The aim of this project was to spread new knowledge and develop new competences within the network of adult educators, those who plan and manage educational activities and those who directly bestow the knowledge to others. The main target group of the project was those professionals who implement adult education programmes and develop or participate in infrastructural activities in adult education.
The project is based on the objectives of the Human Resources Development Operational Programme 2007–2013, where the development priority Human Resources Development and Lifelong Learning highlights the importance of improved training of teachers and other educators to reach the objectives in this field. Teachers and other educators are an important factor in provision of lifelong learning, which is why the quality and systematic training of teachers and other educators is one of the key foundations for provision and raising of skills of individuals for work and life in modern society.
The project included six coherent wholes or sub-projects:
- Trainings for andragogical work;
- Training for development of literacy;
- Training for implementation of the PLYA programme;
- Training for operation of the AEGC guidance centres;
