GFRH The Book 4 lq

Discover our new Vocational Educational Training (VET) comic book. Go Further Reach Higher is one of our latest VET project, that offer 90 young trainees with fewer opportunities the chance to develop professional and personal skills abroad.

Trainees were expected to undertake two week traineeships in either animal management studies or wood occupations. Trainees and staff working in the field of Animal Management were able to spend their placement in either the Netherlands or Malta and their training was based in a Donkey sanctuary, or a Cat Sanctuary with opportunities to undertake additional enrichment activities in an Ostrich Farm and/or a National Park.  For those staff and trainees undertaking studies or training in the field of wood occupation and carpentry, the placements offered were in Sweden or Portugal in one of three fields, in carpentry, in restoration, or in joinery, three distinct areas giving participants a different experience and different learning opportunities. Placements were tailored to the individual participants needs and include activities in one or more of these areas.

As part of their project, each of theme had to produce a comic page telling a bit more about their activities, what they have done and what they’ve learnt.
At the end we produced and printed the following comic book showcasing some of the comics and some of the results of the survey highlghting the impact that this project had on participants a few month after their return.

Suitcase Circus SCREAM – The Book

the book NEWS ARTICLE

In order to celebrate the end of our international project Suitcase Circus SCREAM and its achievement, Everything is Possible and our partners produced a book. It highlights some of the testimonies produced by the participants and what they have learnt thanks to the mobility project they took part in.

Suitcase Circus: SCREAM (Social Circus; recognising educational activity methodologies) has been developed by a partnership of organisations working in the field of Circus. Circus as an education field is unrecognised in many countries. Informal and non-formal education projects being delivered to young people with fewer opportunities through social circus are considered to be ‘youth activities’ with little recognition of the significant impact on young people’s personal development. Circus degree’s often referred to as ‘Clown Degree’s’ again do not recognise the magnitude of the training, fitness and ability young people undertaking such studies must develop to achieve this qualification which is arguably one of the hardest degrees to gain.

For this project we had three objectives in mind:

  • The recognition of circus as a method of education.
  • The synergy to be achieved by partners from different educational sectors co-operating together.
  • Circus educators professional development to be achieved through international mobility.
