Background

Although the Lifelong Learning principles are approved and even attempted to follow in many European countries, the practical implementation is sometimes hard to distinguish. The heads of the educational establishments often admit that although they are aware of and principally agree with the Lifelong Learning (LLL) principles, the real implementation of the latter both in the organizations and through their services is hardly notable. Several studies and projects, carried out in recent years, indicate the existence of immediate need to identify and solve practical managerial problems related to implementation of the LLL principles in educational establishments.

An Estionian - Flemish project on raising quality of management of educational institutions of Estonia resulted in some clear actionpoints and needs regarding this issue. A need for further training and international experience were expressed. A EU project proposal was prepared and eventually excepted.

 

Project aims

The objective of the project is to develop a training course “Implementation of Life-Long Learning Management through different Educational Level Establishments” for managerial staff of educational establishments. The course, developed jointly by project partners, will combine the expertise, diverse practical experience of the various partner-institutions. The project uses also the results of Grundtvig 2 project MALLE, where practical problems related to implementation of Life-Long Learning are mapped and analyzed and practical guidelines for educational establishment worked out.

The expected impact of the project is that the knowledge and competence of the managers of educational
establishments to implement lifelong learning in their organizations will be increased. They will be more skilful and capable to implement the responsibilities deriving from today’s socio-economic situation in enlarging Europe. The improved cooperation between adult training organizations serve for better overall co-operation capacity for developing high-quality training products, and definitely for further delivery of the new developed training course in their home countries.
