About the project

Inclusion with social education

underline

COSI.ed will uspcale the proven good practice from the Erasmus+ project; Marginalisation and Co-created Education (MaCE) in five different countries and educational contexts representing Southern (Portugal and Spain), Eastern (Poland) and Northern Europe (Norway and Denmark).

The model builds on the understanding that educational staff and the students co-create as part of a community of practice. Here the experts (educators) and the beginner (students) work side by side, learning together and developing knowledge and competence. By using the embedded methodology, the Indirect Approach (IA) and Equality Literacy (EQL), the co-creating entails communication giving voice to vulnerable students to understand their story (IA), and through this- identifying aspect of the young disadvantaged students’ situation that hinder their further learning (EQL). The young people learn about themselves, how to excel, the educational staff develop skills and understanding to socially include the young people. The initial hypothesis is that co-created education and training in which disadvantaged learners take part, educational staff, stakeholders and policymakers will contribute to educational and social inclusion of those groups who are usually marginalized.

The expectation is that the upscaling of the COSI.ed model to policy level will empower groups of disadvantaged young people all over Europe, radically increasing their educational success and completion rate and give European educational staff the knowledge and skills to social include vulnerable young people of all ages.
