Name: Reinforcing cOmpetences to Build Inclusion through a New learning methodology

As an answer to the increasing number of early school leavers, many countries in the EU have developed second chance education programmes. Obtaining minimum qualifications prevents children on the move from vulnerability, exposition to abuse, exploitation and trafficking.

To ensure that children with a migrant background complete school education ROBIN wants to equip the teaching staff involved in programmes of second chance with tools that extend the capabilities of specific support. ROBIN enhances the exchange of best practices between educators and develops integrated training methods that bring together learning, coaching and support by means of psychosocial activities.

The aim of ROBIN project is to support teachers and pedagogical staff to reinforce their personal and social capabilities for specific support and successful social integration of students from marginalized groups affected by early school leaving. Thus children “on the move” will be better prevented from early school leaving and the risk of social exclusion.

 
  • Developing a curriculum and integrated learning methodology which contains useful information and practical activities aimed at preventing the early school leaving of children and young people from migrant or disadvantaged background
  • Creation of a Handbook for teachers “Migration and inclusive education” - primarily intended to be a useful tool to support the training of pedagogues and other professionals who come into contact with children and youth affected by migration, such as school principals, pedagogical staff, child care professionals, psychologists and social workers.

ROBIN contrubuted in two years time to change the perspectives and perceptions of hundreds of educators by involving them in hands-on activities, demonstrating and trying out children and youth affected by migration can be educational and psychosocially supported in their quest for a second chance in life.
As you went through section after section, you probably noticed that behind all training activities and all our endevours, just one aspect makes all the difference and that is dedication.

During the events representatives of Know and Can Association will present the innovative learning methodology based on experiential learning by means of psychosocial activities. The new methodology is specifically aimed at the so-called "Children on the move" (refugees, migrants dropping out of school, representatives of minority groups, etc.) and aims to increase their interest in the training process and prevent them from dropping out of school.

We are happy to inform you that the first intellectual products created in the frame of project ROBIN Reinforcing cOmpetences to Build Inclusion through a New learning methodology №2015-1-RO01-KA204-015001 are already accessible on the website of Know and Can Association and could be downloaded free of charge.

The project ROBIN supports trainers and educators to reinforce their personal and social capabilities for specific support and successful social integration of children with migrant backgrounds affected by early school leaving. Thus children in a migrating situation will be better prevented from early school leaving and the risk of exclusion.

As an answer to the increasing number of early school leavers, many countries in the EU have developed Second Chance education programs in order to reintegrate children and youths in schools so that they can obtain minimum qualifications. Children enrolled in Second Chance programs are mostly underqualified early-school leavers, who have difficult access to employment and often lack basic social skills to adequately integrate into the society, thus making them more vulnerable and exposed to abuse, exploitation and mistreatment.

Many of these children and youths have migrant background (children on the move) which makes them especially vulnerable. Therefore there is an immediate need to develop inclusion programs and adequate teaching methodologies to encourage migrant children to stay enrolled in education programs and lower their marginalisation.
