There are three routes by which participants might join the local IMAGINE pilot :
The practical training elements take place in several locations :
Participants are able to choose where they want to train and the duration depends on the wishes and the motivation of each person who takes parts.
As regards the theoretical training elements, RQ, via its integration adviser, sets up several group and/or individual workshops, these cover topics such as CV and cover letter writing, preparation for job interviews and workshops preparatory to placements.
Other more convivial and festive events also take place : the weekly employment breakfasts and the social bonding workshops and cultural outings, organised by RQ
As regards coaching, a tutor is responsible for each young person and will act as a link with the various partners involved in the programme delivery. The tutoring is divided between the integration advisor and the project manager. Weekly individual interviews are also organised by the integration advisor to assist in planning training courses and for the personal development of participants.
Regarding assessment ; interim and regular progress reviews are carried out by a multidisciplinary monitoring committee with the local partners involved to support individual participants.These take into account their difficulties, are designed to enhance their career paths and to adapt or re-evaluate their circumstances. Feedback from participants also helps to improve training.
A co-production methodology is used at both the partnership level between all the local partners involved and at the training delivery level with participants. This second dimension takes place in two specific ways :
Participants are supported across and beyond their time on the training by the project partners. They are supported into employment, volunteering, and other meaningful activity by RQ.In particular, they could obtain an employment contract with partners involved in the project, notably La Maison Le Noble or with another employer.
