Erasmus+ strategical cooperation project EFFECT
2019 – 2022


The project “Efficiency in adult learning and training” (EFFECT) was implemented during September 2019 to April 2022. Four educational training companies from Estonia (Kasvulava and Loome, DevelopDesign), Latvia (Spring Valley) and Slovakia (Topcoach) developed a curriculum and toolkit for adult educators as a result of an Erasmus+ strategical cooperation project, which aimed to contribute to the challenges with adults who are low-educated or with out of date skills. (Read more about it under “About the project idea”). The project partners shared a common view, that learning efficiency can be increased with the learner centred approach in the learning process.
