The centre implemented weekly Successful Educational Activities (SEAs) (Dialogic Literary Gatherings, Extension of Learning Time, Family Training, Dialogic Training of Teachers, Participation of the Community, and Interactive Groups) in maths, literature, physics, chemistry, economics, history and geography. The direct beneficiaries were about 550 students.

Impact and successes

  • Decrease of the drop-out rates.
  • Improved academic performance, resulting in reduced repetition rates.
  • Reducing recidivism of negative behaviours.
  • Reduction of absenteeism.
  • Enrolment growth.

Lessons, learning and recommendations

The systematic and frequent application of SEAs has been the key to the overall improvement of pupils, specifically in the integration of vulnerable pupils, including migrants and refugees. Engaging migrant and refugee families, however, remains a challenge.
