Open It Up
Boostingadult educator competences to upskill pathways of adult learners
Description of the project
This 30-month Erasmus+ project aims to expand and develop educators’ skills in the field of effective teaching of literacy, digital and entrepreneurial skills to adults belonging to vulnerable groups (immigrants and newcomers, poorly educated or low-skilled adults, etc.) through the use of new technologies.
The project is complementary to a previous initiative, “Open the door to Europe” – www.opendoortoeurope.eu- – which ended in 2016, as it aims to broaden and deepen both language skills (BI-B2 levels) and entrepreneurship skills, taking it one step further and providing adult learners with the skills to turn their ideas into companies.
That both educators and adult learners acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be autonomous and create their own business, a very challenging goal that seems almost unattainable without basic skills such as literacy and – in the current era of global digitalisation – digital competencies and some notions of entrepreneurship.
