The State Institute for Further Education (SIFE) offers courses to both pupils and adults in foreign languages, accounting, computer studies and subjects for entrance examinations to the Universities. There are 40 SIFE institutes a number of which are in rural areas thus making the courses available to pupils from remote villages. The SIFE offers programs to primary and secondary pupils as well as to adults. The SIFE centers operate in the afternoon or evening, usually on the premises of Lyceums. More than 14,000 people attend classes annually at these centers which are staffed by qualified teachers.
The task of the State Institute for Further Education in the project is to prepare the program of the course Data bases for groups from regions with tourist value but high unemployment and carry it out in the target groups.
ROVC Formacion Tecnica is the Spanish Branch of ROVC FORMACION TECNICA. The firm was founded 32 years ago years ago in Ede (Holland). The main aim of ROVC is the technical training of professional workers in different industrial and scientific fields like computer science, automatization, robotics, electrical systems, electronic systems, hydraulics and pneumatics, etc.
ROVC trains about 12.000 students per year in Holland and Spain. It trains also unemployed people and immigrants for different official organizations.
The main task of ROVC in the project is to prepare programs and carry out courses Basic course of electricity and Basic mechanicals.
The Faculty of Economics was established in 1992 within the process of transformation the Technical University to a “full-fledged” university covering also non-technical disciplines.
The main aim of the Faculty is to develop knowledge and provide high-quality, professional education in the field of economic sciences and to contribute to the development of society and shaping of the regional economy through the provision of research and consultancy activity. Moreover, the Faculty provides education and services for the local and regional communities. The Faculty takes an active part in several European projects (EU R&D programs, especially the 6th Framework Program (FP)), also in projects connected with education of unemployed citizens.
The main task of TUKE in the project is to prepare survey forms for the evaluation purpose of the project, to implement on the e-learning Moodle platform an IT course (Basic computer skills), to prepare and implement the course Accounting for small enterprise and to carry the courses out in the region of Moldava nad Bodvou.
The University of Economics & Computer Science in Warsaw is a non governmental university. There are two stages of education in University of Economic & Computer Science, the first ending with bachelor's degree, (undergraduate studies) and the second program master's degree studies (graduate studies).
In the School there are the following tracks of study: Economics, Computer Sciences, International Relations, English Language and Literature Studies, Tourism and Recreation, Sociology.
The main tasks of WSEI in the project are: gathering information about regions under danger of unemployment, preparing programs and carrying out language courses (German and English) for people involved in the project living in the region of Kamień Pomorski, preparing certificates of participation in the project, preparing, together with the coordinator, the final records and summary of the project.
All project partners have a lot of experience in adult education. Additionally, ANTÇEV, SIFE and ROVC have a lot of experience in traditional methods based education of unemployed people and people from disadvantaged regions. These institutions provide courses that allow to improve professional skills of people involved in education there. Because of their experience ANTÇEV, SIFE and ROVC will prepare programs of courses to be accomplished within the project. The programs of courses will also be prepared by WSEI and TUKE. MSZI and TUKE specialize in using modern teaching methods. In particular both universities widely use distant learning as a form of support to traditional teaching methods. These partners will implement the courses on e-learning platform Moodle and will carry out on-line courses.

Project title: IT Education as an activating factor of adults from areas under danger of unemployment
General information about the project
The project concerns adults who are looking for a job because they are unemployed or would like to change their present occupation but due to various reasons, especially connected with their environment, face difficulties in finding a job. The project program is aimed at people living in various weakly urbanized environments: countryside and small towns. The accomplishment of the project is a multistep program. Based on statistical data, in the initial phase of a project, target regions were defined and essential contacts with local representatives were made. The courses to be accomplished in the first step of the project were determined and their programs prepared:
Two of the above courses have already been carried out in a traditional way by the institutions that prepared the programs. After translating into national languages of the project partners the courses will be carried out in all participating countries. The accomplishment of the project will be based on blended learning, i. e., will involve traditional and modern teaching methods connected with IT. Due to the peculiarity of the project the main stress will be put on distant learning. Therefore in the second stage of the project the courses will be implemented on the e-learning platform Moodle, adjusted to the requirements of the project. In the final stage of the project all courses will be available on the e-learning platform Moodle and can serve as a support to traditional courses offered e. g., by Employment Agencies or can be treated as fully independent courses. As a supplement to courses, guides to courses and leaflets will be prepared.
The project is supported by European Commission as part of the Socrates Grundtvig 2 program (LLP).
