Empowerment of migrant women through Literacy and Language Learning

EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education
Duration: October 2017 – September 2019


Low-educated migrant women are one of the most disadvantaged groups in the EU in terms of labour participation and social
inclusion and go through greater challenges in achieving linguistic integration to the new environment. They are so-called LESLLA
(Low-Educated adult Second Language and Literacy Acquisition) learners, consisting of those who lack the ability to read and write
in the script of their mother tongue (L1) or whose ability is below average primary school level.

The aim of ELLE project is to apply innovative adult learning methods for the improvement of foreign language proficiency of low
skilled migrant, refugee and asylum seeker women who have not acquired study skills, empowering them for their social and labour
integration and active participation in society.

To do so, adult education experts and providers and organization supporting migrant from 5 countries (France, Germany, Ireland,
Spain and Sweden) will work together to lead the project and co-create and test innovative methods and freely accessible OER,
including a Training Guide (IO1) an Online Platform of OER (IO2) and Guidelines and recommendations (IO3) on Empowerment of
migrant women through Literacy and Language Learning.
