Since 2008 all European Educational Systems appear to use a Learning Outcomes Approach. Adopting a Learning Outcomes Approach when developing curricula is seen by many European countries as an effective way to promote more active learning and inclusive teaching. However, so far only Vocational Educational Training (VET) and Higher Education (HE) have used the effectiveness of a Learning Outcome Approach.
2SMILE WILL WORK DIRECTLY WITH DISADVANTAGED LEARNERS that are (or should be) in compulsory education in the UK, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Greece and Finland. Disadvantaged learners from each partner country may have a different profile, but have common needs. 2SMILE aims to engage specifically with youths from first, second or third generation migrant families, ethnic minorities, youths in poverty and those exposed to violent behaviour.
