Second chance schools

The Foundation Tempus – EPALE National Support Service in Serbia is organizing a national EPALE conference entitled "Methods and techniques for the development of key competences in basic adult education", which will be held on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, from 10am to 4pm in Belgrade.

 

The School for Elementary Adult Education in Sombor (Serbia) is implementing a programme for functional elementary adult education intended for people over 15 years of age who quit their education. The 550 participants are organized in 33 classes in eight locations on the territory of several municipalities.

In addition to their main goal – providing basic literacy training for participants, the school also provides trainings for a number of vocational occupations.

Mobilizitaion starting with the aim of training confident,active,successfull and happier students gives teachers at Karanlıkdere Kılıçlar Secondary School (a school 25km far from the center)a chance to notice that there are some mothers who are illiterate. Therefore, teachers have decided to enable illiterate mothers study at Adult Literacy Education Course.This is a Turkey's Chairmanship Literacy Campaign launched by President Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN and his wife Mrs EMİNE ERDOĞAN .With this course it is aimed that illeterate citizens to be literate by attending these courses.  

During November and December 2018 EPALE NSS Serbia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and the Faculty of Philosophy – Department of Andragogy, is organizing professional development trainings for teachers who work in Functional Elementary Education of Adults Programme (FEEA). These trainings were developed by the Department of Andragogy and accredited by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development.

The 3rd European Vocational Skills Week will be organised in Vienna, Austria, from 5 to 9 November 2018. You are invited to register your event/activity under the European Vocational Skills Week by supplying the information requested below. For further guidance, please consult the guidelines.
​According to data released recently by Statistics of Estonia, 17.3% of 25-64-year-olds participated in level education or training in 2017, which is 1.6% more than in 2016. The increase in the number of adult learners indicates that the opportunities for self-development are becoming of increasingly higher quality, more flexible and more accessible to people

The goal most teachers of adult students have is to help our students become active citizens and to help them understand the society in which they live. How we encounter students’ current knowledge of society varies in the different fields we teach and we meet our students differently according to our different target groups. Also, the ways we approach, and in a classroom setting deal with, the skills required for active citizenship, are as many as there are teachers.

The Second Chance Project - a development of a Functional Elementary Adult Education System was introduced to the Serbian educational system in the school year 2011/2012, as an opportunity to harmonize elementary adult education with a European framework program of knowledge, i.e. key competences. Functional elementary education of adults (FEEA) lasts for three years and takes place through three cycles. If we look at citizenship education within FEEA, we can note that it occurs in all three cycles through two modules – Basic Life Skills (first cycle) and Responsible Living in a Civil Society (second and third cycle).

Four years ago the only three adult gymnasiums that offered the option of e-learning were: Rapla, Tallinn City and Tallinn Adult Gymnasium. Currently a small number of schools provide learning only in the class according to the Training rubric of the Maaleht as of May 25. It is interesting to point out that people come to the gymnasiums with an e-learning option from another end of Estonia when such a possibility is not available nearer to home. People, who work abroad, are especially thankful.

Early school leaving significantly limits the chances of young people on the labor market. Continuing education usually means better employment opportunities and range of individual benefits (e.g. health) as well as social and economic benefits for the particular country (including greater economic growth and social cohesion).

4. nationale ECVET Konferenz „Mit Berufsbildung ganz nach oben. Weiterentwicklung der Höheren Berufsbildung in Österreich.“

Die Etablierung der Europäischen Transparenzinstrumente ECVET und NQR in Österreich hat das Thema „Höhere Berufsbildung“ in den Fokus der bildungspolitischen Diskussion gerückt. Noch ist der Begriff in Österreich nicht formal etabliert. Es gibt auch keine abschließende Einigung darüber, wie er definiert wird. Üblicherweise werden darunter jene Qualifikationen verstanden, die auf den höheren NQR-Niveaus angesiedelt sind und nicht zu einem Bologna-Abschluss (Bachelor, Master, PhD) führen.

Game-based learning and Nordic learning designs

When we play games, we make mistakes 80% of the time, yet we keep playing. In a (great) game, mistakes a part of the experience of flow; we try, we fail and learn, we adapt our strategies and then we try again until we master the game. But when we work with second-chance adults or disadvantaged young-adult students whom often have difficulties learning, the exact opposite seems true; they might try, they expect to fail, and only sometimes learn to master the subject. So, what happens if we try to apply game mechanics and a sense of flow to learning scenarios for these types of students?

Jornada "Aprendizaje a lo largo de la vida en la Comunidad de Madrid"

ADEACAM, la Asociación de Directores de Centros de Educación para adultos de la Comunidad de Madrid, organiza una jornada con representantes de sindicatos y partidos políticos para debatir sobre la situación actual de la educación para adultos en la Comunidad de Madrid y analizar propuestas de futuro. La jornada tendrá lugar en el IES Vista Alegre de Madrid

It includes a course, trainer guidelines, evaluation tools and e-learning platform.

In this written work the basic explanations on functional primary education of adults are stated, as one of the biggest innovations in the educational system of teaching adults in the last twenty years. Also the features of this type of education are stated with the special review on teaching Serbian language. After that the goals and aims on teaching Serbian language in the functional primary education of adults are stated as well as the model for interpretation of the chosen teaching unit from literature.

This Rulebook gives a detailed overview of the requirements for the realization of the curriculum for the basic education for adults related to: school space, equipment, teaching tools and education of teachers, professional associates and andragogical assistants and a program of training for teachers, professional associates, principals and andragogical assistants for work with adults.

 

Including the latest amendments, this Rulebook has been implemented since April 7, 2014.

The basic education for adults in Serbia is designed and implemented according to the model of functional basic education for adults (hereinafter: FOOO) and enables the availability and the purposefulness of primary education for the adult population. FOOO is an organizational and program unit in the formal education system where adults gain basic education according to their needs, learning opportunities and labor market requirements.

 

         This paper studies new ways of leading VET Schools into the labor market, analyzing the trade and improving the relations between business and school to create a hospitable climate for business. In order to be effective and efficient, vocational education and learning should be linked to labor market needs to train students as future laborers and to contribute so on to the community welfare.

SECOND CHANCE SCHOOL OF PYRGOS ADULT SCHOOL's picture

We are a Second Chance School for adults and we are looking for partners in Erasmus + in order to change and discuss news ideas in the field in adult education. Our students are adults who come especially from urban areas and have dropped out from the primary education. So we have to find techniques and actions in order to make them more creative, self- confident in order to participate in the society against the social inclusion. In our school we had organised a project based on sustainability and we had created our own garden and plants.
