FSM will be collaborating with the Learning Support Unit and Student Liaison Manager at MCAST, to develop an accredited 3 ECTS study unit (Level 5) for teachers of Further Education, on Migrant Inclusion in Lifelong Learning. The study unit will be developed under the scrutiny of MCAST's quality assurance, verification and accreditation processes. This module will be designed with the help of partners in Cyprus, Sweden and Slovenia, and will be tested and accredited by MCAST to train teachers in inclusive pedagogies.
The module will strengthen the competence profile of teachers, and will therefore support recruitment and selection, as well as induction of teachers in this area of demand. It will be developed as a blended module, including classroom lectures and online components. A non-formal training course will also be developed by the project, to train migrant communities and peers in confidence building, mentoring and cultural mediation, and a learning support programme will be developed for learning support staff of lifelong learning institutes.
