Are you an adult education organization or an organization offering training for adult education professionals? Have you ever thought of setting up an international course for adult educators? Do you know the opportunities of the Grundtvig programme and the Grundtvig IST (In-service training) action in this respect? Maybe you are already organizing Gundtvig courses but you have some questions?

Please feel welcome to join our third GINCO webinar on Wednesday 19 September. In this online seminar Jaap Van Lakerveld (PLATO, Leiden University) and Guy Tilkin (Alden Biesen, GINCO coordinator) will explain about “Key competences for adult education staff” and “Validation of learning outcomes in Grundtvig courses”. This information is helpful to all those who are organizing Grundtvig courses or wish to set up in-service training courses, or to those who wish to apply for a Grundtvig project in which a course is envisaged as one of the outcomes

During this webinar we will cover the following items:
-          The results of the study “Key competences for adult education staff” (Research voor Beleid, PLATO e.a.)
-          How to organize competence oriented courses
