STUDY / REPORT
Social and Solidarity Economy: A new paradigm through IVET innovation
SSE is a modality of practicing exchanges, not a confined sector of economy. It is rooted in inclusive values and practices, and comprises organisations of the Third Sector, as social enterprises, social movements and citizens who develop alternatives to the multi-layered crisis that we face today.
The questions that have been addressed explore the various aspects, both in terms of context (historical, normative, social, political) and of content, that lead to assert, through comparative methodology, the need to develop a common set of IVET training modules on SSE.
Results & Discussion.
A study among experienced social enterprises could help identify training needs. IVET organisations should have an understanding of how SSE can be a relevant field in which to train young people, and how it has a potential for innovation and employment creation.
