The earlier good experiences from Grundtvik-projects are the main reason for this application. Positive experiments from international co-work have been important for our staff, part-time teachers and students. It is important to continue to develope our organization and to offer different options for our staff and part-time teachers to take a part to international training. Knowledge, experience, networks and good practices can be transferred in to our oraganization and also wider to our stakeholders (municipalities, other educational organizations, students, communities, assosiations).
We made a questionnaire for our staff and teachers, and the result is that many are interested about international training and courses. Taking part to a training means also some duties: you have to share the new information and good practises with the whole organization by using staff trainig or mentoring methods. There are 20 person who are interested taking part to training, representing administrative and planning staff, full-time teachers and lecturers on a number of different groups of substances (languages, arts, crafts, sports, music).
If financing for these mobilities is granted, we will search most appropriate training / courses which satisfies both criteria set by the organization (networking, new teaching methods and adult pedagogy), as well as personal criteria (professional skills and knowledge, communication and ICT-skills)
The methodology we prefer is lifelong learning in different areas of the following key skills: lifelong learning and ongelmanratjaisu, interaction and cooperation, initiative, communication and media skills, technology and information technology as well as active citizenship and different cultures.
The expected results are: the growth ofe the participants professional knowledge and skills, inceasing the adult pedagogical knowledge and skills, new international networks, a new understanding of the opportunities of educational technology. This personal knowledge should be transferred as a part of the organization's expertise by training and mentoring staff and part time teachers.
The long-term positive effects are: increased positive attitude toward adult education, training and learning, new ways and methods to use educational tecnology, new networks that help us to plan international projects by ourselves or together with our stakeholders (Erasmus+, LEADER-projects) Also there are possibilities for direct teachers exchange if we found good and reliable connections to adult education organizations.
