Call for proposals 2017 - Erasmus+ - KA3 - Support for policy reform - Social inclusion through education, training and youth EACEA/07/2017 Closed!

Objectives

This call for proposals will support transnational cooperation projects in the fields of education, training and youth. The call comprises two lots, one for education and training (Lot 1) and one for youth (Lot 2).

Projects submitted under this call under both lots should aim at the following General objectives:

  1. Disseminating and/or scaling up good practices on inclusive learning initiated in particular at local level. In the context of the present call, scaling up means replicating good practice on a wider scale/transferring it to a different context or implementing it at a higher/systemic level; or
  2. Developing and implementing innovative methods and practices to foster inclusive education and/or youth environments in specific contexts.

Each application must address one general objective and one of the specific objectives, which are listed separately for Lot 1 and for Lot 2. Both the general and specific objectives of the call are exhaustive: proposals that do not address them will not be considered.
 

Actions

Expected results:

Projects under Lot 1 — Education and training should lead to results such as:

  • knowledge and good practices (on inclusive learning, social and civic competences, critical thinking and media literacy as well as the integration of migrants) are widely spread in the learning communities;
  • innovative approaches are developed and tested, assessed and integrated into common practice or (parts of) systems;
  • educational leaders and educators in the learning communities become aware, ready and willing to practice inclusive educational approaches (e.g. collaborative pedagogical methods, whole school approaches, individualised support to learners) with visible engagement of families and local communities;
  • more effective support mechanisms and assistance services are developed and deployed to support education and training institutions and providers in implementing inclusive education approaches.

Projects under Lot 2 — Youth should lead to results such as:

  • improved social, civic and inter-cultural competences and skills of young people, including active citizenship, media and digital literacy, critical judgement and intercultural understanding; greater youth participation in social and civic life;
  • enhanced awareness among young people of their fundamental rights and sense of belonging to society, stronger endorsement of democratic values and engagement in practices of anti-racism, intercultural and inter-faith dialogue and mutual understanding;
  • improved outreach to young people from disadvantaged groups (e.g. young people in a ‘NEET’ situation or young people with a migrant background) by building synergies with the local community and making best use of existing networks at the local level;
  • enhanced capacity of youth work, youth organisations and/or youth networks to act as forces of inclusion by assisting young people to engage, volunteer and drive positive change in communities;
  • improved expertise in providing basic assistance or equipping of newly arrived migrants and refugees with the skills they need to integrate in a different society or which could be useful for reintegration in the country of origin when the conflict is over, as well as the appreciation of cultural diversity in the community;
  • better integration of newly arrived migrants and refugees and enhanced inclusive climate in the hosting societies, in particular through the planning and organisation of cultural or social activities at local level involving locals and volunteers where appropriate;
  • better information on social media, websites, public meetings, to support the volunteering efforts of the organisation.
