    Adult Migrant Low Level Language and Literacy Learners - An analysis and re-evaluation of current pedagogical approaches

    The learning partnership focuses on adult migrant learners with low level language and literacy and due to that have poor literacy and learning skills. The aim of the partnership is to raise teacher's awareness on the needs of these learners and improve the teacher's pedagogical and didactical skills. In consequence the migrant learner´s needs will be targeted more accurately and learning will be more successful. The target groups of the partnership are both teachers and learners. Learning partnership will seek approaches for finding out the real linguistic and basic skills needs of the learners with low literacy and learning skills. The key question is how the results of needs analysis are taken into account in the learning environment and pedagogical and didactical implementations in different countries. The learning partnership is about benchmarking, exchanging experience and comparing the activities. During the partnership there will be 5 transnational meetings which will focus on following aspects according to the expertise of partners: 1.the needs and characteristics of the learners 2.course content, including teaching methods and achievement assessment 3.teacher qualification. The participating organisations are experienced in the field of integration training and training migrants with low education which means that they lack learning and literacy skills that are essential for successful language learning. Teachers has to take into account these learners characteristics in the teaching and learning process. The context of providing language training varies in partner countries which makes the cooperation fruitful. Outcomes of the partnership will be summaries of the best practices and a comparison of teacher qualification requirements.
