Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



Dear EPALE community,
I would like to inform you that we have successfully started our Erasmus+ project (ID: 2019-1-SK01-KA204-060805). The aim of the project is to improve the quality of adult education in career counseling, the development of talent and soft-skills of the unemployed, in order to find better employment and satisfaction in their lives. Moreover, this project will also help career advisors to use new tool in their consultancy.

We got an amazing experience to be invited to the EPALE Conference 2019. We gained new knowledge, information regarding the adult learning, also about how to use the platform and how we will be able to leverage it in the future.

We also got an opportunity to share our experiences with EPALE platform. As we are starting now our Erasmus Plus projects, we will be even more aware of all great features, which is offering EPALE for project implementation and dissemination.

Thank you again team EPALE, EPALE Slovakia, we really appreciate to get this opportunity.

After two years of continuous work, our Erasmus+ strategic partnership "Languages, Opening Gates to Society" (LOGS) has finished. Four organizations from  four different European countries were involved: 

  • The Finnish Folk High School, Gothenburg, Sweden (coordinator)
  • CFA Catalonia, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain (partner)
  • Jazyková škola Poprad, Czech republic (partner)
  • Tartu Folk High School, Tartu, Estonia (partner)

The objectives of projects were:

The Connected Care of Older Adults training programme - developed for formal and informal caregivers – consists of the following modules:

Module 1: Digital skills for caregivers
Module 2: Active and healthy ageing
Module 3: Assistive technologies
Module 4: Virtual communities   

For the online course a multilingual e-learning environment was implemented, in which standard e-learning course components (core content, glossaries, self-assessment tools, assignments, quizzes) and web 2.0 tools facilitating constructive learning were combined.

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. 

“Four elements”, an Erasmus K2 project is a study about the material side of four elements -earth, water, fire, air- and imagery attached to them. Project partners from six European countries are being interested in the collective common representations behind the four elements as they appear in myths, legends and tales.

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.

A new University-Industry Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on Educational Data Literacy is offered by the Learn2Analyse Consortium. The Learn to Analyze Educational Data and Improve your Blended and Online Teaching MOOC supports the development of the basic competences for Educational Data Analytics of Online and Blended teaching and learning.

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.

Koolitaja rollis olemist tuleb ette pea kõigil - tuleb juhendada kaastöötajaid, esineda ja kogemusi jagada. Erialaspetsialistid jõuavad sageli punkti, kus tekib vajadus ja soov juba ise oma teadmisi, oskusi koolitades edasi anda. Paraku ei taga suurepäraseks erialaeksprediks olemine automaatselt koolitajaoskusi. Selleks, et koolitustel ka reaalne mõju oleks ja inimesed tõepoolest uut õpiksid, on oma lähenemisviisid ja meetodid ning andragoogika teooria, mis annab koolitaja oskustele põhja.

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.

Capita and Education Technology Magazine have collaborated to produce a 45-minute webinar that considers how educational institutions and organisations can drive value from data in further education. The webinar is an ideal resource for those working in the FE sector, particularly those at colleges and education centres and those working with FE data.Capita and Education Technology Magazine have collaborated to produce a 45-minute webinar that considers how educational institutions and organisations can drive value from data in further education.
