Erasmus+ Projects

York Associates is proud to partner with other education and training organisations across Europe on various educational and social projects.

These projects are co-financed by the European Commission, and seek to improve social and pedagogical outcomes for a number of different target audiences in Europe. Scroll down to find out more about each of the projects on which we are currently working.

L2 Lifestyle

 The L2 Lifestyle project exists to increase language learners’ motivation across Europe. Language learners want to find some meaningful connection between the words and phrases they learn and their deep desires and motivations for learning a language. Incidentally, so do we – we’re all learners of other languages or have experience of teaching languages and running language schools across Europe. But we believe we need to rethink some of the techniques we use to teach languages.

The L2 Lifestyle project upskills language teachers in using coaching techniques in the L2 language classroom. We provide L2 language teachers across Europe with the necessary tools and knowledge to be able to offer more effective language learning to their adult language students.

All In

The ALL IN Project is an innovative Erasmus+ Project focusing on the effective linguistic and cultural integration of refugees and immigrants into Europe. Currently, there is still a significant gap between the aspirations of policy professions and the reality of integration.

ALL IN aims to build bridges to overcome this gap by 

 offering innovative solutions in key areas. Central to the ALL IN project is the view that successful social inclusion requires the engagement of both members of the host society as well as the efforts from immigrants and refugees to achieve long-term results and benefits for all.

Through this project we will develop and provide relevant and engaging educational material providing real insights and practical tools for living in a new environment, alongside teacher training to support educators in the culture and language sector to support immigrants and refugees with new skills.

SEN Toolkit

The SEN Toolkit aims at improving provision of inclusive practices and identification strategies for teachers in mainstream classrooms in Europe that include learners with category B special educational needs.

The aims of the project are to create a digital learning course, which is an online, self-paced course based on The SEN Blueprint, a series of building blocks used to design learning 

programmes for teachers working with learners with SEN, and created to offer teachers a chance to learn about how to make classrooms more inclusive places for people with SEN. Moreover, the project also intends to help teachers and other education stakeholders develop their skills as a local agent of change with our ‘train the specialist’ materials bundle.

Dyslexia Compass

 Dyslexia is not simply a phonological processing difficulty – the condition can affect a child’s memory, their ability to organise herself, and even their ability to follow directions. Ultimately, statistics show that as a dyslexic child progresses through school and into adulthood, it can affect their mental health. But there is no standard measurement for dyslexia. Different countries’ official associations, as well as their national governments, have not agreed on a reliable way of measuring how many dyslexics there are, and without 

such a measurement, the prevalence of dyslexia appears to change from one country (or even federal state within a country) to another. 

The Dyslexia Compass can change all this. Designed to create an inter-body understanding of the pervasiveness of dyslexia across cultures, the Compass can make a game-changing contribution to provision for early years education and the children it serves, creating a real difference to the lives of millions of children across the continent.

Intercultural Mediation

Intercultural mediation is an internationally recognised 

 tool for overcoming the barriers to key services such as health, social protection, education, justice and law enforcement and in finding employment, that are very often experienced by people from minority ethnic backgrounds. The practice involves a trained Intercultural mediator facilitating cross-cultural communication and mutual understanding between a service provider and clients from minority ethnic backgrounds with the objective of achieving a high quality of service and outcome.

The aim of this project is therefore to share and further refine and customise, the learning, training and practice of Intercultural Mediation by delivering training programmes in Intercultural Mediation, devising a guide for best practice in Intercultural Mediation, and creating a new standard for the professional role of Intercultural Mediator across Europe. 

CC4J

 This project aims to develop, test and set in place a working methodology for starting or improving the career guidance process in the criminal correctional justice (CCJ), focusing on the competencies needed to manage own career. This will be done with direct end user involvement (prison staff), employers (prison administrations), work place (prison), further training (companies and NGOs).

Our efforts are focused on putting on the European public agenda the need of a structured and guided approach to career management in prison system, starting with the involvement of the direct interested parties. This will be done with direct involvement of prison administrations, trade unions and international professional bodies.

Project 3R

 The Purpose of the 3R project is to improve the social adaptability and resilience of offenders and ex-offenders, to promote their reintegration to society, and as a result to reduce recidivism. The project plans to show the importance of the application of Emotional Intelligence tools and strategies for inmates who will be released within 6 months in order to reduce the levels of recidivism.

The project aims to create not just activities and products for prison staff to upskill them on the soft skills they need to support inmates in their attempt to reintegrate into society, but also materials for inmates, providing them with learning material to develop the main soft skills they need to manage in the last 6 months before releasing and 3-6 months later in order to avoid recidivism
