Topic outline

  • General


    Τhis Training Module concerns the formation of the overall understanding of the MAV approach from the trainers who will train the potential mentors.

    Emphasis is placed on discussing theoretical assumptions from which adult educators will draw ideas and practices in order to keep the trainees involved lively.

    It is interesting to highlight the importance of own life experiences of the mentors to be informing trustful relationships between them and mentees, based on the common starting point, named the understanding of the various barriers migrants confront in the process of integration.

    Based on positive examples our aim is to destructure stereotypes and ensure personal engagement and commitment to learning for a both sides integration.


    This part of the course introduces the learner to the ways that adults learn best. Each adult learner is an individual but generally adults have different motivations and reasons for undertaking learning than when they attended formal schooling as children. Some migrants may have received little or interrupted formal education during their childhood and they will need additional support and guidance to successfully undertake a learning experience as an adult.
