Diploma directly addresses objectives under the horizontal priority of social inclusion. The project will provide young people from disadvantaged/ marginalised communities, with interactions and learning opportunities that enable them to better access information about training and education routes and to help them navigate these routes.
Student ambassadors/ volunteers will work locally/ regionallyin the three countries with young people who have fewer opportunities, including young people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, with SENDs, ethnic minority groups, young people at risk of becoming NEET, from Roma communities and migrant backgrounds. Ambassadors/ volunteers themselves will be students from similar backgrounds and their engagement with the project will support their inclusion and sense of belonging in their universities/ colleges and schools.
Diploma will promote tolerance, knowledge and understanding of these backgrounds and understanding of the challenges young people face amongst ambassadors/ volunteers and those working with them in different organisations (HEIS, FE colleges, Schools, Local Authorities, Non-formal learning providers, Careers advisers and Youth Workers).
