DESCRIPTION

If I asked you who was important for you during your educational development in your childhood, probably most of you would easily mention two significant roles: parents and teachers. These ‘key actors’ play such an important role in our educational path, not only because we learn from them and because they teach us but also because they inspire us and help to create who we are. It is easy to notice that both parents and teachers take part in non-formal and formal education of children and teenagers. This, it is very important to create the environment where the youngsters feel safe and they can develop their skills and gain knowledge while surrounded by supportive and integrated community. The message received by pupils should be clear: ‘we all are here for you!’

METHODOLOGY

The approach will be practical, experiential and based on an analysis of reality and the group concerns. Mainly, we will work on the forms of a role play, drama methods, group dynamics, brainstorming and assembly, encouraging reflections and creativity in order to expand some options and alternatives for action. 80% practice and 20% theory, by using multimedia presentations, videos and additional training materials, learning will be conducted in a relaxed atmosphere for all participants.

Additionally, the course follow-up strategy will be proposed to all the teachers in order to monitor the implementation of good practices in their schools based on the knowledge, skills and competencies gained by them during the workshop.

By completing this course, participants will be able to acquire new skills and competences that will allow them to considerably improve their relationships with parents in terms of:
