Educational institutions and sport and youth associations in the Reykjanes Peninsula (south-west Iceland) are key-stakeholders in the government-led action-plan aimed at strengthening the area, following the bancruptcy of the airline WOW-Air in the spring. As a follow-up of a meeting on labour and educational issues between Education Minister, Ms. Lilja Alferdsdóttir, and local inhabitants in April, a specific task force was established within the Ministry. Its role is to formulate and gain support for an action-plan, built on the vision of the local population and the government.

The education sector, and in particular adult learning, plays a central role in the social and economic integration of migrants. For some time now, the migration-related changes in our societies have also been leading to changes in adult learning institutions themselves. In order to develop effective learning strategies for learners with migration experience, it is essential that migrants and/or their representatives and organisations are actively involved in the development of adult learning programmes in the medium- and long-term.

The HOPE project was created following the dismantling of the ”jungle” in Calais in 2017. It was initiated by Pascale Gérard, Director of the Department of Social Inclusion in AFPA, who leads the program today.  The HOPE project: accommodation and career guidance, combines a first phase of learning French in a professional context with a second phase in the form of a professional training contract.

The Free Thinking Programme is a special course designed for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking. This is an issue that often goes unnoticed in the UK, where we don't expect such crimes to happen. However, with more and more slavery crimes being reported and over 130,000 people living as modern slaves in the UK, it is clearly a much bigger problem than first anticipated. In response, Northern College has delivered the Free Thinking Programme, enabling students who are survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking to gain an education and enjoy part-time residency in the college while they complete their studies. This forms part one of a two-part blog post.

Adult education plays a key role in imparting knowledge about democracy, politics, political processes and social structures, particularly important in times of economic and social change. It should empower people so that they are in a position to exercise their rights and help shape the way in which society progresses.

 

Tinkering creates a bridging point between a learner’s personal interests and experiences and a broad range of possible learning outcomes. It offers valuable opportunities to engage all students in STEM and fosters a more inclusive STEM education. In this way, it is very much aligned with a Science Capital Teaching Approach: fundamentally, it is a highly personalised pedagogy, which allows the learner to follow their own interests and set their own goals.

The British Institute of Human Rights has released an online tool to provide information about human rights and enable the user to identify human rights violations when they occur.

PBL Handbook Summary

Within the project of First Technical School Kragujevac, Serbia - Project Based Learning as a part of contemporary teaching we have made this handbook that may concern all secondary school teachers who are interested in improving their work.

 We would like to share our experience acquired from our job shadowing activities in Italy and to encourage our colleagues to apply project based learning. Our students liked the project based learning classes, they were more active in studying  and that is why we hereby present two examples of our classes.
