The Learning Partnership consisted of eight partners from eight different countries with various professional backgrounds, interests and levels of experience. The diversity of partner organisations was central to the project, as it brought with it, a range of participant’s expertise across a wide spectrum of areas. This unique combination of organisations and skills significantly contributed to the breadth of learning and cultural experience over the lifetime of the project. The partnership aimed to promote volunteerism and the quality of volunteer services was identified as a key issue, so the partnership proposed to identify the criteria which are critical to underpin Quality Standards in building, developing and managing Adult Volunteering Services. The major part of the project set out to observe every component of the process of establishing and then managing the on-going needs of a volunteer service. The partners learned from each other and also from organisations with an already established and reputable volunteer service in each of the partner countries.

LIFELONG LEARNING PROGRAMME / GRUNDTVIG – Learning partnerships /
The main objective of this partnership is to make older people (50+)socially and educationally active and to exchange experiences and good practice concerning the target group between partner organizations. It aims to achieve this goal by teaching and learning foreign languages and basic ICT skills(using the internet, writing e-mails etc) in order to communicate with learnersin other European countries. It aims to raise the cultural awareness by the active involvement of the learners in preparing and exchanging information about their countries; regions, everday life, customs, traditions, religion, art, history, architecture, culture. These presentations will appear on the website which will connect the learners both virtually and in reality as some of them will visit their counter parts in other countries.
It will promote various learning activities such as learning outside the formal classroom – visits to museums, art galleries and places of interest. It will also enourage the involvement of the younger generation (grandchildren) in assiting the older generation to prepare their presentations in electronic form. The project will also encourage the learners to take interest in topics such as; active European citizenship and international senior voluntary services and this will be the added value of the project.
