The educational inclusion of sub-Saharan adult immigrants: the point of view of diaspora communities

The reception and inclusion of immigrants is a process in which educational inclusion is still a problematic node, which needs to be investigated, in order to understand what the obstacles are to access to lifelong learning and what are the necessary interventions to encourage participation. The paper presents the analysis of data from a research on the inclusion of sub-Saharan adult immigrants. Five focus groups were held with the communities of the diaspora on the theme of inclusion paths, with particular attention to the educational inclusion of adults. The results reveal interesting indications on the recognition of previous learning and on the personalization of education and training courses.
