APECV Project TEAM : Angela Saldanha; Célia Ferreira; Teresa Torres de Eça; Isabel Trindade APECV Facilitators: (Group who will receive training in October 2018, Catania)
I am a Portuguese educational psychologist. I’ve been working in the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community (through different self-empowerment and art). I’m deeply interested in self-directed learning and I’ve been working with children in school and non formal learning environments that promote it.
More about me? …
I dream about someday I’ll live in a place I can move to my work on bike. I like rainy and gray days, I like walking barefoot, I like reading words, I like to hear someone singing well,

With a degree in Criminology and a master in International Relations, i have work experience in the legal area in the field of prevention and harm reduction of drug use in youth. I also have experience in the employment area, working with public employment measures in Portugal and in a center of professional learning. I’ve done various volunteering work in challenging communities. I also have worked in intervention with adolescents and young adults in impoverish communities in social neighborhoods in Oporto. My skills for this project are the ability to share active job search techniques as well as make personal plans of appropriate training to vulnerable groups according to their needs. I also have personal skills in creative writing and theater.
Concerning to the general objective of conducting sessions with adult learners, taking lifelong learning as a guideline, I added the skills that can be an asset to this project as a trainer of it, namely in the context of employment policies in force as well as the transmission of knowledge of job search techniques and cultural / social forum activities with students with regard to personal presentations in the field of employment.
At the age of 12 i began my music education through the learning of guitar, where i began my first chords and took guitar lessons with Sandro Norton, who was very important in my learning in guitar and music in gerneral. During my academic education i was in the Conservatory of Music Óscar da Silva where i learn classical guitar and in ACE – Academia Contemporânea do Espetáculo where i learn the first steps of theater in the area of sound and light design, making, during the course, solo projects in these areas. My first experience with people with special needs was in ALADI at Lavra, Matosinhos, where I spent my summer vacation collecting recycled objects and building musical instruments, in which we made a brief presentation with the users of the institution. I began my career in higher education in the area of Light and Sound Design for shows, and integrated several theater, music and performance projects as a light and sound technician all over Europe. For this Project i can make activities in the field of sound and light taking advantage of the place where i make the teaching activity, culminating in a presentation for the community and family of the adult learners.
I believe that I can be an asset in the scope of activities of the artistic field that can be the basis of workshops with adult learners, concretely in the area of community theater, light and sound. In light and sound design, and with my previous experience with adults with challenging life paths as well as few opportunities for lifelong learning, I also believe that my music skills can benefit this project, on several occasions, as a different method of teaching.
