Partnership approach

For AID, the partnership approach is fundamental to all the projects set up and is the subject of particular attention in the network’s pedagogical project. We believe that “successful insertion” is a challenge that is beyond the reach of any single institution and our concern is to provide our target audience a specialised service that is as well adapted as possible.

Thus, the AID make it their duty to organise collaborations. they are ready to give up partial ownership of their project, if this is a condition for its success. Being in partnerships is to enter into partners’ approaches and situations where compromises, negotiations and conciliation take place. The most important thing is that each, in their assessment, can see more advantages than inconveniences in the collaboration. 

Over the years, AID has developed their partnership in several directions: 

  • Public training and employment services;
  • All private organisations, whether non-profit or not that are active in the social, educational and employment spheres;  
  • Transnational organisations and networks;
  • The active forces of its network.

Transnational partners

Building on its involvement in several Europe-wide projects, the AID network has greatly opened up internationally over recent years. Its collaborations are spread in numerous domains with a variety of partners from: 

  • either networks of which AID is a member,
  • the non-profit sector,
  • or public bodies

Below is a non-exhaustive list of those key partners that have helped the network to enrich its practices, its thoughts and its tools (the presentation of the partners is also available on each project sheet).

Networks

AID Coordination is a member of two transnational networks: CEC and Tandem plus.

CEC - European Coordination Committee

Logo CECThe European Coordination Committee brings together 20 members from 13 European Union Member States, representing some 8oo associations (training centres, social cooperatives, social enterprises…). The CEC’s European network aims to develop European partnerships between organisations whose goals at the regional level include: social and vocational integration for disadvantaged groups, the fight against exclusion, equality of opportunity, lifelong training and education, sustainable development through developing new training pathways in green jobs…  

Tandem Plus 

Logo Tandem Plus

The Tandem Plus network, which was created in 2008, is a grouping of public and private sector organisations from several European countries. It rests on the experiences of the different countries concerned in the area of social exclusion and poverty, and brings together multidisciplinary partners to collectively respond to those issues by pooling their human, technical and financial resources. The members of the network have decided, with respect for the missions of each, to coordinate their actions with a view to developing new models or methods for transnational cooperation.
