Abstract:The aim of this research is to evaluate (a part of ) the “Supporter van Elkaar-project” (SVE), which is aimed at strengthening the Non-cognitive Personal Competences (NCPCs) of vulnerable citizens in Enschede. Our research-question therefore is: "To what extent does participation of vulnerable citizens in the ‘Supporter van Elkaar’ community-initiative of FC Twente, help these citizens to improve their Non-cognitive personal competences? In this evaluation-study (Pedersen, Nielsen and Kines, 2012) we will use an interrupted-time series design based on a pre-test and a post-test (without control-group). We compare data about personal competences of project-participants at two moments: before and after they started to participate in the SVE-project. Moreover, we will also determine to what extent citizens actively participated in the project. Furthermore, we will analyse how different interaction styles of professionals might affect the development of the personal competences of the project-participants. The information on the interaction styles will be gathered via interviews with the professionals of SVE, and via a survey for the professionals. In this way we can evaluate what the effects are of the intensity of SVE-participation on the development of participant’ personal competences. The survey-data used were collected before this bachelor-thesis started.
