Institute for Productive Learning in Europe (IPLE)

Institute of the Alice-Salomon-Hochschule Berlin (ASH Berlin). IPLE is an institute for school development and teacher training; the quality management refers to the quality standards of the ASH Berlin. The staff consists of 15 people with different qualifications: teachers, specialists in the field of educational science, professional educators, experts in the humanities and social sciences, psychologist, interpreter, accountant and secretary.

The main activities of IPLE are: project development and monitoring, conceptual and curricular development, monitoring for schools, teachers and independent educational institutions, training for teachers and multipliers, international networking, congresses and seminars, evaluation of projects.

Over the past 20 years the IPLE has been developing concepts for school education and for education outside of school, which have the following objectives: the individualisation of learning processes, that learning is taking place within real-life situations, and connecting practical experiences with the learning in school. All concepts are piloted, evaluated and further developed in collaboration with the partners (ministries, providers, schools, municipalities and districts, educational projects outside of school).
IPLE has implemented Productive Learning in different German regions and different educational fields (general education, non-formal education, first pilot project in VET). IPLE supported the implementation of Productive Learning in the general education system in Finland, Lithuania and the Netherlands, the development of eight Productive Learning modules in France, Hungary, Portugal, Russia and Spain and the implementation of principles of PL in three Russian vocational schools.

The main Partners of IPLE are (selection of actual partners): Ministry of education and school administration in Berlin and Saxonia, Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin (University of Applied Sciences), 84 secondary schools all over Germany and secondary schools in Finland, in the Netherlands and in Lithuania, offering Productive Learning, Chambers of Commerce and Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Berlin and Saxonia, 50 partners at INEPS (International Network of Productive Learning Projects and Schools) from 15 European countries and the USA, e.g. the Education Supply Center of the Ministry of Education in Lithuania and Protasi in Greece.

IPLE founded the INEPS in 1991. INEPS is a non-profit and voluntary organisation. The internal structure consists of the General Assembly (GA) and the Administration Council (AC). The AC is elected by the GA for two years and consists of 5 to 7 members. Since the foundation of INEPS at least one staff member of IPLE is part of the AC of INEPS. The main aim is to develop, to make known and to disseminate Productive Learning in Europe. The main activities of INEPS are: yearly congresses (2014 in Berlin) and international seminars for members working in the field of education, Youth congresses, Youth exchanges, shared EU-projects and the dissemination of Productive Learning.
