Functional illiteracy in Europe represents a painful reality for approximately 55 million adults who are between 16 and 65 years old. According to OECD’s survey of adult competencies PIAAC, in Italy this number reaches a worrying 28% of the population.
The DECENT project has the objective of providing trainers and adult educators with effective tools in order to support their students in their learning and improving of skills and competences needed to face daily life’s challenges.
This and much more have been topics of discussion for the partners from Spain, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and Italy who have met in Palermo, Italy, in Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci’s headquarters for their fifth transnational partners meeting on April 10th and 11th 2019. This has represented an opportunity of discussion, among other things, on the contents of DECENT’S eTool, a digital tool which will include 6 complementary modules, rich with interactive exercises and interesting ideas on practical topics such as writing a cover letter and CV, learning how to recognize misleading offers and advertising, effective online communication, etc.
The partners were able to establish a fruitful exchange o of points of view and experiences and a constructive dialogue to bring up new and effective ideas to continue the good work with renewed energy!
