On 23rd to 27th of May 2022 took place the first short term joint staff training in Livorno. Italy, hosted by partner LINC. The main goals of this training were:
❖ To increase participants' knowledge about the design thinking process before starting the piloting phase with the prisoners, and how to use these principles.
❖ To enhance the job performance of justice practitioners that work in prison contexts, empowering them with new tools, templates, and digital possibilities, increasing the number of resources available to invest in prisoners’ rehabilitation and social reintegration.
❖ To optimize the national pilot’s quality and results, by investing in the previous specialization of the trainers.
❖ To contribute to the transnational added value of the project, that is to generate interdisciplinarity and crosstalk between professionals. Participants
6 participants from ISC, DGRSP, VIS, and MEH, 3 participants from APX and 2 participants from AVACA from Prison and Probation staff who will conduct piloting national activities with the target group.
"DESIGN THINKING FOR PRISON INDUSTRIES" THROUGH TEACHING RESOURCES, DELIVERY MODELS AND TRAINING FOR TRAINERS
"The aim of the project is to extend the positive impact of the 'Design Thinking for Prison Industries' (DTPI) programme by 'scaling out' the delivery model to prison staff and those delivering criminal justice education programmes from public, private and third sector organisations in the UK. We will do this by developing the educational resources for digital dissemination and further refining the delivery, volunteering and enterprise models created and tested within the pilot project."
Today, the 2nd Transnational Project Meeting happened in Saumur, France. This was an opportunity to discuss the first output monitoring and the next steps for partners to develop a reference framework of competencies for prisoners re-entry & the new re-entry barriers created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Afterwards, Aproximar partner presented the second output - design thinking for prisoner's reintegration.
in the afternoon Avaca partner presented the work breakdown structure of output 3- self Design mobile platform. Some activities were made to draft the initial scenario of the APP and the user journey mapping.
