ASTON UNIVERSITY

Aston is the lead university located in the West Midlands. The University is committed to investing in outreach activities and ensuring progression to higher education is made possible for underrepresented groups.

The focus is on the professional development of those who teach to ensure outstanding student outcomes and to provide staff with enhanced career prospects.

In the UK we will involve the Widening Participation and Community Engagement units at the university and beyond.

The Active Community Engagement Programme (ACE) has maintained its focus on working with disadvantaged areas of the local community (some of the inner city wards adjoining the University are amongst the most deprived in the UK with a high proportion of pupils from ethnic minorities, and FE/HE participation rates well below the national average) whilst expanding the geographical spread, increasing the number of community organisations, and diversifying the range of opportunities Student Tutoring continued into in 26 local schools. ACE activities took place at 8 schools and 18 community groups. Some schools are involved in both programmes. The total number of schools supported by the Birmingham volunteering programme is 38. Students from BME backgrounds are well represented in both programmes, as are students with a disability. There are a significantly higher proportion of female students involved than male students.

LYCEE DU DIADEME – TE TARA O MAI’AO

The biggest High School in French Polynesia, With one HeadMaster, M.BEUCHOT Phillipe and 3 Assistant HeadMaster. We were 2 different High school, Taaone an Aorai, but this year 2019-2020, French State, but precisely, Vice-rector who represent Minister o Education, here in French Polynesia, decide to merge to one big high school for many reasons. So now, in our school, new school Title Lycée Diademe, Te tara o Mai’ao, there are 257 teachers to help succeed 2444 students. It’s a general and vocational High School, architecture, network and maintenance, electric maintenance, management, and marketing.

Drop out students are really one of the biggest problems in our country due to the point of view of the families towards continuing studying at schools as they generally deal with farming, fishing, and tourism. They see no future in attending a high school education. The drop-out rates are far more above the EU rates in our oceanic country. We would like to join this project, because we saw by doing Erasmus+ project, the importance of helping students to succeed in life, by learning another way, with meeting with new friends and students, immersion in life and school, and of course by travelling other countries. For most of them, then you coordinator and partners, it is the travel of life, and it makes them an open mind and better host and student. Such opportunities can present the students not to leave their school life and give up the possible brilliant life ahead of them
