E2Cs through Europe
Get to know better what means “Second Chance School” by watching this short movie.
In December 1995, the “Second Chance School” project was presented at the Madrid Summit of Heads of State. It was approved by all the Education ministers of the EU member states. A first step in favour of young people thanks to Edith Cresson who was at that time European Commissioner for Science, Research and Development and former Prime Minister, acting particularly on behalf of Education, Training and Research. A project that stems from the principles contained in the White Paper Teaching and Learning – Towards the Learning Society.
The European Association of Second Chance Schools was officially created in Heerlen in the Netherlands in 1998. The aim was to create a network in which good practices and experiences are shared between members. It also aimed to support partners in setting up new Second Chance Schools. Finally, in a more general way, E2C Europe wanted to promote second chance education throughout Europe.
