- The use of MENTORING (personal guidance, coaching) can make Life Long Learning, Active Citizenship, Social Inclusion, and Personal Development a reality also for migrant children and other disadvantaged groups.
Combined with pedagocial methodology that takes the needs of the migrant child into consideration, and combined with a dedicated training of student mentors, there is room for great improvement in everyday life in local schools. This is the conclusion of an external evaluation of the Swedish Nightingale Project.
- The Nightingale mentoring model recruit children with immigrant background years 8-12. The aim of the Nightingale model is to give the child a positive role model through a personal relationship and thereby strenghten the child’s confidence in its own potentials and abilities. For the student this relationship offers a unique understanding of social and ethnic diversity. Nigthingale also offers an interesting insight into collaboration of complentary institutions like schools, teacher training, educational authorities, NGOs etc. and should be well designed to be adapted to other European countries if properly introduced.
- The aim of the project is to implement central elements of the Nightingale model in seven Eruopean countries and to disseminate best practice to a wider audience through courses and workshops.
