5 – 9 September 2022

Katowice, Poland

The consortium of the project Education for Deeper Social Integration – From Theory to Practice met again in Katowice, Poland, for a training course. The training course was organised by the Polish partners in the project, Fundacja Europejski Instytut Outsourcingu, between 5 and 9 September 2022 and was attended by two representatives from each partner organisation — Epeka Slovenia, Universita Degli Studi Di Roma Unitelma Sapienza, Epeka Berlin, Cumbria Credits Limited, Regional Cluster North- East, Epeka Serbia and Fundacja Europejski Instytut Outsourcingu.

The aim of the training was to highlight the role of common European values, acceptance of other cultures, religions and lifestyles in educational processes in order to strive for the promotion of social integration of people with fewer opportunities.

Education for Deeper Social Integration – From Theory to Practice primarily addresses the development of competences of teaching staff, which is involved in projects and programmes of adult education. Based on our previous experience and experiences of our partner organisations in this field, there are numerous shortcomings, especially in relation to education of vulnerable groups, that require differently structured approaches, a higher level of empathy and good understanding of intercultural differences as well as the ability to solve conflicts, that can arise out of these circumstances.
