Welcome to the InterTrainE online course!
InterTrainE stands for Intercultural Training for Educators, and the focus is on Educators of Adult Migrants.
The InterTrainE course was developed as part of an EU-funded project, led by Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, with 6 European partners:
The course has been designed on the basis of extensive research conducted by the project partners from 2018 to 2020. This research involved: a) desk research on the theories, models and case studies underpinning adult migrant education; b) a needs analysis on Intercultural Training for Educators of Adult Migrants, which consisted of online questionnaires and face-to-face interviews with educators and migrant learners in all partner countries; c) a ‘market-research’ style research of available training courses in all partner countries to ensure that our course has added value and does not duplicate available offerings. We designed the InterTrainE curriculum on the basis of these research findings. All our project outputs, including a Trainers’ Handbook and the Course Syllabus, are freely available on our website in all partner languages (EN, IT, GR, FI): http://intertraine.eu/outputs
The InterTrainE course is divided into 4 Modules and each Module consists of 4 units.
Module 1: Theoretical Background, Basic Principles and Concepts
Module 2: Intercultural Competences in the Context of Migration
Module 3: Adult education practices in intercultural contexts
Module 4: Impact and global citizenship
certificate of completion is issued to learners who complete the course and
achieve a minimum of 70% in each Module. Learners can choose to complete part
of the course according to their training needs, however they will not receive
a certificate of completion if they do not complete all 4 Modules.
There is a discussion forum where you are invited to ask questions and discuss key concepts or case studies in the course under the principles of peer learning.
Please start the course by reading the Course Syllabus.
We hope you enjoy the course!
