From 23 to 26 October PRISM was hosted in Tallinn, at the Estonian EESTI VABAHARIDUSLIIT MTU headquarters for the kick-off of the “A Step forward in Wellbeing in the field of Adult Education” project.
This project aims to create educational methodologies that improve the environmental learning conditions of adults. The partner associations include:
EESTI VABAHARIDUSLIIT MTU – Estonia
ENOROS CONSULTING LIMITED – Cyprus
PROMIMPRESA SRL -Italy
FUNDACJA ROZWOJU AKTYWNOSCI MIEDZYNARODOWEJ I EDUKACYJNEJ – Poland
EUROPEAN CENTER FOR QUALITY OOD – Bulgaria
PRISM – INTERNATIONAL PROMOTION SICILY – WORLD – Italy
Specifically, the project funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus + Program has as main objective to increase the motivation of adult learners. This target group must be trained in a learning environment that allows him to implement training courses in a state of well-being (some assessments recorded at European level on adult training courses have shown that adult students often feel extremely stressed and overwhelmed by the challenges of their professional and personal life).
Starting from these needs, the project, started in December 2019 and lasting 2 years, proposes a series of activities aimed at creating a “Protocol” containing the procedures for the certification of skills (within the EQF) of trainers related to creating a stimulating learning environment for adults. The Protocol will be the basic document to be followed to validate these skills and learning environments and certify them as “Wellness Learning Environments”. Educators will be provided with new tools and training strategies to be used in a variety of adult learning contexts; making learning more accessible.
In the coming months the results of the first activities will be presented, such as the exchange of Good Practices between partner countries, and in-depth research on current legislation at national and local level.
