The BOOST project aims to foster global competence development amongst vulnerable women to advance their social inclusion and support their career pathway. Through a bespoke coaching programme presented in the form of a toolkit, BOOST will also equip professionals so that they can better support these women to use global competence to cope with the challenges they face every day. BOOST adopts a bottom-up approach and will involve both target groups (i.e. women and professionals) in all key phases of the project, including development, design, testing, validation, mainstream, dissemination, deployment.
BOOST has a strategic focus on women, specifically those currently facing vulnerability due to their migrant or cultural background whilst also targeting those professionals that are working in the field of adult education, such as trainers, career counsellors, social workers, and intercultural mediators.
