December 29th, 2015 by admin

With the support of the European Union (Leonardo project), the FEDEC organises an EPE (European Pedagogical Exchanges) network that represents the first step in a large process of multilateral exchanges and teaching skills sharing.

The EPE network consists in organising, for the first time in Europe and in the world, seven vocational training modules.

Six of these modules will be centred around major technical circus disciplines, while the seventh module will deal with « Safety and rigging» matters, a principal concern for the entire profession.

Presentation

The European Federation of Professional Circus Schools (Fédération européenne des écoles de cirque professionnelles – FEDEC) was established in 1998 to build relationships between vocational circus schools with similar educational objectives. Most of the professional European schools, at Foundation and Higher Education level, are represented.

With its numerous members and partners, FEDEC is above all a wonderful network that allows schools to get to know each other better and to share their pedagogical and artistic outlook and experience. Thanks to this network, hundreds of bilateral and multilateral exchanges of students, teachers and administrators take place. The Federation gives priority to members coming from the countries members of the Council of Europe but doesn’t exclude the possibility to admit members from countries geographically located outside these territorial limits.
