Toolbox

The Second Chance toolbox gathers the main tools used during the project, to collect and analyse information and to develop the Second Chance training model.

The toolbox also collects a set of possible tools and teaching aids, which can be used for the implementation of the training modules particularly during the assessment phase.

The toolbox includes: documents produced during the project, teaching aids produced by the EPRO model in Germany and other means produced by the partners in previous projects.

Furthermore the toolbox also incorporates different resources that have been used to develop the Second Chance model and that can be a useful source of inspiration for the transfer of the model in other national system or to other economic sectors.

The tools and documents contained in the toolbox come from different partner and country and are presented in their original language.
