The objective and goals of AHEAD are in line with those of the organisations in the project consortium.
Specifically, the coordinating organisation is involved in planning and implementing creative activities applied to training at different levels: vocational, informal, addressing adults, youngsters and children.
The consortium features two institutions which are actively involved in field education and whose core activities are consistent with those which will be planned, developed and implemented within AHEAD. In particular, the expertise of such organisations in the integration of technologies in educational and training initiatives, and in the research for improving teaching quality and innovation will give a significant contribution to the quality of pedagogical frameworks and will make it possible to produce effective and efficient training resources, actually addressing senior citizens as a target group.
Finally, the consortium features three organisations which actually deliver training to senior members of society and involve them in activities aimed at promoting their active participation and integration in today's world, such as travel, seminars, movies shows, etc.
The associated partners will support the identification of needs and will also facilitate the piloting and validation of the model.
