A NEW EUROPEAN PROJECT MADE IN ROMANCA SOCIETY
The project " Good Practices in Education Models in European Youth" , funded by the EU Erasmus +Programme , is a training course organised by Romanca Society (London) and it was taking place in UK - Kent, Finchcocks Oast , 9-18 March 2016 .
" Good Practices in Education Models of European Youth" involved 35 participants coming from Czech Republic, Portugal, Latvia, Serbia, United Kingdom, Italy and Turkey , all partners in the EU Program Erasmus + , the project being funded by the UK National Agency.
Local partnership was formed with Regent Group, Joy of Sound and RTV Unirea in order to offer the participants a broad experience while in the UK.
The main theme of the project was to learn about the good practices in educational systems in European countries.
Our goal was to share educational experiences and cultural differences either in formal or informal fields between young people coming from 7 different EU Countries.
The project involved young participants to explore these connections related to education:
1) Young people's labor market;
2) European Citizenship;
3) Intercultural Learning.
The implementation of the training course aimed and achieved to develop skills and attitude of the participants using informal methods to support participants integration and group building activities. The creativity of participants build up attendance to interactive activities; from workshops on the topic of the training course to visits to some historical places in Kent and London; from seminars to intercultural activities; from debates to role plays; from brainstorming to youth issues discussions; from mentoring to practical games.
The materials used and collected during and after the training course are used to prepare social media networks that is build up by all participants during and after the project. Also radio interviews featuring the participants views on the experience of the project are broadcast during the project.
