We concluded our Welcome Meeting by organising the room distribution of all participants, by using post-it and trying to mix all nationalities (but not genders) and help inclusion of all.

New Course: “Integration and Teaching Methods with Migrants”


MAD for Europe has been teaching Training Courses of all types for several years. Some of the most important are Educational Psychology, ICT or Web Marketing.


Now, we have created a new course entitled “Integration and Teaching Methods with Migrants”, a course that provides the opportunity to discuss integration challenges in a multi-cultural group with professionals. Among its objectives, we want to develop teaching methodologies to facilitate the integration and learning of migrants’ students, provide materials to train other colleagues or students and provide tools to raise young migrants’ self-confidence. Also, one of the most important things is to teach how to identify the educational needs of foreign students.


We offer this Training Course because the migration of people is an enduring phenomenon of the human society and the process of adapting to life in a new country is not always easy, especially for refugee youngsters which will become students in a new context.


Several European studies highlight the disadvantaged position of students from a migrant background like poor marks, a high proportion of students being kept back behind their year group and early drop-out.


The target group of this course is teachers, students, professionals and stakeholders and its duration is one week. It will be a full week with ice-breakers, practices and methodologies, effective learning processes… You can sign up in our contact form


This 2019, we will have three annual sessions: in April, June and November.

The main objective of this KA1 has been to deepen the knowledge of European cultural heritage, trying to understand the differences and common origins of different EU countries, focusing on the interrelation of different traditions that made the EU one of the most heterogeneous cribs and rich of the world.


The main activities of the “MAD for Culture project gave participants the opportunity to know the importance of cultural heritage through tangible culture (such as monuments, landscapes and works of art) and intangible culture (such as folklore, traditions , language, and knowledge). Participants had the opportunity to reflect and discuss the subject and explore different cultures and backgrounds through the arts used as a tool to share and create traditions. The activities were aimed at young people for appreciate the richness of their environment and develop an awareness of local, national and international heritage.


This project has been held in Madrid, Spain and it was funded by the Spanish National Agency of the Erasmus + Program and has brought together 42 young people from 7 different countries: Spain, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Poland and France, aged between 18 and 30 years.
