Nine projects totalling EUR 2.1 million provide social and learning skills, entrepreneurship competence, foreign languages and Estonian for non-native speakers. They also offer support and follow-up activities that increase the sustainability of learning outcomes and bridge the development of key competences and motivation for the continuation of studies in formal and non-formal education.
In 2017-18, courses will be available in all regions and will address 5 400 adults without professional or vocational education, with disabilities and with poor knowledge of Estonian. A special training package aimed at improving digital competences of medical workers will also become available through these projects. A new call for proposals will be announced in 2018. The training is jointly financed by the European Social Fund.
