Parents Engage international pilot training

On the 16th, 17th and 18th of October, we had our pilot training for the Parents Engage project in the beautifully multicultural Palermo, Italy. It was an excellent opportunity to try out the teacher training handbook for the engagement of migrant families in school. With 23 participants from Lithuania, Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Turkey, and Germany, we had a very intense three days of testing the materials developed by the project consortium. Considering the valuable feedback received, the handbook will be finalized in the coming days and made available to everyone in English, Dutch, Italian, Greek, Turkish, and German on the project website:

Sometimes, schools struggle to find ways to support families with a migrant background meaningfully; most initial teacher training does not satisfactorily cover this topic, so we are glad to be able to offer this handbook to all teachers. This child- and parent-right-informed material provides theoretical background, practical suggestions, and self-reflection exercises for trainees. The training will be piloted by the consortium partners also in the local setting, in the local language, with the involvement of participants from the international pilot in Greece, Germany, Cyprus, Turkey, and Italy.
