EPALE conference in Brussels

WHICH ROLE DOES ADULTS EDUCATION PLAY IN SOCIAL INCLUSION?

The project ATHOME was presented in the 4th workshop on European funds in favour of adults education.

The objective of this workshop was to show the various European sources of funding (like Erasmus+ or the European Social Fund) that can be mobilized for developing education projects aimed at people with low qualifications and/or alienated from work.

During the presentation, we highlighted the opportunity given by the Erasmus+ programme to develop an interdisciplinary approach by gathering higher education students, homecare professionals, future homecare helpers, employers, training centres.

We also pointed out the innovative nature of the project linked with the development of digital culture for publics with the lowest qualifications through the MOOC, as well as the collaborative dimension based on social learning. The meetings with students and learners were an opportunity to change their perceptions on the homecare helper profession and to grow the cooperation between homecare professionals.
