A new look for Erasmus+ Learning Networks 

Learning Networks is getting a new look! This year, each thematic group will have their own event where attendees will be able to network, share best practice and find joint solutions to common problems. We are kicking off with our Widening Participation event on the 28 of June in Birmingham. Details on our other thematic events, Project Management and Implementation and Employability, will be available in due course.

#InspiringInclusion: Improved support for LGBT+ migrants

Migrants in unfamiliar countries can face numerous hurdles as they start a new life. If they also identify as LGBT+, these barriers can become more complex – creating challenges for the adult educators who are trying to support them. The IARS International Institute has worked in partnership to improve this situation by teaching adult educators about the needs of LGBT+ migrants.
