Know and Can Association has the pleasure to invite you to take part in a training seminars for adult educartors practitioners in the frame of project ACE - „Developing Adult Educators‘ Competences to Promote Learners‘ Lifestyle Entrepreneurship“ (No.2015-LT01-KA2014-013404) which will be held on the following dates:  23.06.2017; 28.06.2017 and 03.07.2017

During the seminars representatives of the Association will present the project, its specifics and the created products.

The project is financed by Erasmus+ Programme, Key Action 2 “Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices”, Action “Strategic partnerships for adult education”. The project lifetime is 2 years – September 2015 – September 2017.

The idea of Lifestyle Entrepreneurship is centered on learners’ passions and hobbies. A lifestyle business is one where the owner seeks to make the business successful not only in terms of profitability but also in terms of the ability to avoid social isolation and foster engagement. The methodology of the project is based on the blended learning approach using the reversed/ flipped training method, ICT tools, Open Educational Resources.

We are happy to inform you that the first intellectual products created in the frame of project ROBIN Reinforcing cOmpetences to Build Inclusion through a New learning methodology №2015-1-RO01-KA204-015001 are already accessible on the website of Know and Can Association and could be downloaded free of charge.

The project ROBIN supports trainers and educators to reinforce their personal and social capabilities for specific support and successful social integration of children with migrant backgrounds affected by early school leaving. Thus children in a migrating situation will be better prevented from early school leaving and the risk of exclusion.


The Quality Active Ageing project aims will be achieved over a 30 month period through the seven partners each hosting a short-term joint staff training event, developing collaborative networks/ approaches and the creation of a Good Practice Guide on How Learning Contributes to Active Ageing.

As an answer to the increasing number of early school leavers, many countries in the EU have developed Second Chance education programs in order to reintegrate children and youths in schools so that they can obtain minimum qualifications. Children enrolled in Second Chance programs are mostly underqualified early-school leavers, who have difficult access to employment and often lack basic social skills to adequately integrate into the society, thus making them more vulnerable and exposed to abuse, exploitation and mistreatment.

Many of these children and youths have migrant background (children on the move) which makes them especially vulnerable. Therefore there is an immediate need to develop inclusion programs and adequate teaching methodologies to encourage migrant children to stay enrolled in education programs and lower their marginalisation.

QAA aims are to enhance the provision and quality of learning opportunities for seniors through like minded partners coming together to showcase their current provision, provide a forum for new ideas, identify and promote good practice. It is important, increased longevity is coupled with quality of life through active ageing and steps are taken to ensure through healthy living that older citizens remain independent as long as possible and contribute to society. Remaining active can reduce the likelihood of dementia (which is an increasing concern across Europe) and other health conditions.
