Through previous experience in being a partner in KA2 strategic partnership, we would like to be involved as partners in the project about learning environments, teaching methods, best practices, rural challenges of education and many others. Main focus is to pre-school, primary school level teaching as well as adult education.
Located in Eastern part of Latvia in city Preiļi, we are NGO with more then 75 members in ages from 1 year to 76 year old. We have established and are developing kindergarten and school with alternative teaching approaching, with main focus on outdoor education, Montessori, Waldorf, Humanistic pedagogy, TRIZ pedagogy.
We consider ourselves as education innovation laboratory as that is what we believe the future of education should and must be. As we haven't found that and were met with strong resistance for change in existing environment of state schools and kindergartens, we established and are developing our own for already 4 years extremely passionate to deliver quality education. We previously have done Nordplus Junior project (we were coordinating NGO), we are quite active in project field, we are hosting EVS volunteers as learning part of intercultural education. We are eager to share what we have learned and achieved already and the way we are in. We have made methodological materials have done amazing projects within EU and Nordplus Junior funding.
We would like to be partners for KA2 projects as coordinators in Latvia. We have high competition and quite low available funding scope even if we have good idea, otherwise we are fully ready to be equal partners and give input towards successful project implementation.
We would like to be a partner and would be involved with our school and with local community too. We are interested in best practices, teacher skills and competence development. If you feel we could fit your project, contact us to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you find our school to be interesting for you, I am up for a call, email exchange or any other means of online communication.
