Cooperation with business

What is it for?

Cooperation with business can develop the entrepreneurial skills and boost the employability of adult learners. It can also improve the management, leadership, and relevance of adult education programmes.

Once adult learners have completed their course, they have a potential route to employment with a business partner. In addition, businesses can ensure that institutions are able to respond quickly to the demands of the labour market.

What does it involve?

Work with businesses can involve:

  • Job-shadowing;
  • Collaboration on curricula;
  • Training courses and seminars.
Who can take part?

The following organisations from participating countries may apply for a partnership with adult education institutions:

  • Public and private businesses, including large, medium, or small companies;
  • Public sector, national, and regional bodies;
  • Intermediaries and associations.
