School failure and school drop-out

Socio-economic and educational inequalities

Inclusion of refugees and ethnic minorities

These problems call for new methodological proposals, which value the important work of teachers and support them, not only at an early stage of their career, but also at different stages of their professional life.

While it is true that there is an academic curriculum that prepares teachers scientifically, it is no less true that it does not prepare them to face many difficulties, which they will feel from the first year of activity.

On the other hand, teachers with more years of career and an in-depth knowledge of the educational system need to follow the students' current experiences.

This reality shows the urgent need to support them, by motivating them in terms of professional development and creating conditions to improve their effectiveness and consequently their satisfaction. This objective can be achieved with a clear focus on induction programs and in particular on mentoring.

LOOP, which is based on values such as diversity in education, equal opportunities for school and educational success, pillars of this strategic partnership, allows the construction of new pedagogical and didactic approaches, especially being focused on inclusion and cooperative work.

 

The project also aims to contribute to the provision of early career opportunities for teachers in training and in new school contexts of support based on the acquisition of pedagogical practices articulated in the contexts, in a perspective of intergenerationality, reinforcing the skills of teachers, trainers and teacher mentors, through resources and community learning networks.

The effective sharing of knowledge, based on cooperation between teachers at different stages of their careers, must be properly ensured so that there is no deep and insurmountable gap between generations of teachers, risking an irreparable loss of experience, which can be seen with the average advanced age of working teachers.

 

The passing on of acquired knowledge is not safeguarded in the training of teachers and it must be considered through a commitment to the enhancement of knowledge, of interpersonal relationships and the recognition of what this entails for the acquisition of knowledge, emotional and social development, professional performance and career motivation.

 

 

LOOP provides real access to:

1. Mentor Training Programs
2. Mentoring for Teachers
3. their implementation in consortium countries.
