Are you teaching reading and writing to immigrant adults, or are you interested in it? Do you want to upgrade your literacy tutoring skills? Would you like to get new culturally-sensitive methods for working with your students with a migrant background?
We invite you to a comprehensive in-service training workshop for literacy teachers and tutors. The content was designed keeping in mind the changes that are being implemented at the level of Adult Basic Education in Finland, but it can benefit also adult educators from other European countries.
