In this section you will find a collection of good practices providing successful models for improving the skills and competences of educators working with vulnerable adults. Some of them are developed as national initiatives and implemented in a specific country, while others are developed as international cooperation projects with impact at European level.
The good practices address skills needed to work with three groups of vulnerable adults, considered a high priority on the adult education agenda, and namely:
- People from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as migrants, Roma, refugees and asylum seekers who can use adult learning as a means of strengthening social inclusion and active participation
- Elderly people who need enhanced learning opportunities in the context of active aging
- People with disabilities who need tailored educational opportunities for addressing their specific learning needs
The good practices provide successful mechanisms for improving the teaching skills of adult educators related to promoting interculturalism, dealing with cultural and linguistic diversity, promoting tolerance and equality in the class room , fighting stereotypes, racism and discrimination, promoting inclusion and participation, paying attention to specific learning needs, etc.
You can use their ideas in your work with vulnerable groups or for your new projects or events!
If you have any other suggestions for relevant good practices, please contact the project coordinator or the partner organisation in your country.
Below you can filter your search by country, impact targets or a specific group of learners. One and the same good practice can cover more than one of the listed selection criteria.
