Language learning for VET learners
Did you know that the Erasmus+ call for proposals 2017 entitles even more vocational learners to benefit from the Online Linguistic Support than before? The online system facilitates language learning for Erasmus+ participants, enabling them to assess their skills in the foreign languages they will use to work, study, or volunteer abroad. After the assessment, they can sign up for an online course to improve. As of this year, VET learners going abroad for a minimum of 19 days can test and improve their linguistic skills.

Adult learning
Adult education projects empower adult learners with fewer opportunities
There are multiple pathways for adult learners with fewer opportunities to improve their skills, and many projects are making those pathways more obvious and readily available. Whether it’s helping adults with learning disabilities undergo training to become more autonomous, or proving that real-life competences gained during migration are applicable to many jobs, these projects are paving the way for less social exclusion throughout Europe.

From jail to heritage preservation
Erasmus+ has been working to help adult prisoners find new pathways for years, to great success. This story highlights a man who took up painting while in prison in Bulgaria, and found it changed his life so much he now works in heritage preservation. That’s just one of many similar success stories to come out of implementing art education programmes in prisons. Now, a new project is looking toward bringing even more learning opportunities to inmates.
