CCUV, Erasmus + Project

CCUV is an Erasmus+ project. It is the first time Inclusion Ireland
has been involved in an Erasmus+ project. CCUV stands for: “Capito! Compris! Understood! Verstanden!” These words mean “understood” in different languages.

We work with organisations and universities from different countries: Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.

The project aims to develop common standards to translate language into three different levels of difficulty: B1 for plain language, A2 for easy-to-read language and A1 for the easiest level.

Training

The training modules below form part of a course to train future professionals working on easy to read. Each module is composed of instructions and tools that will support the organisation of course. Following the course, attendees will be able to produce easy to read, make digital document more accessible, organise proofreading sessions with self-advocates and gain more insight into accessible video and easy language.

Module 1 – Pictures

Module 2 – Accessible PDFs

Module 3 – Testing Group Facilitators

Module 4 – Audio Video

Module 5 – Interviews

Curriculum

This curriculum provides the foundations for a course made for future Easy-to-read (ETR) training instructors. It can be used by organisations to train individuals with Easy-to-read needs. Following the course, participants can collaborate with other instructors (most often, individuals without ETR needs) as “co-trainers” to teach future Easy-to-Read translators.

 

There are also podcasts that explore easy to read across Austria, France, Ireland and Italy. You can listen to them here
