DESCRIPTION:

The Supporting Migrant Inclusion in Lifelong Learning and Education (SMILE) project aims to build the capacity of adult educators to improve and increase the knowledge, skills and competences of both teachers and migrants in promoting migrant inclusion in adult education.

The project aims to develop resources to support all those who, whether in a formal or a non-formal manner, are supporting migrants to lifelong learning: policymakers, education institutes, teachers, and migrant organisations who can provide good learning environments in the community.

OBJECTIVES:

Teachers within lifelong learning and adult education programmes, who will have the opportunity for
obtaining certified training on migrant inclusion in adult education;

School administrators and education policymakers, who will be informed about gaps and best practices in
migrant inclusion in adult education, and provided with tools for improvement;
Learning support workers who provide psychosocial support to migrant learners, who will benefit from a
training programme;
Migrant peers and communities, who will benefit from non-formal training on how to guide migrants
towards education opportunities, and provide them with psychosocial and mentoring support.
