Transnational knowledge exchange between trainers
The objective of EUpTrain is to create a transnational network between Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, Greece and Romania in order to share Europe-wide knowledge between organisations specialised in adult education through exchange of experts and the development of a sustainable handbook comprising transnational good practices and methods for trainers working with low-skilled adults. The target group of this project are trainers of low-skilled adults, with at least 2 years of working experience (certified language trainers AND a) trainers in adult education OR b) trainers in cultural integration and orientation OR c) trainers for basic skills).
The results of EUpTrain will be a handbook (translated into 8 languages) containing the results of knowledge-exchange activities, specifically a collection of concrete examples of international best practice examples and methodologies for trainers working with low-skilled adults. This varied collection of best practices and methodologies is making the project results valuable for other European countries as well. The handbook will be accessible online and free of charge for all partners and other organisations. Through the dissemination of the handbook, trainers who work with low-skilled adults in all of Europe who are not participating in this project, will also benefit from the project results and will be able to increase their knowledge and expertise. Additionally, the creation of a transnational network between the partner organisations will ensure the sustainability of the project results. The overall aim of the project is to promote networking and synergy-creation on European level and to increase the knowledge exchange and the collaboration of trainers working with low-skilled adults and of organisations in the field of adult education in Europe.
