Beginning 2023 we joined the project! The leader from Poland – Foundation Education Development and Innovation and Irish partner EDUSMART Training Centre Limited have been cooperating for more than 1 year under this project. They have prepared already some reports – please see the report in English: https://www.feri.org.pl/pliki/EDUKATOR/RAPORT_EDUKATOR_2022_EN.pdf
IMPULSI started cooperation within task 2 which is educational materials. Task 2, resulting from the work conducted in partner countries and international meetings, has been ultimately determined as follows:
The materials will be prepared based on the best standards. They will also take into account the specifics of adult learning and their needs.

The aim of the module is to prepare tools and guidelines from various applications and online programs that trainers can use to plan and design training/workshops/courses for adults, including those with fewer opportunities. The goal is to enable trainers to independently plan and implement training from A to Z in any situation or location without relying on technical or logistical support from training companies.

Similar to concentration, the ability to ENGAGE participants in the group process is crucial for trainers. This will lead to the most beneficial outcomes for the participants. To achieve this, techniques, tools, and sample programs/exercises should be provided to help focus participants’ attention during training and build their engagement throughout and, if possible, even after the training. It should also cover the dynamics of group processes and understanding the changing needs of the group. Collaboration within a group can take various forms, but it is important for the trainer’s exercises and skills to influence group engagement, attention focus, synergy, and a pleasant atmosphere. This aspect is particularly significant in groups of individuals with fewer opportunities, where trainers often encounter barriers to entry, group concerns, insecurities, and mistrust.
That is our challenge for 2023!
