Abstract

“Getting a grip on basic skills” is a project, which aimed to develop and pilot an inservice teacher training model for promoting the skills of LESLLA (Literacy Education and Second Language Learning for Adults) teachers in supporting the development of basic skills of immigrant adults. In this article, we will describe the project, planned and implemented in Finland, discuss observations and implications of the pilot, and give some examples of the good practices developed and observed during the project. Additionally, we will contemplate the challenges of the longterm web-based training model and the teachers’ everyday work.
