Its aim is to develop a training programme for educators teaching adult migrants.
The Erasmus+ KA2 project REMINT
The Erasmus+ KA2 project REMINT, aims to give a contribution to a wider use of non-traditional teaching methods that can be able to make the learning of this essential skills set (a “Toolkit”) easier, more motivating and more effective for these groups of beneficiaries: asylum seekers, refugees and migrants
IIEF – Inclusion and Integration in Europe for experts in pre-school education, youth and social work (Erasmus+ /ΚΑ2 Strategic partnerships)
The aim of the project is the collection of best practises that help the integration of socially vulnerable groups.
“Helping Students with Learning Disabilities – Dyslexia“ (Erasmus+/ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for adult education)
The main project objective is adapting, testing, and disseminating an integrated system of transferable teaching materials to aid the education/training/decision-
making process in the following target groups: teachers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and entrepreneurs in the Non-Governmental education sector. The project aims to equip teachers, tutors and others with a duty of care for dyslexic students, with the ability to teach and support them successfully and efficiently by developing new educational skills; this, in turn, will provide the students with access to both knowledge and to the labour market.
“TALKING – Transactional Analysis Learning for Kneeling over the INtercultural Gap” (Erasmus+/ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for adult education)
The TALKING project aims to upgrade the skills of educators engaged in training activities in adult education involving immigrants. It refers to the communicative and relational competencies that are necessary to manage an educational relationship between people of different cultures and languages. It forecasts the development of activities such as implementation, delivery and dissemination of an innovative methodology, based on the principles of Transactional Analysis.
“Guidelines for the work inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers” (Erasmus+/ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for VET)
The aim of the programme «Guidelines for the work inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers» is to search and record the qualifications required by professionals working on refugee’s integration and hosting services and to match these skills with formal and informal education according to the European Credit system for Vocational Education & Training (ECVET). The final outcome of the project will be the publication of guidelines aiming to improve the technical preparation of the practitioners and the efficiency of the services provided. In this way the project will support the evaluation of the Reception System for refugees in Europe (Reg.UE 516/2014), and the communication of innovative practices and effective tools, as these will arise through the comparative analysis of the services provided in partner countries.
