project duration PRIDE3: 1 Oct 2019 – 30 Sept 2021. The project is supported by the EU Erasmus+ programme and is an adult education (KA2) staff mobility partnership.

Participants are drawn from a UK consortium of partners from (mainly) Northern England and Scotland like WICAT, National Trust, Natural England, Yorkshire Dales NP, Earth Doctors, VAR Initiative,  Sublime Foundation,  The Environment Partnership, Forestry Commission, Eden Arts, Epiacum Heritage, Solway AONB and Woolclip.

The placements are fully funded apart from getting to the UK departure point (which might not be the nearest airport to you).

All the places revolve around dedicated training courses from the ‘Green Village’ suite of certified units. They were created over a 3-year period by 8 EU partners led by Grampus Heritage. All the courses carry ECVET points as well as certification for CPD. The Green Village curriculum is called “Sustainable Rural Development – Focus on Culture and Nature” and the course modules are available to download on the right hand side of this page.

Although the majority of the PRIDE projects are designed to allow mobility to learn, we have a number of “Teaching Assignments” (TA’s), where adult education staff and lecturers travel to PRIDE partners to teach. The assignments are invariably practical rather than academic.

Over the last three years, they have included a team traveling to Oulu in Finland to teach about art within the community and sustainable development, archaeological surveyors traveling to Iceland to train colleagues in geophysical survey and osteo archaeologist attending in Romania to help colleagues there get to grips with their immense and important collection of Neolithic skeletons.

On the 23rd of February 2020, a team will attend in Turkey and teach at three venues, Sultanhisar Governorship training centre, Pamukkale University Teacher Training class and Buldan fashion school. The 8-strong team includes applied artists who will show how art in public spaces can give strong social and environmental messages; one of those traveling, Serhat Selışık first worked with Grampus on an important Adult Education project in Cumbria (home of Grampus), to create a flock of birds taking flight and representing the varied ethnic and religious groups of Europe in “HUMEN”- “How to Understand My European Neighbour”. Amonngst the group will also by Zora Kizilyurek, a law graduate from London who will investigate the role of women in modern-day Turkey; Oggy Yordanov will teach media and film and others will teach how to organise photoshoots and fashion shows.
