Project Summary

The Thessaly Development Center, is a certified training provider by EOPPEP, provides and supports organized learning activities aimed at adults and VETs aimed at enriching knowledge, developing and improving skills and abilities, developing a person's personality and capacity of active citizenship, and to alleviate educational and social inequalities.

In the ever-changing post-industrial society, adults go through short or long periods of unemployment, change careers several times in their professional lives, and are called upon to continually upgrade their knowledge and skills. The benefits of adult education and lifelong learning generally cover all areas of an individual's activities as they help him / her to fulfill all his / her personal, social, family, professional roles.

Recognizing the importance of training and adult education and the complex and difficult role of the trainer, our organization decided to submit a mobility plan within ERASMUS+. The purpose of the proposed project is to train 7 trainers of our organization in the Prague-based ITC training organization with extensive experience in training programs, modern methodologies, learning models and practices followed in adult education and counseling. As in our country there are no specialized seminars on the training of trainers in the field of modern adult learning methods (such as problem solving learning - PBL), the proposed project comes to complement the training of teachers and equip them with necessary tools for integrating modern teaching methods and counseling into the educational process that should be followed.

The ITC Host Partner has many years of experience (18 years) in the field of adult education and training and is a member of the Czech Science Management Committee. It is a pioneer in new innovative learning models and methodologies such as personalized learning, differentiated learning, reversed learning, problem solving learning, project based learning, game based learning, gamification etc.

With the proposed plan, our organization will acquire a highly qualified and internationally recognized adult trainer human resources (through the acquisition of ECVET) with training in problem model learning through problem solving. This will create all the necessary conditions for adult support and integration or reintegration into the labor market. The implementation of the project is mainly concerned with the attendance of a specialized and mixed project (theory, workshop) training seminar on modern methodologies and practices followed in adult education and mainly problem solving learning (PBL).
