What’s the “Pédagogie de chantier” ?

In the framework of Europe 2020 growth strategy, the European Union aims at reaching, by the year 2020, ambitious goals related to employment, innovation, education and social inclusion.

To meet these goals, the project is targeted to trainers and policymakers. It aims at training to “learning by doing” pedagogy that is to say an articulation between “teaching” and “results” areas that can be divided into devices related to vocational training or integration through economic activity. The aim is to enable young adults excluded permanently from labor market to find not only a job, but also a social reintegration.

In fact, each year many European young adults having “dropped out” of school end without any professional perspectives. This “learning by doing” pedagogy is a true alternative to dropping out of school by young adults and offers great opportunity to start tailored integration career.

The development of this program will be a laboratory of ideas, proposals and initiatives for the 6 transnational partners; some act in the field of training and insertion, but are not specialists in “learning by doing” pedagogy and project construction, while others are using this pedagogy, but not as an alternative to dropping out; still others are training centers or associations acting for inclusion of disadvantaged people and are willing to acquire and implement these new methodologies.

The aim of this project is to develop tools such a training module “Training professionals to “learning by doing” pedagogy, to promote and develop this operative pedagogy with structures and organizations able to implement and offer this pedagogy within insertion devices for young adults in situations of fragility in labor market.

Through this project, the partnership aims to promote work based on the concepts of “learning by doing” and project management pedagogies as factors for active social inclusion, to enrich existing methods and approaches within the partnership, to discuss specific devices and targeted to school dropout, to find out and promote good practices.
