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.
