Long name: ACE - Developing Adult Educator Competences to Promote Life Style Entrepreneurship
Project Lead: Kaunas Region Education Centre
Funding: Erasmus+


The project has been developed to solve the issues of low adult participation in life-long learning and high unemployment. The following needs are addressed within the project:

  • To develop the basic and specific adult educators’ competencies working with disadvantaged learners with focus on innovative outreach and learning
  • To provide necessary knowledge and information to adult learners with fewer opportunities and from disadvantaged background on access to learning and opportunities for employment on the basis of their lifestyle, abilities and talents.

The objectives are:

  • to strengthen the competencies of adult educators-practitioners supplying them with innovative and attractive training material and ICT tools based on the lifestyle entrepreneurship (LSE) approach
  • to enhance the professional development of adult educators by introducing the innovative education methods: blended learning, reversed/flipped training, open education recourses (OER)
  • to develop OER tailored to the needs of adult educators to support digital integration in learning to reach learners from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • to increase the motivation and reduce disparities in learning outcomes of adult learners with fewer opportunities and from disadvantaged backgrounds using the LSE approach and ICT tools with the long perspective of getting self employed.
