Schola-un tutorat pour les éducateurs pour valoriser un bénévolatSchola-un tutorat pour les éducateurs pour valoriser un bénévolat

Initiated by the Collège Blaise Pascal (Massy, Essonne) together with riv conseil, the project Schola - selected during the call for proposals Erasmus + 2016- gathers a European team in France, Belgium (Karel De Grote Hogeschool, Anvers), Italy (Universita degli Studi di Perugia, Pérouse), Slovenia (ZRC-SAZU), and Poland (University of Jagiellonski, Cracow). The Schola project aims at offering new approaches to strengthen the education and training paths of prospective and practicing educators/youth workers ; equipping them with all competences and skills needed to deliver high quality services and address increasingly diverse needs e.g those posed by multicultural societies. It is an innovative project aiming to reduce disparities in learning outcomes affecting learners from disadvantaged backgrounds/with fewer opportunities.

The Schola project addresses mainly educators in the broad sense- professionals and volunteers working with youngsters facing difficulties at school or already drop outs living considered as learners from disadvantaged backgrounds. Its  aims and objectives  are: to acquire knowledge on the reasons for an early school leaving (ESL) and the strategies offered to struggle against it, both on national and European levels ; to motivate mentors – teachers and professionals in association - by understanding  the role they play in the educative community through extra-school activities ; to learn to learn on insisting on the key competences (EU, 2006) and the different types of learning (formal, non-formal, informal - Copenhagen process) and the combination between volunteers and professionals in the field ; to explain the benefits of  alternative pedagogical strategies, in complement to school, on the basis of  a voluntary experience (cf SAS project).

Success at school – SASSuccess at school – SAS

Initiated by iriv together with the University of Northampton, this project is financed under the Lifelong Learning Programme, Sub-programme Comenius. The main aim of the Comenius project « Success at School through Volunteering » is to propose to youngsters living in difficult areas a pedagogical approach to enhance a voluntary involvement to succeed at school. The project gathers six countries : France, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom and Slovenia. This project was awarded first place in the selection 2012 of the Comenius projects. It is offering a training programme to youngsters facing difficulties at school based on volunteering ; it will value this experience in the spirit of the Vaeb project.

 At the 2000 European Council in Lisbon, the Union defined the dimension of the school failure problem as : “The number of 18 to 24 years old youngsters with only lower-secondary level education who are not in further education and training”. An EU benchmark was set, that the proportion of early school leavers should not be more than 10% by 2010 (European Commission, 2006). By 2006 only six of the twenty seven Member States had met this benchmark. The average early school leaving statistic in the remaining twenty-one countries is 18%. This is nearly the double the benchmark to be reached by 2010-“ a real challenged” underlined the European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE) under the direction of George Psacharopoulos (The costs of School Failure – A Fesaibility Study, June 2007). The situation is different from one country to another : in 2007, the proportion of youngsters 18-24 years having left early school was 39,2% for Portugal, 18% in Bulgaria ;13,1% in France and 13% in the UK and 5,2% in Slovenia.
