The project AMICI, “Autobiographical Method for Migrants’ and Minorities’ Inclusion in Communities they are living In”, Erasmus Plus Project – Adult Education, has the main goal to contribute to facilitate a bigger participation of low skilled adults coming from migrants and ethnic minorities groups in education/training programmes, in order to increase their chances on inclusion in society and on the labour market.
Specific objectives are:
enhancing the professional development of 120 adult educators working with low skilled/qualified migrants and minorities from the 5 partner countries – by equipping them with important knowledge, improved abilities and offering them a complex and flexible training kit for using autobiography in adults’ education;
developing and testing new, innovative and flexible (easy to adapt) training materials based on autobiographical method;
fostering international dimension of low-skilled/qualified adults’ education by developing training materials that use the expertize of 5 countries
The project is developed by a partnership involving 5 organizations covering the whole Europe (from North – Sweden – to South – Italy and from West – UK to East – Romania) with different backgrounds, expertise and approaches of adult education issues, particularly of tailoring learning opportunities to the needs of individual low-skilled/low-qualified adults:

Italy – Storie di Mondi Possibili
Bulgaria – Balkanska Agenciya za Ustoychivo Razvitie
Sweden – Pro IFALL AB
United Kingdom – DACORUM COUNCIL FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE LTD
The project will develop the following intellectual outputs:
1: Training kit for adult educators “Autobiographical Method for Migrants’ and Minorities’ Inclusion in Communities they are living In” – in English and each partner’s language.
2: A set of 20 case studies (4 from each partner) related to best practices/successful stories in using autobiography in adults’ education.
3: An on-line resource center that will include all training materials and other results of the project.
4: Comparative study on how the autobiographical method worked on 10 different target groups (1 group of migrants and 1 of ethnic minorities from each partner country) – with recommendation and “tips&tricks” for future users.
5: The documentary movie “It’s my life” about 20 low-skilled/qualified adults regarding their experience on telling their story through the methods of the project.
