3. Support to learners

3.1. Well-being of learners

Whole-school approaches involve attention to the overall school climate. A safe and caring learning environment supports positive relationships for and between teachers, school staff and learners. For instance, physical settings that are safe, welcoming and stimulating, as well as sports and regular physical activities for all learners are important. Schools may invest in conflict management within common school spaces to promote a culture of dialogue and diversity. These learning and contextual conditions help create a positive climate and a sense of belonging for all learners.

‘Nightingale’ – a Mentoring and Integration project

In the Nightingale programme, a student from the University of Teacher Education in Zug (Pädagogische Hochschule, PH Zug) gets paired with an 8-12 years-old child from a primary school with a large number of children with a migrant and/or minority background. 11 students from PH Zug participated in the programme in 2016/2017. The programme supports the mentor and the child to get together for approximately two to three hours per week over a period of seven to eight months. During these informal meetings, the mentor and the child participate in activities together, such as go to the zoo, the cinema, do sports together, etc. The main purpose of Nightingale is to contribute to the development of student teachers’ cross-cultural understanding and intercultural learning through mentoring socially and ethnically diverse children. It also seeks to facilitate contacts between university students and school children, linking the gap between theory and practice in teacher education.
