Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe

 
 

European policies projects and funding

Education at all levels is a key part of the integration process for migrants. Adult learning is crucial for migrants as they may require different skills from those that they used in their countries of origin for their new careers. It can also help equip people working with migrants with intercultural awareness and competences, easing the integration process for everyone involved.

Three years ago a project started. Four countries' teachers and their adult trainees participated in this. First meeting was held in Finland, the second one in Spain, the third one in Greece and the last and most striking, amazing one was in Turkey. It was beyond a project. It was like a festival, flag-day or feast. It was a merge of people from different countries. It was the construction, establishment of friendships.

Klaipeda University together with partners from Romania, Spain, Croatia, Portugal and Turkey is carrying out a Project „BUILDING BRIDGES: PROMOTING SOCIAL INCLUSION AND WELLBEING FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS“ funded by Erasmus + programme.

 

The general aim of the project is to promote social inclusion, equity and wellbeing for risk families in Europe through an intervention program for parents of children with special needs.

 

The Project aims at solving the following objectives:

The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is inviting applications to its CONFINTEA (International Conference on Adult Education) Research Scholarship and CONFINTEA Fellowship programmes. Successful candidates will have the chance either to develop research which will inform policy and practice in Member States or to develop national strategies to shape adult learning and education in their home countries.
