The first transnational meeting of the Nordplus Adult project “Step forward into growth” took place on 11-13th December 2016 in Narva, Estonia. The project aims at supporting self-directed learning in the workplace, increasing opportunities for developing transversal skills, and promoting growth mindset culture in the organisation. Three partner institutions and professionals in the field of adult education from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania share their best practices, exchange ideas, and work out tools and a model for adult training that supports self-directed learning and resilience of adult learners in the workplace.
Duration of the project: August 2016 – July 2018

The main project output is an e-book comprising a collection of tools and the model of adult training that supports self-directed learning in the workplace, guidelines, and recommendations on their use in various work environments.
Seven representatives of partner organisations came together at the project’s kick-off meeting in order to get to know each other better, to build a team for effective cooperation during two years, to achieve a common understanding on the ways and approaches of our work, to set up selection criteria for the tools, to define the target groups, to elaborate dissemination and evaluation plans. Two participants from each partner institution will be involved in the meeting.
