In a dissemination event today the project entitled “Peer Review in Adult Learning to Improve formal and Non-formal Education was presented as part of Erasmus+. The Malta Union of Teachers, along with other organisations from different EU Countries who are participating in the programme.
The Erasmus+ project entitled “Peer Review in Adult Learning to Improve formal and Non-formal Education” aims at developing innovative and sustainable initiatives to support Adult Learning providers, specifically those of the non-formal domain, in approaching Quality Assurance in their organisation and training provision. Partners in this project amount to nine from different European countries including coordinators of the project Associazione FORMA.Azione srl based in Perugia, Italy.
In a comment during the event, MUT President Mr. Kevin Bonello stated that “the MUT since its inception has always had a dual role, and apart from discussing trade-unionistic matters we also have a professional role that ensures that the Union, with the expertise of its members, contributes to the education system. We hope that this project helps in addressing topical issues of quality in education.”
This event was also addressed by the Minister for Education and Employment and by the coordinator of the project, Ms. Sylvia Liuti from Italian organisation FORMA.Azione. Participants from Lithuania, Portugal, France, Hungary and Italy also contributed to the discussion along with other stakeholders. Certificates following Peer Training were also distributed during the event.
