Project Description

The ConnectedLearning@YW project aims to make learning available to everyone. The project will produce a European online platform and a mobile application for easier access, which will allow individuals to browse various seminars and training programmes (formal and non-formal learning), based on specific filters, such as language, subject, age etc., which are offered in various areas, by specific organisations. The project’s target group are young people who can benefit from the easy access to information regarding participation in various programmes, so they can develop their skills and enhance their employability. More specifically, the project emphasizes young people with less opportunities, such as early school leavers, youth that live in remote areas, refugees, immigrants people who speak another language, etc.
