Supermom Kick-Off 2010
"Connected"- this was the motto of one of the final products of the "Supermom Kick-Off" project, funded from 2010- 2012 by the German National Agency Bildung für Europa beim Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung. The title of the short film which resulted from a tailor-made training course for unemployed single parents in the film and media sector, illustrated the common challenges for this target group all over Europe.
Studies show that almost 20% of European children live in single-parent households and that their poverty risk is almost twice as high as the average poverty risk for all children. This fact only would be sufficient to concentrate on the topic and find support measures that really help lone mothers and fathers to be better (re-)integrated into the labour market.
In addition to flexible childcare, tailor-made consulting and education services are needed. The LEONARDO DA VINCI - Transfer of Innovation Project "Supermom Kick-Off" with its systematic training is making a contribution.
The “Supermom” concept aims not only at the provision of job-related skills, but combines it with professional guidance, practical implementation and empowerment.
During the project period a total of 50 single-parent families participated in the partner countries, Germany, France, Italy, Poland and Northern Ireland in a systematic training in the film industry. Thus the project contributed to the development of customized counseling and educational programs from a European perspective.
