Training programmes

7 June 2007

We elaborated and applied a pedagogical programme to teach learning strategies to students in adult continuing education in Valencia along an academic year. We succeeded in improving significantly the learning strategies of these students. We also succeeded in improving significantly the marks of them in two important subjects, Spanish and Maths. So we obtained generalization and transference of results. We think that these results are important and that they prove the efficiency of the methods of the educational intervention which we used. This intervention is placed in the field of learning to learn.

We elaborated and applied a training programme to prevent and treat the students absenteeism in the school children in Primary Level in a middle-sized city in Spain. We succeeded in increasing the presence of the students with absences in the school and also in improving their self-esteem. This programme was conducted by the investigators and was developed by a well-coordinated team: the headship, the teachers, the pedagogue, the social worker and so on.


Key words: Students absenteeism, Training programmes, Self-esteem.
