Manual for professionals and policy-makers

By development of a professional road-map based on scientific evaluation realised a high quality road map for professionals in guiding future learning processes of oldest old, migrants and women in cooperation with youngsters will be realised. This roadmap offers professionals in lifelong learning possibilities in improving quality of future learning programs. Due to the focus on marginalised target groups in this roadmap promotion of equity in future lifelong learning is possible. Finally the methodology explained in the roadmap is based on the interactive and intergenerational learning processes with the aforementioned target-groups and will stimulate realisation of new creative insights in education and training. Besides professionalisation of teachers, coaches and trainers of the new learning areas the policy makers themselves need to be able to facilitate these learning areas in the local and regional settings in each European country. Therefore a catalogue with recommendations will be made for the policy makers in providing new learning areas in a realistic and sustainable way based on the experiences of the pilots of the learning areas. Central question is what local or regional policy makers need to facilitate in order to realise a sustainable interactive learning process with lifelong learning organisations. More concrete recommendations will be made concerning co-operation with other partners (like cultural organisations), possible finances, innovative pathways in recruiting new learners and the translation of the surplus value for policy-makers in order to gain finances for a future follow-up.




As most of the countries didn’t succeed in this during the last years, the GUTS consortium is convinced that common European knowledge is necessary to fight this problem.













The results of the project will be delivered in all EU Member States in order to professionalise trainers and policy makers in developing and facilitating own sustainable learning areas
