Impact of the PROJECT

The project will have an impact on participants from all countries as it will develop teaching skills by raising participants’ skills and awareness of issues around aggression, violence and mobbing.  All participants will be given the opportunity to examine practices used in other countries. The project will enable us to understand the nature of aggressive behaviours, violence and mobbing as well as jointly answer the questions as to who is the victim most often, how aggression is developed and what are its consequences, including the impact on subsequent behaviours, e.g. at work. We will suggest how to notice and counter aggression effectively. We will also present antiaggression strategies.

Poland will receive a massive support coming from good foreign practices and in the same time Polish experiences will be shared with other partners. Exchange of experience will enhance cooperation and result in better understanding of various approaches.

Final beneficiaries will be offered additional opportunities to participate actively in organization activities – this means that the unit needs to conduct a steady dialogue with its environment.

The types of impact that the project has on participants and target groups fall into several categories:

Motivation level – increase in learning motivation, including foreign languages, encouragement to self-improvement resulting in increased self-confidence and higher professional and personal aspirations to increase commitment to the tasks performed.

Cultural competences – development of intercultural competences: openness, acceptance and tolerance of diversity, change in the way of thinking about cultural distinctiveness, overcoming stereotypes, enhancing knowledge about partner countries (history and culture of another country, development of intercultural education), learning about cultural differences and mentality of Europeans to improve the content of teaching.

Personal competences – development of language and ICT skills, increasing self-esteem and self-confidence, improvement of the image and self-presentation, enhancing knowledge and experience which is worth sharing with co-workers from parent educational establishments, acquiring stress management skills, e.g. as a result of the presentations prepared and delivered in the country and abroad, a greater sense of responsibility for the tasks performed, communication skills (interpersonal relationships, meeting new people / making new friends among the staff, which may help to carry out subsequent projects of international exchange) and a greater multicultural awareness which impacts personal and professional development.

Impact on cooperating organisations – promotion activities, both in the local environment and on the European stage, a better staff cooperation, a bigger support of management staff, a greater independence and open minds of adult education providers as well as enhancement of mutual understanding and tolerance.
