This is an Authentic Inquiry training programme available for European practitioners working with disengaged young people and/or young offenders to use in their own settings.
The Authentic Inquiry is an innovative educational methodology that aims to connect the personal, authentic interest and experience of the learner with formal education. This is done through an 8-step process that takes the learners’ interest through their own narratives and stories (personal) and navigates it towards the production of an ‘artefact’ such as a piece of art, poster or other product that has some external educational value (public). In so doing, a connection between the personal and the public is developed.
