ZuPer-Q: Future perspectives through technology education for people in the district

The ZuPer-Q project is aimed at children and young people in districts with special development needs and their families, but also at people from the district who want practical and technical training under supervision. Due to the needs in the districts, the following goals are to be achieved:

  1. Future technology workshops should be set up, tested and continued as a leisure-related educational offer.

  2. The target groups should gain action-oriented and practical knowledge and skills in relation to future technologies, develop interest and enthusiasm, get a more positive self-concept and be informed about career prospects. At the same time, competences in language, problem solving and social interaction should be strengthened and thus the educational opportunities of the target groups should be expanded. In addition, certificates are awarded for acquired competences in order to increase the professional opportunities of the participants.

  3. The close cooperation between the children's and youth leisure facilities, the Technical University of Berlin and other educational actors in the districts creates networks through which resources and knowledge can be shared. The resulting synergy effects are intended to strengthen youth leisure education and the general level of education in the districts. Overall, this should improve prospects for children and young people from socially disadvantaged families.
