The LEI Project workplan has six intellectual outputs
A Research Methods Framework for undertaking the LEI Project Baseline Audit and Needs Analysis (BANA) with a focus on best practices to foster the inclusion of refugees/asylum-seekers and supporting young people at risk of early school leaving.
There will be produced 5 National reports (1 for each Country involved) and at the end the IO Leader will produce a final comparative report limited to the 5 Countries and focused on the topics of the inclusion of the young migrants/refugees in the school system of the hosting country and of the countermeasures to support the educational/social weaker students to avoid that they become early school leavers.
Possible index of the questions to answer include:
A best practice framework, coming from O1 results, for enhancing the knowledge and skills of Teachers/trainers, practitioners and advisers through multi-agency collaborative networking to improve the social and cultural integration of migrant/refugees and Teachers/trainers to better motivate and integrate the young students risking to become ESL.
The guide lines will offer a strategic and methodological framework for the LEI tools to be targeted to the trainers/teachers; they will be discussed with the National Reference Groups. The aim is to build up an innovative practice which detect and fight the prejudices and promote the co-operation and communication among the organizations involved with Migrant/refugees, school word and parents to offer a joint support for migrants/refugees and weaker educated national students to promote a better linguistic, social and cultural integration.
Possible activities to work with include:
A Pilot-Tested training framework and training programme for government/support agencies and teachers/trainers that supports the Language learning, employability and inclusion of Refugees will be developed by LEI Partners
Possible starting point:
Leonardo da Vinci
Starting from the LEI Path framework, three didactic modules will be planned by LEI partnership on: a) Language recognition (P0 & P1); b) Social Inclusion (P3 & P4); c) Competence recognition (P2 & P5).
The modules will be targeted to teachers/trainers with a specific attention to the final beneficiaries.
All the training modules (coming out from O3 framework and O4) will be tested in the 5 countries of the partnership by two panels (5 or more teachers/trainers and 10 or more R/AS and). The aim is to understand if the testers asses the product as user friendly and interesting. At the end of each test session a questionnaire will report the different suggestions and evaluations.
Then a final testing report, taking also into account the linkage with the productive system, will be produced and published on the web site.
At the end of the project a final document will be written up by the partnership; the LEI book will be articulated into two sections: the first will be the guide lines for a suitable use of the LEI products where we will stress the experience coming from the tests and the stakeholders suggestion and support the target group in familiarizing with the different tools. The second section will be focus on the appreciation of LEI results stressing how LEI methodology is able to guarantee an added value for the primary beneficiaries (teachers/trainers of the schools, practitioners of government/support agencies) and for the final beneficiaries (refugees and asylum seekers); the aim is to give value to our products and to attract the attention of all potential users to guarantee a sustainability of the project outcomes. It will be published on the web site and a book will be edited in the 5 different languages; then the book will be posted to a specific list of possible users for dissemination purpose.
