Accelerated learning programme


An education or training programme that progresses the learning of trainees/students at a faster rate than usual.

example of use

Most accelerated learning programmes (ALP) are 'catch up' initiatives to assist older children/ youth, who have missed years of schooling, to complete their basic education and to obtain educational qualifications in a relatively short period of time. For example, an ALP can be a three-year programme that condenses six years of primary schooling (IIEP-UNESCO, 2010: 215)., Accelerated learning programmes can help provide a second chance to children and adolescents, provided government and employers recognize such programmes as legitimate for school and work. The Jóvenes programmes in Latin America are one example (UNESCO, 2010: 12).
