"Fully Trained and Dedicated Teachers For A European School With Happy, Kind, Valued Children project" was implemented in our school between 01.08.2017 – 31.07.2019. Being part of a community affected by unemployment and poverty is a real challenge for teachers to achieve visible results with particular groups of students, therefore, the implementation of this project funded by the European Union Erasmus+ programme was a great opportunity for us.

A family learning together

Cath Harcula adds to the series of blog posts exploring adult learning and workforce development, focusing on family learning. The family learning workforce is noted to have struggled to evidence the impact of their work and that it requires an evidence collecting and sharing model to enable the sector to grow. Cath will be delivering the process model at the EPALE UK and Learning & Work Institute joint annual conference on 23 October 2019.

Equal opportunities for social participation—the central objective of publicly-funded adult learning—are essential in the area of digitalisation, too. General adult learning can be a strong partner for improving life skills in a digitalised world.

Quand le secteur associatif innove en faveur de l'insertion professionnelle des jeunes. Quelles pistes pour les politiques publiques et les acteurs de terrain?

Depuis sa création, le Fonds d’expérimentation pour la jeunesse a soutenu et évalué de nombreux projets innovants mis en place par le secteur associatif pour faciliter l’insertion professionnelle des jeunes, notamment les plus vulnérables.

Le 24 septembre prochain, l’INJEP organise une journée d’échanges autour des retours d’expériences et des enseignements tirés de ces démarches de mobilisation parfois inédites, qu’elles sollicitent les capacités d’un territoire, les compétences des individus, ou encore l’implication de réseaux professionnels.

The plan is informed by research conducted by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN). The ambitious targets in the plan will increase the total number of graduates with high-level ICT skills by more than 5,000 every year by 2022.

Those who will benefit most from using the resource include university / college heads and education leaders, senior university / college staff and those who work in further or higher education financial and funding teams.

Holistic education is an approach towards developing educational courses and programmes within FGU whereby teaching is built up around complete wholes that are meaningful for the students to work with. As teachers within FGU, you all have ample experience planning instructive and motivating courses. This experience can now be brought into play in the planning of holistic courses across both general and vocational subjects.
