The Learning Partnership Project is an initiative that brings together training and development organisations, enterprises and learners in rural areas. The project aims to exchange ideas and experiences of European partners and benefit from innovation, added value of produce and promote of the countryside resources.
Rural areas suffer from poor communications and services and traditionally lower incomes than the town and cities.
The partners will organise a series of workshops and visits in each of the partnership countries to share and evaluate the good practice in land use and new initiatives for income generation. They will also compare the training and support available to meet the needs of the adult population and businesses.
The results will be disseminated within the training and development organisations and implemented in our work with rural enterprises and communities.
The project will help to identify and plan targeted training and support to create and protect jobs for a population that is growing older and identify real opportunities for young people that are needed to maintain sustainable communities.
