Project Background and project objectives: "Volkshochschule (vhs)" is an institute for adult learning, which is a non-profit organization. It is independent and politically neutral and ideologically focused. Vhs strives to provide good education, advice and orientation to all adults, especially to those who need help. It believes that everyone should have the same opportunities of lifelong learning and has the vital and important role of implementing the European agenda for adult education. Currently, there is rapid change in the structure of society in Germany and our community now consists of different nationalities, all with a different culture. In order to promote active citizenship throughout our educational programs and their implementation, it is very important to improve awareness of Adult Learning. Our role is to guide people who have only basic life skills and help them improve the quality of their lives while they attend our courses, which we make effective and comprehensive through our excellent teaching and learning. For this reason teachers and staff at vhs need to be trained and gain new skills to cope with this changing situation. The quality of teaching is crucial for successful adult education. Therefore we would like to give teacher and staff at our vhs the opportunity to learn new methodologies and approaches to education, particularly to teaching adults. The teachers will, in return, bring new learning skills into their classrooms to enable participants who need to learn skills for life to benefits greatly. Number and profile of participants and description of activities: We propose a total of 12 mobilities of Education will take part in the training courses. Aims-staff: Our aim is to raise the ability of our staff in speaking English and to gain more intercultural competencies. This will facilitate getting in contact with e.g. participants that migrated to our country and hardly speak German, in order to showing them the possibilities of adult learning. Aims-teacher: The aim is to raise the quality of English language teaching at vhs by developing new skills and gaining intercultural competence for teachers. The courses will provide input in a variety of educational methodologies, skills and techniques and participants will return to vhs confident and able to develop their teaching practices using the information they have been shown. As a result they will be able to enhance their own teaching bringing success to their learners.
