About Social Seducement
The Social Seducement project aims to develop the key competences and skills of adults with disadvantages, and in particular those being unemployed, to help them start up a collaborative enterprise.   
Our approach is to set up an educational process which mobilises unknown or hidden capacities via an empowering learning process.
We will do this by:
  • Developing and testing an online role-play platform to discover, enhance and promote entrepreneurial skills
  • Increasing learning retention by immersing learners in realistic scenarios and challenges
  • Enable formal and informal learning that overcome the boundaries of time and place
  • Empower learning in nonconventional methods making it more accessible to marginalised individuals

With Social Seducement we aim to strengthen the cooperation between education and training, work and the social economy, non-profit and voluntary sectors, in an EU dimension, Social Seducement to maximise impact on individuals and our game.

Call for UK-based facilitators

The call is now closed.

Deadline for applications: 9am, 14th July 2016
Social Seducement is getting nearer to the piloting stage and so The Tavistock Institute for Human Relations (TIHR) is seeking three facilitators to lead the piloting of the new, serious online Role-playing game (RPG) in the UK between November 2016 and May 2017.  Successful applicants will be:

* Skilled facilitators, enthusiastic about the opportunity to contribute to the development of an innovative training tool which aims to empower people to develop social enterprise and employability skills;

* Experienced in supporting the development of social enterprise skills and/or at working with ‘disadvantaged’ groups.

At a time of change in the UK’s position within the EU, this is a chance to be part of an ongoing European partnership, which is working together to develop and provide engaging, learning opportunities for people wanting to find or create their own employment. Facilitators will be able to use the RPG in their future work with people and join an EU-wide facilitators’ network.
