from the trainees and trainers and the proposition of certification systems to be adopted The Handbook will then provide general guidelines of the training course, how to implement it and the certification scheme to be applied both by higher education institutions and by VET providers.
