Completion of the European Mingle project

Mingle Noticia RoadmapAfter almost three years of development, the European project for the integration of TCNs (Third Country Nationals) MINGLE, concluded this January in the five partner countries: Greece, Cyprus, Germany, Sweden and Spain.

The Mingle project has been implemented in Spain, more specifically in Cantabria, by the Santander City Council through its Municipal Center for Immigration and Development Cooperation (CMICAD) and by DOCUMENTA, which during these almost three years have implemented this methodology of work to contribute to the improvement of the integration of immigrants in the region.

During the development of the project, more than 700 people, between TCNs and locals, participated in its actions, thus reaching higher participation rates than expected and a very high degree of satisfaction by the participants.


Mentoring sessions held for 96 TCNs in the Mingle project

Mingle mentoring noticia2During the last six months of last year, DOCUMENTA developed the last phase of the Mingle project in Spain: the Mentoring. A phase focused on advice for TCNs (Third Country Nationals) on legal, labor, educational, cultural and leisure issues, through a series of materials designed by DOCUMENTA which offered to the participants in these sessions, information and activities that contributed to improving their situation and their level of integration in the host society.

96 participants, women (56%) and men (44%) from different countries, especially from Latin America (64.5%) who were informed and advised on actions that focused on improving their situation based on their needs and interests. The most represented nationalities were Peruvian, Venezuelan and Colombian, showing with these data a specific situation of immigration in the region.


The Documenta team wishes you ...

Merry Christmas!


A second pilot training for the In2C project carried out in Spain

In2C TrainingFLCOn December 1, 2, 3 and 4, the Cantabria Construction Labor Foundation and DOCUMENTA carried out the second pilot training of the European In2C Project "Integration of Nationals from Third Countries in the Construction Sector" at the Center of Training of the FLC in Barreda (Cantabria) for a group of NTPs that participate in the Red Cross program.

For four days, the participating TCNs were able to carry out the training that the In2C project has prepared in Health and Safety (Prevention of Occupational Risks) and Labor Legislation and the Labor Market in Spain. In addition, they were able to learn about the online tools that were designed within the project to improve the skills and abilities of TCNs interested in working in the Construction Sector: Terminological Glossary, Technical Vocabulary based on images, E-Platform and SOnAT.

This second pilot training was received with great interest by the participants, who took advantage of these four days to improve their knowledge in aspects of the Construction Sector and to learn more about the In2C project.
