New Eurydice Reports
Below are short summaries and links to two new reports made by Eurydice. Eurydice is a network whose task is to explain how education systems are organised in Europe and how they work, and is co-funded under the Erasmus+ programme.
The Structure of the European Education Systems 2016/17
This report examines the structure of mainstream education in European countries from pre-primary to tertiary levels for the 2016-2017 school and academic year. Forty-three education systems are included covering 38 countries participating in the EU’s Erasmus+ programme (28 Member States, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey). In the first part of the report, the main organisational models of pre-primary and compulsory education is investigated. The latter part provides a guide on how to read the diagrams in the report. The third and final section provides the national schematic diagrams.
Compulsory Education in Europe 2016/17
The publication focuses on the duration of compulsory education and/or training in Europe. Furthermore, it highlights the starting and leaving ages as well as distinguishes the notions of full-time and part-time compulsory education and/or training. The information in this publication is available for 43 European education systems that cover 38 countries participating in the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.
In recent times migration and integration are huge topics in Europe. Schools play an important role in the successful integration of migrations. The Conference in Bonn, organised by Pedagogical Exchange Service (PAD), aims to collect experiences and results from international school exchange programmes and facilitate their exploitation to support the integration of young refugees. Multiple issues will be addressed, such as: intercultural school development and pedagogical concepts for school diversity and language learning in the context of multilingualism.

EuroClio has started its new project “Strategies for Inclusion – Making high quality history and citizenship education more inclusive and accessible,” funded by the Erasmus+ Key Actions 2. The project will contribute to making the teaching and learning of history and citizenship at schools more inclusive and accessible for learners with special educational needs and disabilities. It will enhance equity, diversity, and inclusion of educational systems overall, while strengthening the profile of teaching professions and the quality through mobility and cross-border cooperation. The project will last for a total of 36 months, finishing September 2018.
The first project management meeting will take place in the Netherlands on November 27-29, where the project partners will gather for the planning of the project for the next coming period.
A call for special interest groups will be coming soon.
EuroClio will work with Armenian – CIVITAS (Armenia), Agrupamento de Escolas Coimbra Centro (Portugal), Zavod za gluhe in ngalusne Ljubliana (Slovenia), Zakladni skola a Materska skola Deblin okres Brno-venkov, prispevkova organizace (Czech Republic), Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet (Norway), and Stichting Hogeschool Van Amsterdam (the Netherlands) to produce tailored educational resources, build the capacity of educators, build more awareness of the importance of inclusive and citizenship education, and create a transferable model on the implementation of strategies for inclusion that can be adapted for use in other subjects as well. While the project addresses all learners, it will concentrate on learners with visual and hearing impairments and learners with behavioural and motivation difficulties in particular.
