We recently delivered an E+ project where we sent both young and older learners to Portugal on a work placement programme.
As we were anticipating that this might be the first time some of our learners had lived away from home, we created a document titled "Independent Living Guide", which covered Planning for travel, work, etc, but also gave our participants tips on Health and Wellbeing and Personal Safety.
I think this could be improved and I would like to ask colleagues what they have used in the past to support their students?
In addition, what have you used to support staff, as we assume that as they are adults, they would be independent anyway, so don't require much support? Do others agree or disagree? What has your experience been with your staff or adults on projects abroad and have you prepared to address living abroad?
Your contributions, tips and best practice will be much appreciated.
