European Social Fund project no. 2014-2020.01.06.16-0047. Project manager Maire Loor. The project ended on October 30, 2019.
Within the framework of the project, the 28 partners of the Estonian Association of Non-Formal Education Association organized a total of 88 trainings in two years, with a total length of 3,039 academic hours of classroom work. The courses were attended by 1,059 adults, including 209 men and 850 women.
The trainings took place for the development of three key competences – foreign language skills, digital competencies, and social skills (personal development).
The 88 trainings that took place were as follows:
- Foreign language skills, incl. Estonian language skills of non-Estonian speaking adults – 46 trainings in the total amount of 1855 academic hours
- 26 digital competence trainings in the total amount of 720 academic hours
- 16 trainings of social skills (personal development) in the total amount of 464 academic hours.
5,500 flyers were compiled and printed and distributed to project partners. Both EVHL and the project partners distributed flyers to introduce the network and the project participants’ assessments of the trainings that took place in the project.
There were 14 training fairs and other events introducing the trainings of the training centers. Some project partners participated in the fairs together, others also invited other training providers in the area.
People who participated in the trainings shared their learning experiences to encourage and motivate other adults to learn. Such experiential counseling was provided at training fairs, on the premises of training centers, and also in places where people had come together for some other purpose (for example, in a craft circle or other hobby group).
