V.IN.E - Vocational INCLUSIVE Education

Logo VINE Projekt

V.IN.E - Vocational INCLUSIVE Education is an Erasmus+ Small Scale Partnership. It started on 1st of February 2023 and lasts until 1 October 2024. Our inclution.org cooperates as a lead partner with the the German-Turkish Twin City Association in Germany and with the district administrations of the municipalities of Sisli (district of Instabul) and Tepebasi in Eskisehir  in Turkey.

We share our knowledge and best practices in supporting and promoting inclusive Vocational Education and Training (VET) for people with special educational needs (SEN). Our focus is on
learners with learning difficulties who are going through their school career with a special focus on "intellectual development".

inclution.org brings the experience from our involvement with the networking project stattWERKstatt.

20.03.2023 and 21.3.2023 - Kick Off Meeting of the Erasmus+ small scale partnership V.IN.E. - Vocational Inclusive Education with the Municipalities of Sisli (Istanbul) and Tepebasi (Eskisehir) in Istanbul/Turkey 🇹🇷.
Our founders Stana and Stefan Schenck bring in the best practices on inclusive vocational education (V.IN.E) based on their experience of building a network of parents and the initiative stattWERKstatt. During the partnership we also want to transfer the toolkit for social inclusion Me and Your Stories - MYS into turkish language and make it accessible to practisioners in vocational education.
A big thanks to Özcan Mutlu, who builds intercultural bridges between Germany and Turkey for many years now. As a president of the German Turkish Twincities Association (DTSV e.V.) and the associated partner of V.IN.E he supports the partnership between our inclution.org and the Turkish Municipalities of Sisli (Istanbul) and Tepebasi (Eskisehir).  A german-turkish journalist Murat Tosun joined our Kick off meeting of V.IN.E. too.
On the next day of our visit we have met the mayor of Sisli, Mr Muammer Keskin, and the mayor of Tepebasi, Mr Ahmet Atac. Together we have visited a job market for people with disabilities in the City Hall of Sisli. We have shared stories of best practice how to include people with disabilities on the free labor market. We also shared personal stories and celebrated #worlddownsyndromeday together.
We are very thankful to our turkish partners to give us such a warm welcome. In September we will meet with both turkish delegations in Berlin.
In our minds and in our hearts we are with the victims of the earthquake. The real number is hard to believe. The mobile phone providers lost the connection to about 300.000 phones. The loss is undescribable...

Timeline VINE

Two study visits are planned in Berlin and in Sisli/Tepebasi, framed by the Kick-off meeting in Sisli and the final meeting in Berlin. A Turkish version of the "Me and Your Stories" toolbox, developed in our previous Erasmus+ project "MYS", will be modified and translated into Turkish as a practical web-based tool for VET professionals to support inclusive career planning for learners with special needs.
