Product Type teaching material
The QPA method is based on the studies and tests carried out by the working group of Prof. K. Polacek (FORTUNE Consortium) who developed an innovative theory on the fundamental bases of learning processes and created a psycho-educational tool just as innovative (QPA) which allows worldwide sharing of criteria to assess how learning processes work in relation to students of all nationalities, identifying their resources and the most effective way to strengthen them. The QPA method identifies and develops ways to support and motivate iVET students at particular risk of ESL, including students with migrant or Roma backgrounds, to fulfil their educational potential.
The transfer of the educational pathway includes its adaptation to educational and training systems, to various contexts and to the needs and requirements of cultural, linguistic and socio-economic target groups, including the use of ICT.
The project addresses the issue of ESL through an educational pathway based on learning processes in intercultural context.
