Inn2diversity, agreement N 2019-1-UK01-KA201-062089, Erasmus plus program
Project start 1.9.2019

EU remains among the most popular destinations for migrants, asylum seekers & refugees and teachers are not prepared for the new paradigm of a Europe that is becoming increasingly diverse. By one hand, European classrooms are becoming more and more diverse, but by the other, teacher profession remains largely homogenous and teachers lack experience in diverse schooling environments.
INN2DIVERSITY project focuses on:
1) preparing teachers for diversity and strengthening healthy relationships by providing them with a new non-formal process that stimulate their active engagement in career-long competence development;
2) diminish the application of measures/policies as suspension because suspension rates themselves are predictive of drop-out rates.
Concerning the needs of the targeted group - teachers and pupils - INTO2DIVERSITY proposes a new methodology – mentoring – as a system level approach to empower teachers with managing diversity in classroom strategies & tools to better engage students & transforming teaching in a healthy profession.
INN2DIVERSITY project has 2 main goals: 1) to reinforce competencies of the teachers to deal with complex classroom realities to better manage diversity and keeping students with disruptive behavior and disruptive academic engagement engaged during classroom time, by empowering them with the necessary competencies to improve positive relationships between them and this students
2) to create a mentoring model to support schools to transfer and replicate the good practices managing diversity and complex classrooms, and doing so offering them an additional tool to improve teacher’s levels of satisfaction in the classroom; reduce disparities in learning
