Accesibility & Inclusion for Migrants – Erasmus+

About the Project

Accessibility and Inclusion for Migrants (AIM) seeks to create lasting impact on Vocational Educational and Training (VET) Institutions and their staff, enhancing their ability to engage migrants more effectively; promoting their social integration and raising learner achievement that empowers migrants to succeed within their host countries.

Research shows that Vocational Education and Training fails to fully engage migrants. In addition to lower participation rates, attainment is weaker and dropout rates higher compared to those who are indigenous. Our AIM projects tackles this disadvantage head-on by building capacity within VET institutions through up-skilling staff to better meet migrant’s needs.

AIM will provide professional development to all staff within VET institutions; enhancing the ways VET institutions approach inclusion and transforming the ways VET is taught by improving staff’s understanding of the issues surrounding hard to reach migrant groups, and the challenges associated with engaging and teaching immigrants.
