 What is Erasmus +?

Introduction

The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work. The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU’s commitment to investing in these areas.

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

Learning Difficulties

The most sensitive group of students in a school is the one of the students with special learning difficulties. Due to their singularity, these students are the most apt to abandon school or not to continue to the next educational level.

With this project, which is called “Equal educational opportunities for students with learning difficulties ” we’ll try to find the suitable tools to give to these students the chance to have equal opportunities in education to the other students. This will be attempted at two different levels, firstly through the improvement of the teaching methods for these students and secondly through the search for the best possible applied educational policy at the area of the curriculum and their incorporation in the typical school.
During this project:
  • There will be courses for math, physics, arts and computers  taught by professors specialized in education of students with learning difficulties. These courses were selected because the language (English) will not be an obstacle for the students who don’t have a perfect knowledge of it. The different organization of the teaching process by the five teachers will be evaluated by the students and the most appealing and understandable one or their combination will be chosen to be used.
  • The teachers of each subject by exchanging their experience will propose a curriculum applied to the students’ needs. The proposed curriculum will be discussed with the educational counselors for students with learning difficulties, in order to be used, if it’s possible, in a national level.
  • The coordinators from each country by exchanging their experience in the teaching of these students using different educational systems, will try to propose the best possible way for these students to be able to be included in the typical education.
The organizations that deal with students with learning difficulties will become aware of the outputs of the project at a local, national, but even at a European level through various events, press, etwinning, the blog and the website.
 
Five schools from five different countries that all apply a different policy in the education of the students with learning difficulties will cooperate during this project, in order to find good and effective practices to provide knowledge and education to these students.

The project is being led by the 3rd Gymnasio in Kilkis, Greece. The other schools contributing are: Gymnasio Latsion in Nicosia, Cyprus; IES Francisco Montoya in El Ejido, Spain, Woodfield School in London, UK and Ahmet Karacigan Orta Okulu in Konia, Turkey. Small groups of teachers and pupils will travel to four of the countries over the next eighteen months. During each visit there will be a curricular focus on teaching and learning in one of the following curricular areas: Mathematics; Art; Computing; Science. Each of the partner school will share their specialist practice for the co-construction of a differentiated curricular approach. Erasmus+ is funded by the European Union to create opportunities across Europe.
