ACTING UP project addressed the problem of low level of participation of adult learners in lifelong learning. The project aimed to exploit the potential of drama techniques to increase the motivation of adult learners. The methodology fostered the work of trainers and counsellors supporting the adult learners. Experienced training and educational organisations from five European Union countries implemented the programme in Poland, Scotland-UK, France, Portugal and Italy.
The project set the objective to engage adult learners (especially those low-skilled with fewer opportunities) in continuing education through the use of drama techniques and up-skill them to find proper education and employment pathways.
Duration: 36 months (September 2014– August 2017)
