The EuroFUE-UJI team has attended on 20th and 21st January the first transnational meeting of the partners of the European project TTT-I, within the framework of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for adult education programme. The project Train The Trainer of Immigrants, Innovative Training Course for Adult Educators, whose aim is to develop and implement informal learning methodologies for the acquisition of new languages, has held its initial meeting in Kazimierz Dolny, a small town near the Polish capital, Warsaw.
The coordinators of the project Fundacja Ad Meritum (Poland) have been the guests of this first international meeting of the project partners which are the Association for Crisis Assistance and Development Cooperation Waddi from Germany, the Greek organizations Association of Active Citizens and Second Chance School of Mytilene and the FUE-UJI, as Spanish partner.
During this first coordination meeting, all the project partners have worked together to lay the basis on which the TTT-I, Train The Trainer of Immigrants project will be implemented. The main objective of the project is to develop a language training programme for immigrants based on informal learning methodologies. In order to achieve this objective, a whole training curriculum will be elaborated, which will develop activities for informal learning on the following topics: language cybercafes, language tandems, how to manage traumatic situations, awareness of cultural differences, the socio-economic environment of immigrants and multicultural mediation.
This training curriculum for immigrant language teachers will be implemented during two training courses that will be carried out in the framework of the project in Lesbos (Greece) and Castellón (Spain). In addition, during the next months the consortium of the European project TTT-I will meet in order to continue working on the development of an intellectual product that can contribute to improving the current situation of many immigrants in Europe.
