Magenta Consultancy participates in the following Erasmus+ KA3 project:
InClusIon of Refugee ChiLdren in Education (CIRCLE)
The aim of this project is to develope and implement innovative methods and practices to foster inclusive education and/or youth environments in specific contexts, supporting the inclusion of newly arrived migrants in good quality education.
Design diagnostic tool(s) for the assessment of prior learning and the classification of new students in Reception Classes and formal primary & lower/upper secondary school classes (incl. tool to explore host country language knowledge).
Design mechanism for the validation of prior learning of newly arrived migrants/refugees (especially those with no school leaving certificates) and equivalence of school leaving certificates with host countries certificates so that children can enrol in lower/upper secondary schools or vocational schools (or higher education).
Develop a certification system and procedures for the integration and progress of newly arrived migrant/refugee children in the various levels of compulsory and non-compulsory education (Certification procedures are required both for the children who have attended Reception Classes and for those who have not).
Provide training to educational leaders and educators (teachers, regional directors, school principals, school advisors/counsellors etc.) on the use of the developed tools.
Develop operational and/or policy recommendations to promote the use of the developed tools to decision and policy makers.
