The project

The project’s focus is on adults with learning and behavioural difficulties and disabilities and adult educators working in different adult education programmes, as inclusion and individualisation need to be achieved at the lowest level of the education system where adult education staff working directly with the target group has the main role in achieving the desired goal.

Training the trainers in adult education to be able to work with a diverse group of adults with disabilities by applying an individualized approach, will contribute to increasing the quality and the offer of adult education programs for adults with special educational needs and disabilities. Adults with disabilities will thus have a greater choice in further education, improvement of their own competencies, and active involvement in society tailored to their abilities.

The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

– Equalize learning and education opportunities for adults with learning and behavioural difficulties and disabilities

– Provide support and training to adult educators facing difficulties in responding to the needs of adults with disabilities and increase their capacity to adjust the teaching process to their needs

– Encourage the creation of inclusive environment within the adult education system

Project results

During the project life-cycle, the following results are expected:

How to achieve R(AE)L INCLUSION: In-Service Training Programme for Adult Educators comprising 30 hours of face-to-face learning and 20 hours of online learning. Within the programme, the goal is to teach adult educators about a diverse group of adults with disabilities they could encounter in their everyday work. Training will include introducing educators to the teaching methods and strategies they could apply in their lessons with the target group. The programme will be piloted and tested in local communities of the partners’ organizations.

Virtual Mirror Toolkit: set of tasks and an e-Diary for adult educators to complete and reflect on their work and performance after the completion of the training programme. This will help them self-reflect on their skills and knowledge, difficulties they encounter, and ways of improving their work with adults with disabilities.

Open-Source Online Platform for e-learning containing 50 hours of the online training programme, a forum for networking and counselling, tasks and an e-Diary for adult educators' self-reflection. The purpose of the platform is for adult educators to increase their self-directed learning skills, share their experience, thoughts, and doubts with other educators and their mentors, and reflect on competences they seek to develop during and after the training.
