The training is a very specific and innovative proposal that JUMP makes to international guests which combines 3 main ingredients:

  • learn Italian language using non formal education and experiencing speaking with native Italian speakers;
  • improve the ability in cooking using local food, working with local chefs and learning by doing;
  • discover and understand the local culture of Calabria, South of Italy and create a link with the economical development of the agriculture and food chain in Europe.
Evaluation strategy:

Usually is needed to fill an LMA LEARNING MOBILITY AGREEMENT. Participants and training providers fix all the general details like:

- description of the training;

- main aims;

- description of the activities;

- learning outcomes;

- period.

This document is signed by all partners.

Research of quality is an "ongoing process".

Teaching/Learning approach:

-Cross-sectorial training and educational programs mixing intercultural activities and social moments,

-Development of European Citizenship Education,

-Development of International trainings at local level,

-Involvement of a team of international trainers,

-A close cooperation with schools at each level,

-Direct involvement of Italian teachers,

-A real and concrete contact with the local community

Target Group(s) :
  • Company staff; Regional and local authorities; Teachers & school staff: secondary level
Assessment Methods:

JUMP ALWAYS foresees a specific session on Erasmus Plus which in many cases changed and improved the quality of the training and educational system. In this session the topic of the importance of self evaluation of participants is faced which depends on them.

An EVALUATION SESSION is also organized but it is necessary to start since the beginning to reflect on the 8 Key competences for the Life Long Learning and then to be able to fix it by writing down the personal evaluation on the process of learning and living the experience with us: at professional, intercultural and human level.

JUMP philosophy and method are based on Non Formal Education. We hate questionnaires so our evaluations and our "certificates moments" are always "not a final moment of an incredible week in Italy" but a "first step for future cooperation working together".
