Summary

The SC4SC project - Systemic Coaching for Social Competence - supports the intercultural and multilingual development of the Systemic Coaching method in the adult education in Europe. Within this partnership a transnational and ICT-based SC4SC training module was developed that is compatible with social competence training. In the sense of Grundtvig the innovative systemic coaching approach was discussed and disseminated in different countries and cultures encouraging the European dimension. The SC4SC module is addressed to personal staff, teachers, trainers and consultants who are interested to develop their social skills and their social skills trainings.

The Austrian project coordinator ESBA provided the professional know how and their experiences with Systemic Coaching. They are experts of the Kiel Consulting Model that is based on the philosophy of constructivism (Heinz von Förster) and on the systemic-solution- and future-oriented approach (Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer).

All project partners participated in an Information- and a Developing Workshop. Then pilot trainings were organised in AT, CH and IT. The research and evaluation process was controlled by the Italian partner Antares and the new internet platform was managed by the Swiss partner HEIG-VD in coordination with Pusswald & Partner from Poland. They further supported ESBA with the general project management. BesTraining from Bulgaria focused on the product developing process.

The Systemic coaching approach is a very innovative and actual topic, that is used successfully in consulting and education context. In comparison with Anglo-American history and concepts this partnership wants to encourage an Europe dimension and to support dissemination of this Systemic Coaching approach.
