Project CASPAN

Creating an Adult Support Platform and Network


Programme: LIFE LONG LEARNING PROGRAMME

Action type: PARTNERSHIPS

Action: GRUNDTVIG Learning Partnerships

Content


Project objectives and strategy

The objectives of the partnership are to support disadvantaged adults through the establishment of an innovative platform/ forum for adult peer support in which current and past learners will be the driving force to influence, support and guide new participants and steer the production of relevant materials. It is our learners that have said that they are strongly influenced by their peers and would not have joined an activity/programme without peer encouragement and support. This project will set up, within each partner country, an adult network platform, a group of present and past learners who have volunteered to act as a source of information for others. They will organise themselves, under the auspices of each partner organisation through:

  • A platform/forum set up for the organisation to function
  • Training given to our adults to act as mentors in this field. Note this will use, as a basis, materials produced under the 'European Guide to Mentoring'
  • A website in which, initially only partners organisations will be able to pass ideas, although it is intended that this website will rapidly expand as the model of peer support develops.
  • Support materials will be generated between the learners, mentors and staff
  • Case studies will be produced, paper, on-line and through vidcasts
  • The sharing of lessons and experiences through the mobilities
  • They will be guided, towards the end of the project, to develop an EU adult learner platform.
  • The partnership will produce a final publication, for wide dissemination, to highlight the success of the project. The launch of the publication will be at a conference held during the final mobility. Our approach to the objectives will be from the adult learners point of view. This project is very much learner driven and from initial discussions, held with learners in our partners countries, they wish to use new and old technologies in acting as role models and mentors through their learner support platform. These 'adult groups' will achieve their aims through:
  • Setting themselves up as a voluntary group
  • Developing materials for publication, website, vidcasts
  • Investigating the best means to influence and support other adults
  • Participation in local information sessions
  • Setting up links with other peer groups
