Vicky Duckworth and Rob Smith discuss the Further Education: transforming lives and communities research project that involved interviewing learners on camera to build a picture of their personal and education stories. The stories allow the researchers to understand how an individual's narrative relates to socio-economic, political and historical contexts. A teacher's perspective shows that a shift away from an instrumentalist approach to teaching allows for better rapport with learners and encourages them to engage.

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.

Kaleidsocope training for migrant women was piloted in 2018-2019 in Finland, France, Italy and the UK. The particiapting women came from almost 30 different countries and more than half of them had a higher educational degree.

The results overall were very positive. In a nutsheel we found out that:

1 – The material was useful and empowering

2 – The material helps women during their first steps towards entrepreneurship and to understand their potential

3 – Women liked to share experiences and discuss

4 – These is a need of such courses in the society

A small team is the most important unit in working life. One needs many kinds of skills when working with different colleagues towards a common goal. Communications must be smooth. Everyone must be able to manage their own performance and some must also manage others. What kinds of skills are needed in this and how can one develop them?

We can all agree that the challenge for everyone is to make informed decisions throughout their lives. This concerns both the choice of education and how they go about their career decisions. This can involve thoughtful choices, decisions determined by circumstances, and seizing opportunities. But when we observe these decisions after the fact, we rarely find a strategic coherence, an organised rationality but more often a combination of what people desire for themselves and adaptation to chance. The unexpected often arises.

Trainers' Meeting Warsaw

Trainers Meeting Warsaw

We are launching a new form of events focusing on advanced trainers and facilitators development! Each month, a Trainers' Meeting will be happening in different cities across Europe. Winter season starts with Amsterdam and will continue through Vilnius, Warsaw, Madrid and Dublin.

How do you teach numeracy to adult migrants with little formal schooling? All adult participants bring their own histories of mathematics form their cultures and contexts to the classroom. Bilingual assistants may contribute to building bridges between what the participants know from before and what they need to learn in another society.

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.

Often, the concept and activities of Popular Education is considered as "French idea". Nevertheless, some researchers have wrote on it, trying to distinguish what is Non formal education or Adult education in comparison with Popular education.

This dossier shows different experiences from Finland, Italy, UK, Spain, Greece, France,.... The is a concordance of ideas, concepts and activities. Probably, the most important caracteristic is the idea of social transformation.

Knowledge in science have been treated as „serious“ and solid knowledge allowing to comprehend the basics and laws of natural world of physics, chemistry and biology and opening venues to prestigious professions in medicine or engineering.

Welcome to the ELTA Learning and Sharing for Better Teaching E- Resource Pack. The project Learning and Sharing for Better Teaching has been created by English Language Teachers’ Association of Serbia (ELTA Serbia) with the idea to provide English language teachers with a new, innovative and up-to-date teacher training which would help them improve their teaching skills and competencies. The project participants have seen Erasmus+ project scheme as an opportunity to create and offer new training courses and teaching material to all English teachers who feel willing to grow. The participants attended six different teacher training courses during the summer of 2018. Hence this E-Resource Pack which is designed to offer a set of classroom activities and useful applications to be shared with the wider EFL audience.

A library of over 600 different exercises to use during a workshop or training session. It contains ideas for Teambuilding, Energisers, Idea generation, Problem solving, Issue analysis, Action and other Skills. You can browse and use the exercises proposed by other users free of charge. There is also a possibility to sign for newsletter to get some new ideas on a monthly basis. 

This is an Erasmus+ funded project which aims to design and implement effective training tools for enhancing key skills and competences of (a) highly-skilled refugees and (b) the language teachers who work with them, and so enhance the employability and societal integration of skilled refugees.
