The module series on intercultural education started in 2006. It was the second series of the new trainer training scheme of the Pestalozzi Programme and was planned to last until spring/summer 2007. The first module (Module A) took place in Strasbourg at the European Youth Centre of the Council of Europe and the second module (Module B) in Oslo, Norway, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Education. The five phases of the module series were coordinated by a team of facilitators – Ms Nuria Bernaus, Germany, Ms Pavlina Hadjitheodoulou Loizidou, Cyprus, Mr Hans-Peter Schmidtke, Germany - led by Mr Miguel Essomba, Spain. The coordination of the methodological approach was carried out by Mr Chris Gittins, UK, and Ms Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard in close collaboration with the Secretariat. The training units, edited by Ms Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard, are now available for interested teachers and teacher trainers to try them out, to adapt them and further develop them. The Pestalozzi Programme would appreciate feedback on the available resources, including further resources developed on the basis of the model in its online collection.
