Good Practices

One of the main objectives of the project is to exchange different good practices on different topics related to the development of adult educators’ competences who work with disadvantaged adults. Gathering the experience of each project partner, a booklet was created integrating good practices from the following topics.

Active Participation

Why is active participation important for disadvantaged adults? According to the Council of Europe: “Participation and active citizenship is about having the right, the means, the space and the opportunity and where necessary the support to participate in and influence decisions and engage in actions and activities so as to contribute to building a better society.” Through adult education, we support disadvantaged young adults to participate in society as a whole and in their local communities. Adult education can build and strengthen a wide range of skills that are essential for active citizenship, such as critical thinking and debating. In vulnerable contexts, promoting literacy and further education leads to the possibility to make more informed decisions in essential matters, such as healthcare or children’s education. Participation strengthens the feeling of belonging to a community, thus fostering inclusion, tolerance, diversity and solidarity.

Intercultural Learning

Intercultural Learning Competence includes recognition and appreciation of one’s own and others’ multiplicities and how they come into play in different situation. The theory and practice of intercultural learning have been under continuous development. Intercultural learning as a concept, and even more as a practice or process, is not isolated. It is linked to our realities, to societal changes, politics, economic development, justice, human rights, education, ecology, health and biology, globalisation and so on. In fact, intercultural learning can intersect with all areas in which human beings interact.


Tackling unemployment is much more than helping someone in finding a job. An efficient strategy has to be holistic and consider the human beings in its whole and complexity. It means supporting people in discovering their passions, increasing their self-esteem, createing a supportive network, facilitating their learning competence development. It is about promoting employability.

Employability and employment are not synonymous. Employment refers to being employed (=having a contract) in a certain moment of a person’s life, while employability refers to a person’s capability for gaining and maintaining employment during his/her life.

Intergenerational Learning

We understand Intergenerational Learning as a process of bringing together people of different ages and generations so they can exchange knowledge, skills and experience and learn together and from each other. It may also help find joint solutions to some local problems, reduce social tension, deal with isolation and mental health of the elder population. 

Digital Tools for Learning

Digital learning means a digital technology or internet-based educational delivery model, facilitated by technology that gives learners some element of control over time, place, path, or pace of learning. It includes access to live, recorded and supported learning resources, that means digital materials and technologies that support teaching and learning. With the expression digital learning tools we include computers, tablets, software, applications, or other technology necessary to access a learning digital program (that can be addressed to students, teachers, professionals, adult learners etc.)


Supervision is a professional tool for supporting professionals at work with clients, support managers for organisation work and development and a tool for overcoming difficulties at work. In Latvia, supervision in the social work and psychosocial work field is mandatory for at least 21 hours a year (from 01.07.22., at least 30 hours a year), which is reimbursed by the employer. Supervision is one of the most common support tools for preventing burn out and to develop professional competencies. At last 5 years supervision is more often used in educational, youth work and health care areas.
