Radio ECCA is a private, non-profit, educational institution offering distance education to adults. It was founded in the Canary Islands in 1965 developing an original concept which turned out to be a novel and exemplary method for a radio school. ECCA goal was to raise the educational level of adults and overcome illiteracy in the islands and therefore, at the beginning, the target group was poor and socially disadvantaged people. Thousands of men and women learnt to read and write and felt encouraged to go on with more complex studies, such as, foreign languages, accounts, etc. Since then, 2.5 millions of people have been educated in various subjects and levels, in Canary Islands, Spanish mainland and Africa.
During our visit to ECCA headquarters, we assisted with a simulated recording of a class and visited several departments (layout, printing, etc). After this we participated in a live interview with one representative from each orgnisation in MI&PE project.
