Integration: A Guidebook for the Future
Europe is a cross-cultural community and it’s co-creating content. All countries together are creating spaces for dialogue and providing contextual information from different point-of-views.
Multiculturalism is a manifestation of liberal democracy based on mutual tolerance and cooperation. Europe´s culture has always been in a constant state of flux, as it befits a society built on successive waves of immigration.
Diversity not only assumes that all individuals are unique, i.e., different, but that difference is indeed value-added. Within those changes, Europe has always been liberal-democratic, which implies a high degree of freedom of expression. That´s Europe, that´s what it is to be European!
Objectives: This course is for all those who are interested to improve their intercultural competences and learn interactive methods to support learners integration from different cultures into a collaborating team.
The course’s main goal is to develop and acquire effective skills to overcome barriers to integrate new immigrants, develop their intercultural understanding and develop a European dimension of education.
Course Duration and Costs

The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.

In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according to project type (job-shadowing, long-term,…).
