After signing up via an e-learning platform (provided by the coordinator), every partner will have to do the prepared exercises. The exercises will improve the knowledge of partnership institutions’ representatives and the women learners and support innovative ITC learning methods.
The lessons will be given by qualified trainers, via workshops, lectures and other subject-oriented meetings.
