The best Erasmus+ projects promoting inclusion in education

This project aims to systematically survey and analyse Erasmus+ projects focusing on promoting inclusion in different areas of education, preventing early drop-out and strengthening belonging.

Strengthening basic skills is a central goal of European policy and offers to promote them start early in edu­ca­tio­nal bio­gra­phies. One in five 15-year-olds still lacks com­pe­ten­ces in reading, mathe­ma­tics or science (OECD PISA Study, 2018). Around 10% of young people in the EU drop out of education and training early, and only 84.3% of 20–24 year olds have completed upper secondary education (Eurostat, 2020). Children from poorer areas and families do on average worse at school than their more pri­vi­le­ged peers. The Covid 19 pandemic has high­ligh­ted these chal­len­ges even more.

In this project, 3s conducts a syste­ma­tic survey and analysis of Erasmus+ projects with a focus on inclusion. It looks at the four pillars of inter­ven­ti­on, moni­to­ring, pre­ven­ti­on, and inter­ven­ti­on and com­pen­sa­ti­on in relation to the three risk areas: insuf­fi­ci­ent basic skills, leaving education and training early, and declining sense of belonging and well-being. The results will provide evidence for further deve­lo­p­ment and imple­men­ta­ti­on in policy and edu­ca­tio­nal practice at different levels of governance.

120 projects from all EU-27 countries and beyond are analysed and 15 of them are presented as good practice in a final report. Methodologically, the project is based on desk research, qua­li­ta­ti­ve inter­views and case studies. Monika Auzinger is on the research team for 3s.
