Themes and goals of the event
This contact seminar is dedicated to participants from cultural institutions in Europe interested to submit project proposal under Adult Education sector od Erasmus+ programme. The idea of the seminar is to give European participants space for networking in the area of adults’ key competences learnt in cultural institutions, sharing the best practices, discussing ideas for new projects and preparing drafts of new mutual projects under Erasmus+ Adult Education.
The participants will deliver European network of contacts and set up at least several Erasmus+ Adult Education projects.
The European Commission works with EU Member States to support and reinforce the development of key competences and basic skills for all, from an early age and throughout life. Key competences include knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed by all for personal fulfilment and development, employability, social inclusion and active citizenship.
The approach is to promote key competences by:
- Providing high-quality education, training and lifelong learning for all
- Supporting educational staff in implementing competence-based teaching and learning approaches
- Encouraging a variety of learning approaches and contexts for continued learning
- Exploring approaches to assess and validate key competences
To achieve these aims there will be organised plenary sessions with experts contribution and small working groups gathering participants willing to elaborate together a project. NA will support participants throughout the whole seminar.
