The Challenge of Tutoring is a two year, European Leonardo da Vinci partnership which focuses on the field of Tutoring.
Coordinated by GIP Formation tout au long de la Vie (France), this partnership is composed of 7 organisations from different countries: ARCES University College (Italy), CCOO Comisiones Obreras (Spain), CKU (Poland), GIP FTLV (France), KNEIP (Luxembourg), OTD (Norway), and Uludag University – Vocational School of Social Sciences (Turkey).
The aim of the workgroup is to share best practices, and analyse their experiences in the field of tutoring, while producing a charter that can be used across various structures(schools, companies, training institutions, social associations, etc.).
The Charter was finalised in June of 2011, and establishes some common benchmarks and a joint methodology for promoting a European Framework of Tutor(ship).
The main purpose of this document is to inspire people and institutions both at a national and at an international level to the relevance of the tutoring in the educational framework and, more in general, in the lifelong learning opportunities. The Charter is composed of 3 documents: the Charter, the results of the workshops and the testimonials specific to each partners national context/organisation. Join the LinkedIn group “The Challenge of Tutoring” to participate in discussions.
