Community Learning outreach projects

Dear Colleagues

I have been contacted by Ilkim Erdost, principal of the Volkshochschule Ottakring, a school for adult education in the 16th district of Vienna and a member of the district council. Ilkim is looking to get in touch with outreach adult education programmes in the UK, in particular outreach community based projects in the UK which they would like to visit within the framework of the Erasmus plus Mobility programme for Adult Education Staff:

They would like to learn more about outreach programmes in the UK within a similar context. Ilkim’s school also implements outreach programmes (mostly German language classes) in a multilingual community-housing neighbourhood, and the school is in the process of testing some of their teaching and learning methods through creative processes and art. The school’s local partners vary from other adult education schools to artists and performers or council projects.

Unfortunately time is of the essence as Ilkim is looking for a partner this week (to do with the Erasmus Plus funding deadlines I assume). If you are interested or would like to know more please do get in touch with Ilkim at:
