INTERGENERATIONAL SKILL TRANSFER
This is an innovative and unique approach for the SEP workshops as it now includes a skill transfer aspect for the participants from an intergenerational perspective.
In a nutshell, these are accredited media workshop geared to build a community of students (college and university students) across the city (Manchester), encouraging them to research into health theme. The skills amongst many being transferred include the following:
• Creative, Media and Digital Skills
• Communication skills
• Project management skills
• Collaboration and Team-working skills
• Social awareness and Emotional intelligence skills
How it works in 3 simple stages?
Stage 1: Train university students through the process of creating a short documentary, participating in an acting master class or creating a podcast production that investigates a health theme.
Stage 2: Empower the university students upon completion of the workshops to become assistant mentors in delivering these same workshops and sessions to younger college students.
Stage 3: Train college students through the process of creating a short documentary, participating in an acting master class or creating a podcast production that investigates a health theme with the assistance of university students.
This fosters an organic community where university students and college students transfer skills to each other.
