In terms of concrete objectives, the project will establish 4 Community Centres for Lifelong Learning in the West region of Romania, will develop several educational services and programme that will contribute to the economic and social development of the communities. Basic skills learning will be a major component in the centre’s provision, together with vocational training, counselling and guidance and other non-formal learning activities.
