On the Move: Lifelong Learning Best Practice Handbook available

By April 27, 2016 News No Comments

The latest on the Erasmus+ On the Move project, on which Superact are working with partners from Germany, Lithuania, Austria, Sweden, the Netherlands and Italy to find best practice methods of supporting adults in to employment, has arrived from Europe:

We are proud to present to you today the main outcome of our European project – our handbook with 32 best practice examples on how to reach persons remote from adult/further education and on low-threshold learning opportunities. You can access the handbook here.
Our partnership researched more than 100 projects all over Europe and in the handbook we describe 32 of them which we and experts from the field considered as the most appropriate to learn more about outreach activities in Lifelong Learning, and learning opportunities for people on the verge of being left out of the adult education system. In our opinion it is necessary that we as professionals go mobile and provide these educationally remote target groups with educational guidance and with low-threshold learning opportunities in their communities.

We consider this method as a way to establish learning models and settings which follow a target-group centred approach, and which foster motivation, self-confidence and socialising amongst its users. The best practice portraits include projects for low-skilled workers, migrants, people from vulnerable groups and general public. We hope they will provide inspiration and ideas for more best practice in Europe!
Furthermore the partners from Austria, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden and the UK have visited six of the best practice projects and produced short videos on the work in the projects. We are currently putting final touches on the best practice videos and will provide these online by the end of the project in summer. In our final newsletter we will inform you on the launch of the final version of the website, including all best practice projects, the handbook and videos.

All partners will also organise regional dissemination events where participants can get further information on our work in the project, where we will show the videos and provide the printed versions of our handbook. If you would like to visit our dissemination event please contact patsy@superact.org.uk for further information.

Additionally team training will present On the Move in Brussels at a conference on 13th May.
We would like to share our work with you and hope you may find inspiring insights or approaches to rethink the way we reach people on the verge of being left out of Lifelong Learning. If you have any questions on the project, please contact us!
