What is EPALE and Erasmus Project Manager?
The Erasmus+ programme is one of the European Union's most important projects in the field of teaching and learning. Usually, when we think about Erasmus, we believe it's all about undergraduates or master students who study for a few months at a foreign university, but the programme is much more than that. Project manager course is only one of the online courses that are part of EPALE. EPALE is the electronic platform dedicated to adult education in Europe and another piece of the Erasmus+ programme.
Training beyond University
Within the Erasmus programme there is training beyond university. Although we normally associate Erasmus with universities, this is not always the case. The EPALE project aims to build a learning community for adults at European level. It is a way of distributing the knowledge of professionals from different fields. As a professional, you will be able to share knowledge and debates with other professionals in your sector, both in your own country and in other countries of the European Union.
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young." This famous quote of Henry Ford, perfectly explains the spirit of this initiative. We should never stop learning, and learning from case studies and discussing with colleagues is a great opportunity to see your work from another point of view. It will definitely help you to continue with the same enthusiasm as on the first day.
EPALE, a community full of opportunities
As we have mentioned, the project management course that you can find here is one of many courses offered on the platform. The main advantage that this training offers, is not only that of taking a theoretical course, once the course is completed you have two extra possibilities:
- Attend an advanced module of the course, in this aspect, you will be able to interact with other international participants.
- Join an informal network of other project managers in Europe where you can share your projects and experiences with them.
The main benefit of this community is the possibility to create new relationships. Every participant in your sector is a potential partner who can help your project grow with an international expansion, find new opportunities to get a job or collaborate with researchers from similar projects to yours.
The Erasmus programme has a wide range of support at different levels of education. EPALE platform, made to promote adult online education in Europe, is a community for learning professionals, researchers, members of academic institutions and many others from different European countries.
Project management course is one of all the courses offered in the EPALE platform, but you can find much more. Whether you are looking for courses on culture, entrepreneurship, languages, politics, social inclusion or researching, there are many professionals within the community with whom you can share valuable knowledge.
