Education policy discussed at EIGEP kick-off meeting
Representatives from Portugal, Romania, United Kingdom and Lithuania met at the BSAFE LAB at Beira Interior University during two days (30th November-1st December, 2015) to discuss the reduction of disparities in the learning outcomes of the educational experience of a child within the juvenile justice, compared to the ones delivered in mass education.
The EIGEP project aims to:
Improving the learning outcomes of education in juvenile settings through:
– Developing a European key competency profile for the child and youth learning professionals working in juvenile justice;
– Developing a modular, tailor-made induction support for teaching & learning professionals working in juvenile justice system, based on the previously developed European key competency profile.
Improving the management of teaching & learning professionals through measures to develop the learning dimension of the juvenile justice system in the partner countries and at European level, by:
– Mainstreaming the induction support and its components in juvenile justice system and alternative systems that support the education of children and youth offenders, at educational department and staff management level;
– Promoting in the European public agenda the juvenile justice education, its paramount importance and the key measures needed for the learning outcomes to improve.
