Six European NGOs cooperated 2009-2011 in the Grundtvig partnership project "Mentor Development Programmes: Transforming learners into educators supported by e-communication tools”.
All partner organisations use mentoring programmes as a tool to increase learner participation and sustain the impact of adult education. They exchanged national particularities of mentoring programmes as well as common all-European approaches, and identified successful core elements of the learner-educator transformation which could be transferred and implemented at home. The partners also learned about e-tools to support mentoring programmes and make them more accessible to learners with special needs. These e-tools included online learning platforms, web conferences, blogs, online survey tools etc.
The work progress was accompanied by the compilation of “mentor success stories” showcasing the learner-educator transformation in individual cases. The success stories were written by adult learners actively involved throughout the project lifetime. They will hopefully inspire more learners to become mentors and more adult education organisations to explore the full potential of mentoring programmes.
