The management of migration and the integration of migrants are among the central challenges of this time in many regions of Europe. An alliance of municipalities and civil society organisations from several European countries joined forces in 2016 to work together on integration and acquire new knowledge and skills. With the help of the "Europe for Citizens" programme, it was possible to intensify the exchange between the partners in a joint project.

from our experience that change in our professional life is more of the rule rather than the exception. We need to adjust ourselves to many new demands in our personal and professional life: new life tasks like caring for others, new job tasks, unexpected changes like job loss or wanted ones like getting that job that we want very much.

Alumnado de Formación Profesional presenta sus trabajos en el Festival Internacional de Cine de Gijon

El alumnado del Centro Integrado de Formación Profesional de Comunicación, Imagen y Sonido de Langreo (Asturias) ha decidido someter sus trabajos al contraste de la realidad real, al análisis y las críticas del mundo no académico. Alumnos y alumnas de este Centro Integrado de Formación Profesional presentan, en el marco del Festival Internacional de Cine de Gijon, (FICX), y bajo el título Estamos de Cine, piezas audiovisuales producidas y realizadas en el desarrollo de su actividad académica.

David Campbell Event Management facilitated the Broadening Horizons For Life Erasmus+ fully-funded mobility project that took learners from the UK to Spain where they gained a cultural education, sports knowledge and team building skills. The presentation covers the events that took place during the trip, provides great images and can be adapted by others to use for their own projects.

Purpose: Coaching is an approach that enables individuals to realize their own potential and strengths, to increase their awareness, to find themselves, and that encourages and supports the process of fulfilling goals by balancing different spheres of life. Adoption and implementation of coaching philosophy also have great importance in terms of teachers' relationship with students.

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.

What is citizenship education? How and where does it take place? What are thematic key aspects, approaches, methods? How should we structure courses for citizenship education and how can the education of democracy be implemented for adults?

Developing reading skills through the use of different metacognitive strategies leads to the development of reading comprehension, which brings us to the ultimate aim of this paper, which is to reveal the importance of a metacognitive strategic approach in developing reading skills which may, in turn, positively influence reading comprehension. The research question was aimed at finding out whether the metacognitive strategy input realised within the Textual Analysis course yielded better results in the reading proficiency of those groups which had metacognitive strategy-based input.

The project Bringing Young Mothers Back to Education – BYMBE has produced training tools in support of the work of social workers, teachers and trainers for the purpose of sustaining young mothers between 15 and 25 years old in re-entering education or training for a better access to the labour world.

On the basis of the Carer+ Digital Competence Framework, a complete programme structure was developed, containing a total of 5 interrelated modules organised under 3 themes:

  • Foundational skills
  • Managing social care with ITCs
  • Providing home care through ICTs.

The Virtual Learning Environement was created by using Drupal Commons and Moodle 2.5: 5 platforms were created: an original one in English and 4 for the piloting partners in their local languages (France, Italy, Latvia, Romania and Spain).
