Surveys show low levels of financial integration of migrant populations around the world due to differences in cultural and social attitudes, as well as confidence and training in the financial system, limited knowledge and skills, low levels of economic education, and limited language proficiency. INFINITY will develop migrants’ financial literacy skills and will create a state-of-the-art educational material including elements of entrepreneurship, soft skills, and sustainability in order to increase self-employment and ensure that migrants will become productive members that contribute to society and will promote the welfare and growth of the area they live in.
The Square Dot Team, as the project’s ambassador of the European VET community, will lead and organize the implementation of the piloting activities under WP3. The pilot implementation of the project’s training course will “put to the test” the developed material and allow its validation by the project’s target groups and, at the same time, enable a co-creation approach for the finalization of training materials. Furthermore, they will create significant opportunities of raising awareness about the project’s activities and results within the local communities.
