Welcome to Forward trainer
The Forward Trainer
project has branched off from the FORWARD project, i.e. Forum for Reading
and Writing Difficulties among Adults. The objective of Forward Trainer is
to create and test a training course for union representatives, teachers
and trainers of adults, social workers and others who, in their
professions, are likely to meet adults who have reading and writing
difficulties. The course will try to empower the participants with
specific knowledge, information, pedagogical skills and approaches to
supporting adults who have reading and writing difficulties.
The projectís specific
- to gather experience
from educators who are already offering support for adults with
reading and writing difficulties.
- to compile, on the
basis of this experience, a handbook on how to use different
pedagogical approaches that help adults with reading and writing
difficulties. The handbook is meant for teachers, trainers and others
who are likely to meet people with reading and writing difficulties in
heir jobs. The handbook will be presented in eight different languages
here in this web page.
- to use the final
outcome as a basis for a series of international Grundtvig 3 courses
and a series of national courses in the local languages.
