What we do
The overall goal of the project is to empower the adult educators with an integrated & innovative iPath2UpSkilling Platform & Programme & with the specific skills for using it in order to assure high quality upskilling pathways for the low-skilled/-qualified adults through guidance services, formal & non-formal education, training & coaching services.
Tailored Upskilling Pathway
The project connects 4 online trainings on transversal competencies and other competencies not taught in schools with the certified qualifications awarded. This approach grants a successful tailored Upskilling Pathway for those in need and valuable resources and working tools for adult educators and trainers.
Designing and developing the iPath2UpSkilling Platform
The IO1’s aim is the development during 2-30th month of a functional &operational iPath2UpSkilling Platform to be used by adult educators as a digital mean to support an Upskilling Pathway for low-skilled/-qualified adults. Designing & developing the iPath2UpSkilling Platform is the project’s 1st stage, interconnecting the both end-users’ needs (adult trainers & low-skilled/-qualified adults) with the technical requirements.
Guidelines development for end-users of the iPath2UpSkilling Platform
IO2 will start in parallel with the IO3 due to their interconnection. The aim of IO2 is to create guidelines for end-users of the iPath2UpSkilling Platform during 4 to 28th month. No matter how wonderful the Platform develop under IO1 is and how intelligent its design, if the project team is the only one who understands it, it doesn’t do any good for the target group.
Development of the iPath2UpSkilling Platform’s resources and content
The IO3 impacted direct target group will be the 15 persons (educators, trainers & other personnel who support adult learners) from external organisations (C2 participants) together with the 10 C1’s participants selected from partners’ organisations with a similar profile, but the entire category of educators, trainers & other personnel who support adult learners form participating countries will benefit of IO3 after disseminations activities will take place.
