All educational materials are freely available to local providers of education and training, and in addition we offer flexible training on how to use the available digital media and creative approaches in their teaching practice.
Our suite of digital resources makes use of innovative methodologies for working with disadvantaged groups to build basic skills and competences, and to improve the integration of all groups and individuals into rural communities.
