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 objectives are:

  • 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.
