ACTING UP addresses the problem of low level of participation of adult learners in lifelong learning. The project aims to exploit the potential of drama techniques to increase the motivation of adult learners. The methodology will foster the work of trainers and counselors supporting the adult learners. The programme will be implemented in 5 EU countries: Poland, UK, France, Italy, Portugal.
The project sets the objective to engage adult learners (especially those low-skilled with fewer opportunities) in continuing education through the use of drama techniques and up-skill them to find proper education and employment pathways.
ACTING UP focuses on two target groups:
- firstly, it will address adult educators, trainers, vocational counsellors, and socio-cultural practitioners who will be trained to use drama activities as pedagogic method to support vulnerable adult learners
- secondly, it will address adult learners at particular risk of exclusion, those who require up-skilling or re-skilling, often affected by unemployment, restructuring and career transitions, and contribute to social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development
The activities of the project include:
1. Research activity: development of European Guidebook on best practices on the use of theatre as a methodological tool
2. Development of the Course curriculum and materials of drama course for teachers. Workshops for group of 25 trainers/ teachers/counsellors who will apply ACTING UP methodology to their work (5 people per country)
3. Digitalisation of the training content and materials into VLE (Vitural Learning Environment) to support a wider audience and make the training materials more widely available to other counsellors across the sectors.
4. Designing the course for beneficiaries. The trainers involved in the project, once trained, will design a course for adult learner at risk of exclusion using the drama techniques.
5. Piloting the drama workshops by trainers in Poland, France, Italy, Portugal and UK. Exploiting drama as tool to motivate and engage adult learners. In each country 30 participants will be engaged. A final performance will be delivered at the end of the pathways.
