European Interaction Guidelines for Education Professionals when working with Children in Juvenile Justice Contexts

  • 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 and learning professionals working in juvenile justice system, based on the previously developed European key competency profile.
  • Improving the management of teaching and 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.
