Gentis 9 Who are we 9 Our view

Training and job placement as tools for inclusion and social transformation

Methodological bases of socio-educational intervention

At Gentis we work for equal opportunities through participation in the labor market and access to training, and we are inspired by various models of intervention: Employability by Skills model, Second Chance Schools model, and Community Care model focused on the Person.

We have a commitment to social inclusion with particular values that represent the desire to overcome exclusion and promote participation. And this desire represents the fundamental principle of our action.

employability model through competencies

One of the most representative models, which approaches skills development from the perspective of employability, is the one developed by the Istituto per lo Sviluppo della Formazione Profesionale dei Lavoratori di Roma (ISFOL). A work of reference and of high value for Social Action is the adaptation of this model by the Surt Foundation. One of the main contributions it offers us is a classification of skills grouped into three distinct areas that can be easily identified: Technical skills, basic skills, and transversal skills.

The skills model takes on special relevance when adapting the support processes to socio-labor insertion designed by and from the different orientation and insertion devices that are developed in the entity. The reason: This model allows
that people recover their own resources and can transfer them and put them into practice in the development of a specific occupation.

second chance schools model

The Second Chance Schools (E2O) provide young people, without work and/or training, with an original pedagogical model based on innovative training through personalized itineraries, reinforcement of basic and work skills, practical experiences in connection with the business world, and support in social requirements with special attention to the most vulnerable.

The Second Chance School is integrated into the “Lo Pont” Adult Training Center, a living learning space that functions as an integrated center with one dimension connected to the Department of Education and another to the Department of Work, Social Affairs, and Families.

However, “Lo Pont” is a decentralized educational center focused on the return to the education system or job insertion and the improvement of transversal and emotional skills of young people between 16 and 24 years old who have suffered premature abandonment of their studies or school failure. It has several decentralized care points (Deltebre, Amposta, Roquetes, La Sènia, Alcanar, Gandesa, and Móra d’Ebre) where GESO, CAM, and CPPCGS trainings are given, and PFIs, as well as programs of the Service of Occupation of Catalonia, such as New Opportunities and First Opportunity for young people who migrate alone, as well as a catalog of professional certificates.

Individualized community care model

Following this mentality of personalized and inclusive intervention, our foundation develops the community and social intervention proposal from the community care model centered on the person who proposes the table of the third sector and is based on the principles of dignity, capacity, and autonomy of the person. There are 6 vectors that define this person-centered community model: care from the community, integrated with other services, personalized, with decision autonomy, multidisciplinary and preventive.

The objectives of these actions are:

  • Act in a transversal, integrative and interdisciplinary manner to improve the social conditions of the groups served.
  • Foster co-responsibility and active commitment with users and different social agents involved.
  • Respond to new needs through preventive actions.
  • Facilitate greater integration for families with the most social disadvantage in order to avoid social fracture.
