    INCREASING AWARENESS OF CHILDREN OF BROKEN FAMILIES IN THE FIELD OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING

    The idea of our project arose from one of the most urgent and serious problems confronted in the field of vocational education and training. It is clear that the number of broken families has been increasingly creating negative effects on children getting education in VET in recent years and it is true that broken family structures consistently lead to education difficulties for children aged 14-18 years. According to the results of the survey in the project, compared to their peers living in intact families, children of broken families are more likely to suffer from damaging mental, social, emotional and professional troubles than those whose parents stay together in vocational training environment. Another result is that, thus, they need more support, guidance and encouragement as they are facing with some remarkable problems such as dropping out of school, having less motivation on learning, anxiety about their future career, failing to be well-equipped with qualifications related to working area, having difficulty in finding a job after graduating and slipping into anti-social behavior and so on. The project is intended to raise awareness, enhance vocational competence and skills, prevent social exclusion,let them be more active in learning by creating concrete and effective solutions for the children suffering from family problems in VET. We had originally planned to have 9 partners but 3 were not approved by their National Agencies. Therefore some changes were necessary in the distribution of tasks. Six partners were involved in the activities of the project:UK(1),Spain(1), Greece(1),Turkey(3) including local partners. The mix of partners in terms of nationalities and experience had many benefits. It brought an enhanced European dimension to the project which gave us a different view of the issues faced by young people in VET and also different solutions and coping mechanisms. The project duration is 2 years.Outputs are handbook, brochures,wesite,CD,semin
