Since 2006, FACE has been involved in the development of non-formal education and training programmes and their promotion, with a focus on international cooperation. At the core of FACE’s activities are the opportunities funded by the Erasmus+ programme: transnational learning mobility carried out for a given period of time, with an educational purpose. A wide variety of projects and activities that have been implemented so far on a formal or non-formal basis are of great support to the achievement of the organisation’s strategic objectives. FACE’s educational services strive to ensure equitable access to knowledge for all: stakeholders, students and teachers, industry, government and local administration, entrepreneurs, advisory service providers, experts, governmental organisations, FACE employees and, in particular but not exclusively, members of rural communities.
FACE’s 13 years of experience and more than 40 projects have resulted in educational components and more than 120 events (training courses, seminars, round tables, workshops), based on the connection between education and research, as well as between education and the labour market, with a focus on promoting innovative solutions and applicable mechanisms.
The projects that FACE has implemented have enabled a large number of users to make use of educational services that we continuously update in order to adapt formal education programmes to the needs of the labour market.
The main areas in which FACE works are: Non-formal education – (focused on Vocational Education and Training – VET). Most of FACE’s activities emphasise the promotion of the quality of non-formal education, as well as the creation of synergies and interactions between formal, informal and non-formal learning.
