The project SUSIPE wants to support professionals in adult education working with single-parents. The main focus is to share knowledge and experience on approaches, projects, methods and network structures for an improved support structure for the target group single parents in Europe and to integrate single-parents into the field of further education, training and the labour market.
To serve this aim the project consortium will share their good and best practice and design a wishlist out of best practice examples, recommendations as well as shortcomings, to-do´s and needs. This handbook will then be distributed among adult education providers, VET institutions, adult education associations and local and regional authorities to promote the empowerment of the support structures for single-parents. All the material will be accesible for the public by creating a project website, where all publications and project activities will be displayed. By doing so the project wants to enrich adult education and develop Pan-European ideas for the support of single-parents.
The consortium of the project partners covers a variety of organisations working with the target group single-parents. Members of the partnership are adult education providers, e.g. one of theses is implementing art and music as a way to support learning, a museum of labour and single parent associations. Therefore a broad variety of methodological approaches as well as the possibility to create new ways for learning and socialising for single-parents will be represented and shared within the project.
Innovative approaches and methods will be tested on their transferability by including learners from the target group and therefore ensure sustainable project results.
