European Project: Pause

European Project: Pause

PAUSE: Practices and Approaches for Upskilling Educators”, is aimed at exchanging experience and good practices for improving the skills and competences of educators working with vulnerable adults.

Within a consortium of eight organisations from eight EU countries and extended networks of stakeholders at national and European level, the project will develop a comprehensive database of practices and initiatives that 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.

PAUSE will also create an EU-wide network of over 80 associated partners which will get involved in the process of research, feedback, quality assurance, dissemination and exploitation of good practices focused on quality adult education and inclusion of vulnerable groups.

The project will develop and disseminate a comprehensive database of successful and effective practices at EU level aimed at improving the skills of educators working with vulnerable adults, building a European-wide network of practitioners focused on providing quality adult education. The good practices will be made available through a user-friendly search engine on the project website which will allow users to sort out their search preferences and search for good practices by impact targets, criteria, target groups, topics, countries, key words, etc.
