high The project focuses on building/developing partnerships between European organizations working in the field of adult education and on exchanging and sharing lifelong learning best practice.
The overall objective of this project is to support migrants and refugees (with basic knowledge of the language of their host country) to enter in an entrepreneurship pathway, using tools prepared according to their needs: using simple language and images in a clear, rigorous and practical way.
f The Healthy Food Choices for a Sustainable Future (Healthy Future) project main aim is to help people to reduce the carbonic footprint coming from food to prevent and reduce climate changes.
To achieve this target we need healthy food choices, to support vegetable enhanced diets and to train cooks using special modules called badges.
The project promote also networking between vocational schools and Hotels, Restaurants and Catering industry in different European countries.
sd In itinere Project aims to raise awareness about the dangers of commuting traveling. Commuting is home to work or home to school trip. More than one million people die all over the world in working time! Street accidents are the first cause of death for young people. We will produce some clips for young people and workers.
ff The project focuses on how the vocational school students choose their fields and how satisfied they are with their choice, what factors influence the choice of the students who have not been satisfied with it and what kind of rehabilitation studies can be done for them.
drw This project intends to be the collaborative effort of various experts in Adult Language Learning (ALL) across Europe in order to improve their teaching and learning practices.  ALL is an area that has not been researched as much as other areas in language learning have, namely, language acquisition and foreign language teaching to young learners.  Adult learners make up a special group of students, and teaching them should be a pleasurable and constructive experience.
The Grundtvig partnership LISTEN (LEARNING INNOVATING STYLES & ACTIVE CITIZENS) is focusing on teaching and learning methods. It will provide teachers, trainers and learners with the opportunity to exchange experiences, practices and information regarding teaching and learning methods, to develop together new approaches which meet needs, to test and put into practice new pedagogical methods. We will start from performing a needs analysis to identify different teaching and learning methods.
The next step will be designing and adapting specific tools for Adult Education (based on the need analysis).

The project develops an active training methodology aimed at increasing the civic and social skills of young adults. The results will help to face the unemployment crisis, using a kit of different training tools.
The purpose of the project is to develop guidelines for the implementation of blended learning environments in which information and communication technologies (ICTs) are used to enhance students’ learning environments. In particular, the project will seek to identify common factors across school levels and European contexts that promote:
- effective use of information technologies to support students’ learning,
- student-driven learning environments,
- and student collaboration for project-based learning.
The project builds on the “flipped learning” approach (Bermann & Sams, 2012). This approach involves the strategic use of ICTs to create blended learning environments that encourage students’ use of ICTs for learning while maximizing the time instructors have to engage learners in meaningful learning activities in the classroom.
Quality assurance is an important aspect of adult education and is today a major topic on the European policy agenda. This partnership would like to explore the possibilities of further development of the European Quality Mark (EQM), a product that was developed through two Leonardo da Vinci projects; ALL and RECALL. The products of the EQM have received positive feedback from non-formal learning providers in partner countries and there is a need to explore the possibility of further dissemination and sustainability. The main question in focus will be:
"How can the European Quality Mark support national quality in non-formal learning and through what type of central cooperation?"
Through the European Quality Mark becoming a European tool operated and developed further through common efforts of an European partnership we will have a European benchmark for quality in lifelong learning.

The project "WAKE UP THE GIANT IN YOURSELF-INNOVATIVE METHODS OF EXTENDING OCCUPATIONAL ACTIVITY" AMONG WORKERS AGED 50 AND MORE is implemented in cooperation with the Polish coordinator Europerspektywa. The Project aims to produce an effective methodology of improving occupational activity prospects among professionally-active persons aged 50 and more in the Lublin region. The tools used are planned to include information and communications technologies, professional (vocational) trainings, personal coaching techniques and the issues of health and physical fitness (swimming pool, aqua aerobics, fitness, gym). Free medical packages will be provided too. Moreover, the tools will employ good Italian and Polish practices and will represent a comprehensive approach to elderly workers. Finally, the methodology gained will end with recommendations for decision makers to implement it to the mainstream. The project related web site is: www.olbrzym.info

The purpose of the partnership is to build a consortium of experts that will share their knowledge and expertise about informal adult learning in various EU countries. The experts will provide background information about their countries' policies and resources on informal learning. The emphasis will be on opportunities for informal learning in various subjects that are provided to the public (adults) through informal learning contexts such as long-distance courses, internet courses, environmental parks, natural history museums, science centers, galleries, nature trails and others. Teachers, museum staff, explainers, curators, parents, and researchers in different EU countries have different knowledge and experiences, so in order to achieve an impact on knowledge and understandings of informal learning and to bridge the gap between formal and informal learning opportunities for adults, a European rather than a national or local approach is needed. The target groups of the project are adults of any background with interest in informal learning, such as museum staff, science communicators, curators, teachers, artists, and the general public.
The aim of the project is to promote the higher level of the participation of the older people in the working process and to help them keep in employment. The project will establish a trans-national network to encourage participation of the older people in education with the special focus on their special needs, with the following specific objectives: to transfer knowledge, methods and good practices for senior citizen education; to transfer experiences about the learning needs of senior citizens and strategies on how these needs can be met; to exchange experiences in developing strategies and methods for teachers, trainers and other adult education staff who work with senior citizens; to identify effective models on how to make use of the potential of senior citizens by contributing to the learning of others; to raise awareness on the senior citizens in the workplace as a concept focusing on increasing the employment and position of this disadvantaged group in the labour market; to promote in companies and society positive context of diversity meaning workplace that respects and includes a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees; to share knowledge and experiences at a regional level and promote the development of new approaches in the field of training of older people.
Promoting and supporting entrepreneurship and SMEs is a political priority in all European member states. However, the training and support European entrepreneurs usually get is mainly focused on initial aid during their first steps into entrepreneurship. Despite the initial support founders of new businesses get at the beginning, many of them do not survive their third year of business operations. This is due to the fact that no structured and holistic support is provided to still young but already established SMEs whose businesses develop successfully and would have the potential of growth, but whose owners are not sufficiently capable of managing this sudden growth and the problems and challenges it brings about. This is especially the case for enterprises in the crafts as well as in the services sector.
The project will develop a quality assurance system for lifelong learning providers and establish the results as a set of applicable choices for providers seeking to improve the quality of their provision and promote themselves as an accredited provider. The project will collect quality directed initiatives in VET in Europe and use the results to disseminate a commonly recognised quality mark for lifelong learning providers. Furthermore it aims to develop a commercially sustainable procedure for managing and awarding the quality mark and develop a cross sectoral network of service providers.
