Transitions for All Into School
WHAT IS TRAINS PROJECT?
TRAINS stands for Transitions for All Into School and is fully funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and is being conducted by a team of researchers, practitioners and educators from several institutions across Europe. Leeds Beckett University (United Kingdom) are leading this project in collaboration with NARHU – National Association of Professionals Working with Disabled People (Bulgaria), the Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Families (Germany), and the Institute of Child Education and Psychology, Europe (Ireland).
THE RATIONALE FOR TRAINS
School starting ages and experiences vary across Europe. The transition to full time compulsory schooling is a significant event for young children and their families, and has been shown to be linked to later school outcomes. Thankfully, in many cases, the experience of transition to school can be very supportive for children and their families, thus setting them up for future academic and social success.
