  • To develop new learning materials to raise the level of literacy;
  • To expand implementation of approaches for assessment and recognition of non-formal knowledge and experiences of adults to all adult education networks;
  • To develop new tools and approaches for assessment and recognition of non-formal knowledge and experiences of adults; and

DESCRIPTION

The project is divided into two activities that are further divided into individual tasks but represent a coherent whole aimed at specific project objectives. The first activity, Development of adult literacy 2011–2014, was aimed at development of methodology and preparation of descriptors of basic skills and key competences. The aim of the second activity, Assessment and recognition of non-formal learning in adults 2012–2014, was further development and implementation of models and tools for assessment and recognition of non-formal and informal knowledge and experiences of adults.

The project was implemented in the scope of the Human Resources Development Operational Programme 2007–2013, the development priority Human Resources Development and Lifelong Learning and the priority orientation Quality and Efficiency Improvement of Educational and Training Systems.

The development priority Human Resources Development and Lifelong Learning underlined the fact that human resource development in modern society is not based only on formal but also on other non-formal types and forms of learning and education. As such, the project paid much attention to creation of new opportunities for inclusion of different groups of adults (especially those who are deprived of inclusion into lifelong learning) into non-formal learning to acquire key competences for inclusion into further education or learning, for successful participation in the job market and for better social inclusion.

The elements of lifelong learning were strengthened by further development and implementation of processes for assessment and recognition of knowledge acquired through non-formal and informal learning in the field of adult education, which opens up new opportunities for further education and training of adults and new opportunities in the job market.
