“Non-Formal Education and Schools against dropout”

With this strategic partnership, we aim to study the impact a common, structured strategy led by non-formal education actors and formal ones could have on secondary school pupils (10-15 years old) at risk of dropping out.
We’ll pursue three objectives:
- Improving personal representations of school
- Empowering pupils, encouraging their participation and responsibility
- Fostering a good “living together atmosphere” and combating discrimination
Each objective will be declined into concrete actions:
1. Workshops on “self-esteem”; (tbc : workshops on “parenting”)
2. “peer mediation” training for the educational community and pupils; youth projects; European mobility
3. Workshops on “living together” (with a use of our previous European research-action “Educating for diversity”)
Those actions will target at-risk of dropping out pupils, identified as such by our partnering schools, but also the educational community as a whole: teachers, administrative staff, parents, pupils… They aim to reduce dropping-out rates by working on personal competences and by improving the general school atmosphere.
Our association wishes to have this project implemented at European level in order to adjust our techniques to other national realities and public policies, facilitating the dissemination of results, the durability of the shared practices and their turning into common policies.
We would like the strategic partnership to happen on a 36 months’ time frame.
The 1st year is dedicated to understanding local realities (methods, criteria used to identify at-risk pupils, public policies, relations between non-formal education and formal actors). Three trainings on our three main objectives will be organised (hosted by the three represented countries alternately). Two participants by partner school will be attending each of them. Those trainings will also be a chance to exchange best practices and improve our tools. That way, we should be able to have a common/European protocol to implement the 2nd year.
By spring of 2017, the educational community of each partner school will be trained and the concrete experimentation can start as soon as September, 2017. The next two months will be a time for identifying potential dropping-out pupils. Those pupils will then join our “self-esteem”, “youth projects”, and European mobility activities. Meanwhile schools will organize the global activities: peer mediation, (parenting), and “living together”.
A first assessment should happen by March, 2018, and modifications should be made to the common protocol if necessary.
In April-May, 2018, the youth project written by the pupils at-risk of dropping out should be implemented, including a European mobility. Afterward, our youth workers should help them identify their newly acquired competences and write them down in a “youthpass certificate”.
End of June 2018, our experimentation is over and our partner university work on analysing the collected data.
November-December 2018: Dissemination conference and publications presenting our results.
If you’re a secondary school from one of the 28 European Union countries, please contact us as soon as possible, and before the 3rd of March, 2015.

One school, one association and one university by partner country (2). Schools are expected to facilitate the experimentation, have their staff trained, share their already existing tools and methods. Associations are expected to train the educational community, be in charge of workshops with pupils, share their existing tools and methods.
The academic researchers are expected to help out the project by giving theoretical support on the three main objectives, helping build a common protocol, help with the understanding of the local public policies and contexts, help with analysing the datas, results and impacts.

If you need partner from Macedonia, we`d be glad to work with you. I`m Angela, school coordinator in the private high school SABA from Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. SABA is a private high school established in 2007. It has four departments: Business, Administration, Computer Science and Tourism. We have three branches in three cities in Macedonia. Today there are around 120 students (13-18) studying at SABA. Students at SABA have the privilege to experience an educational system that is different from the public schools in Macedonia. They are focused on the field they study (business, administration, computer science or tourism) and they not only have theoretical, but also have much practical experience. SABA has a collaboration with many institutions (Universities, Banks, Insurance companies, Publishing companies, TV and Radio stations, Law firms) where students from SABA often do practical work there. After the students finish high school at SABA they are really prepared to actually work in companies in the fields which they had learned for.

Dear Sir, We are an Upper Secondary School located in a middle town of 20.000 inhabitants in South Eastern Spain. We have 1100 students aged 12-18, with a high percentage of students coming from immigrant families. It’s been increasingly higher and higher in recent years, mostly from Morocco, South America and Eastern Europe. Our concern with these students is to help them finish their studies and to promote their integration in school and society through the implementation of programmes with families and collaborative initiatives with the social and educational services in the community. We have been involved in other European projects, and right now we are coordinating a KA2 project on art and human rights (http://art4humanrights.blogspot.com.es/). We would be glad to be one of your partners in your project. Please, email us if you need further information. Looking forward to hearing from you, Enrique Veganzones, europaruizdealda@gmail.com

Dear Friends, We have a Project idea. We are planning to apply for Erasmus+ KA 2 Strategic Partnerships grant in 2019 call. The coordinator country will be Turkey.

The project is aimed to allow the student to explore the living things in water and to be introduced to a new world, to acquire awareness about the situation of our water resources and their protection, with fun applications. From our partners we require the follwing points: Our partner needs to be a Secondary School ( Age 11-14) The partner school must be interested in raising awareness as regards protection in secondary school students during the educational program on water or they must have some ideas about it. Partner school should contribute to creating activities for the protection of the wetlands (intellectual output) Please see below for more information about the Project. COORDINATOR COUNTRY: TURKEY COORDINATOR INSTITUTION: TEMA PRIVATE SECONDARY SCHOOL ( Age 11-14 ) We are planning to work in consortium with Ankara University - Child Science Center. We need 2 partner countries. PROJECT TITLE: WATER SCHOOL PROJECT IDEA: The purpose of this project is to introduce and to familiarize our students to the aquatic ecosystems, which are one of our natural resources; and thus to develop a substructure to protect the water. Our wetlands and aquatic habitats are in danger and are disappearing because of the increasing effects of global warming in the world, and especially in our country. For this reason; the studies to protect the wetlands became very important. The importance of water for living things must be understood. On these accounts, as the Water School, we say to our dear partners; “Would you like to discover the water with us?” We will be looking forward to your reply.
