Formal lifelong learning

An organized learning process through a verified educational programme that acquires a public document on a particular degree of education and the acquired qualifications are entered in the employment record book. Formal education programs can be verified as training or specialization programmes.

Informal lifelong learning

An organized learning process through a non-verifiable educational programme focused on professional training of adults, developing different social skills as well as personal development. Upon completion of the programme, a Certificate of participation is issued to the participants. The informal education program can be an “in-house” education or “public” education.

In-house programs

An informal educational programme whose design and execution is tailored to the specific needs of a client (most often the company), and serves as a professional training or specialization in accordance with the client's needs. The main purpose of the In-house programme is to strengthen the human resources of a company, in order to be more efficient and more competitive on the market.

Public programmes

An informal educational programme that is focused and tailored to citizens in the wider sense of the word, (an unknown client; open public), and serves as a professional training or specialization, as well as personal growth and development of participants.
