EPA to co-organize the final conference of PASS in November 2012 on the subject of parents as primary educators.

On Eastermonday EPA-President Johannes Theiner joined a coordinating meeting with the project team of PASS (Parents As Succseeful TeacherS). The meeting takes place in Mataró, a village close to Barcelona.

EPA is partner in the project that develops material for parents to teach their children a second language at early age. The basic idea of the project is absolutely in line with EPA`s core paradigm that Parents are the Primary Educators of their children. Therefore EPA will co-organise and host the final conference of PASS to be held in Vienna on November 16/17, 2012.

The project partners exchanged their view on the material developed for “Phase 0” and the experience and feedback from its practical application. The concept for the “Phase 1”-material was discussed and refined. Some general decisions were taken regarding the final conference in Vienna. The conference is going to address parents, practitioners, experts and policy makers.
