Page 34: Malmo presentation english2


Continuous incorporation of new students. Lack of tutorial attention before entering

the group Teachers’ disparity on the interpretation of

the welcome criteria Group instability due to the student changes Irregular attendance and high level of drop

outs Not enough amount of teaching hours for

the lowest levels The Centre doesn’t have a Coaching

Department Group diversity to be monitored by each

teacher. Difficulties when coordinating


Teachers’ positive and open attitude towards the diversity of nationalities and cultures

Teachers’ experience on adult education Flexible offer, adapted to the student needs

and interests. Variety of levels and timetables.

The Centre has appropriate facilities and technological resources.

Good atmosphere at school. New teachers are supported by the rest of staff and management.

Library with book loan and Internet service for students.

Teaching staff satisfaction for the work done and the degree of achievement of the foreseen objectives.


Page 35: Malmo presentation english2


Lack of contact with other similar schools in the country. Ignorance of other experiences.

Lack of coordination with other centres of support and social and training centres for immigrants in the same area.

Insecurity as we ignore the Administration Plans on the adult education.

Non-satisfactory answer to the teachers’ demands for continuous training.

Economic crisis: threaten the continuity of part of the student.

Not enough teaching staff. Inhibition of the Administration to improve

the centre. There is no coach among the school staff


The possibility to use the Spanish Virtual Classroom within the courses.

Be the reference centre for adult education in the area and being known by all the institutions.

The need that foreign people have to learn Spanish is a great motivation to attend the courses.

The Administration allows anybody to study the courses, without taking into account their legal situation.

Citizens from the countries newly integrated into the EU increase the demand of Spanish to keep on studying and to improve their qualifications.

Be a zone reference centre allows us to have courses in other places and bring the lessons closer to the participant’s home.

The big development of the ICTs. High rates of unemployment produce an

increase in the training demand.
