3. Support to learners

3.2. Learners' participation in school life

Learners need to feel ownership of their learning and be given the opportunity to voice their views. Being active in decisions and activities of the school increases a sense of belonging and may help learners to develop leadership and social skills. Proactive efforts to engage marginalised learners and ensure their voices are heard are essential.

Local Engagement for Roma Inclusion (LERI) - Multi-Annual Roma Programme

LERI is a qualitative action research project under FRA’s multi-annual Roma Programme. It was developed in response to the European Commission’s Communication on an EU Framework for National Roma integration strategies up to 2020. LERI brings together local authorities and residents, in particular Roma, to investigate how they can best be involved in Roma integration actions, and identify which aspects of these actions work, which do not, and why. The aim of the project is to facilitate the engagement of all local stakeholders, including Roma, in joint efforts to enable Roma inclusion. The experience gained and the lessons learned during the process will help improve the design, implementation and monitoring of Roma integration policies and actions at the local level.

School innovation in Europe: non-formal education and student engagement to support better achievement and social competences at the Ion Luca Caragiale School in Tulcea

At the end of the 1990s, the first attempts to innovate at school level started with some primary classes being organised based on the ‘Step by step’ alternative pedagogy system. This meant that there were two teachers per class and that the learning process was organised around teams of students, rather than based on an individual learning. The change happened in response to requests from parents, and the school continues to offer both regular and ‘Step by step’ classes at primary level, with all students attending regular classes during lower secondary education (from 5th to 8th grade).

The ‘Different school’ (‘Şcoala altfel’) programme, introduced in 2011, offers an entire week of the school year dedicated to non-formal education. Partnerships with NGOs and the local community have also led to the implementation of several projects involving students in all stages, including planning and evaluation stages.

School innovation in Europe: School innovation in Europe: non-formal learning and entrepreneurship training in the Economics High School of Buzău

The school practices several innovative initiatives:

- The ‘Exercise company’ supports students to go through all the steps of setting up a company, from the creation of its administrative structure to its daily management, supporting students’ entrepreneurship competences. This project is regarded very positively by the whole school community and national authorities.

- The ‘Different school’ (‘Şcoala altfel’) programme significantly changed the relationship between students and teachers, thanks to its flexibility. Coupled with the participation in trainings of non-formal education by the teaching staff and practices acquired during Erasmus+ projects, it helped to reshape the educational process at the school.

- Teachers have been involved in curricular innovation dedicated to their particular field of study (tourism and economics) while members of committees set up by the Ministry of Education and the National Centre for the Development of Vocational Education (CNDIPT) contributed to the renewal of the national curriculum.
