Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



The Estonian Euroguidance Centre has the pleasure to invite teachers and the wider European Guidance Community across Europe to a WEBINAR, where our experts – Ms. Maria Tiidus and Ms. Jelizaveta Dulberg – will introduce some new cross-media tools; showcasing the latest experiences on addressing gender equality in career guidance.

At the end of the summer of 2019, the DIAL project comes to an end presenting not only the expected but also fruitful results with added value. The team has developed an active and demanded teaching platform, has organized pilot tests and actual trainings with the main target groups of the project. Furthermore, the project’s leading partner follows the example and makes first steps towards Senior University in Latvia. 

The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) invites tender submissions from experienced innovation design, digital learning and EdTech agencies to design, develop and support an online assessment tool for the ERASMUS+ Check-In-Take-Off (CITO) project. The online assessment tool will be used by members of the public to assess their literacy, numeracy and digital skills and will allow them to look at their readiness to learn and learning goals.

The HR Club of Moravian and Silesian Region from the Czech Republic ( in cooperation with Bulgarian partner Together and Portuguesse partner CooLabora developed under the Erasmus+ project the e-learning content concerning gender and equal treatment. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

How can educational paths of adult migrants be fostered? How can teachers and educators in the field of adult education cooperate and develop innovative practices?

Key-Co System is a project funded by KA2 of Erasmus+ program designed to provide a possible answer to these challenging questions, thanks to the joint action of four organizations, three adult schools and two universities coming from five different European countries - Italy, Germany, Spain, UK and Greece - that share a high presence of migrants and refugees attending local educational paths.

An Cosán VCC is currently accepting expressions of interest from learners for Certificate and Higher Certificate programmes for it to hold based on demand, and would be delighted if those working in adult learning would consider discussing this with any potential students they believe might be suitable and benefit from the course. Expressions of interest are being accepted via survey that can be found through the link here.

Are you interested in exploring opportunities for Social Enterprise in your community? 

An Cosán VCC is facilitating a series of seminars (live community conversations) exploring social enterprise entitled "Tein-Eigen the Need-Fire". These will be addressing the theme of "Online Collaboration and Opportunities for Social Enterprise in Communities".  

Participation is free of charge with the first session taking place on Tuesday 25th June 2019 which will be followed by 6 online sessions which will run on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, on the following dates: Tuesday 9th July; 13th August; 10th September; 8th October; 12th November and 10th December 2019.

At Southern Regional College (SRC), we have spent decades building on what came before and bring that experience forward to meet the challenges of the present. An international two-year partnership with several other EU countries allowed for the development of an online equality and diversity programme supporting migrant, refugee and asylum seeker communities.

Equal opportunities for social participation—the central objective of publicly-funded adult learning—are essential in the area of digitalisation, too. General adult learning can be a strong partner for improving life skills in a digitalised world. Read how the German National Strategy for Continuing Education aims to reach this target in this blog post.

The ever-increasing financialization and complexity requires financial literacy to be an integral part of the research agenda and of global policy making, in particular in the EU. SUCCEED's partnership was composed of expert educational organizations such as CONFORM (Italy), BICERO (Slovenia) and FUNIBER (Spain) and a wide range of business support organizations: a business incubator, The Hive(Italy) and many networks of enterprises such as SATEAN(Romania), Italian-Luxembourgish Chamber of Commerce (Luxembourg), RES and CBE (both from Belgium).
How can we plan a project that contributes to equal opportunities in adult education? How can we transfer this knowledge? You will learn the conditions of a transfer and you will get practical information to design and implement your transfer activities. The example of Equal Space will show you, what to look for in a transfer.
In the first quarter of this century, digital media has been consolidated as an essential part of everyday life. The digital world presumably presents many advantages and opportunities nonetheless, it also carriers risks and threats we were not used to. In the age of fake news, disinformation, algorithms, artificial intelligence, ubiquitous learning, social networks, etc. it is essential to understand the operating principles and mechanisms of the Internet and media to safely navigate the Internet environment and take informed decisions.

A large number of psychological studies claim that a person's consciousness changes while they are learning, and there are various mental processes that have an effective effect on the development of the brain and the consciousness. Learning affects mental and thought processes. Constant learning creates new neural pathways, with the brain remaining in function and not deteriorating.

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a toolkit that can be used to utilise students’ digital capabilities to support teaching, learning and assessment. Both the toolkit and a report that details the researcher’s findings can be downloaded from the ETF Excellence Gateway website.

It is a multilingual Learning Management System developed with the aim to equip learners with knowledge, abilities and skills that allow them to enter the entrepreneurial world, via Industry 4.0 and Drone Technology, in order to yield the related opportunities. It includes a course, trainer guidelines, evaluation tools and e-learning platform.

Technology Skills 2022: Ireland’s Third ICT Skills Action Plan sets out priority actions to meet Ireland’s needs for graduates skilled in computing and electronic and electrical engineering to support and drive economic performance over the coming years.

The plan is informed by research conducted by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN). The ambitious targets in the plan will increase the total number of graduates with high-level ICT skills by more than 5,000 every year by 2022. 

This is an Erasmus+ funded project which aims to design and implement effective training tools for enhancing key skills and competences of (a) highly-skilled refugees and (b) the language teachers who work with them, and so enhance the employability and societal integration of skilled refugees.
