Learning COMPASS: Open Pathways in a Sea of Learning

The decade that we have embarked upon presents enormous challenges for Europe. According to the fundamental goal of the ET 2020 WP: “Making lifelong learning and mobility a reality”, economic, technological and organizational changes impose new demands for a Europe more responsive to the labor market’s requirements. Flexible pathways have an important potential for encouraging participation in lifelong learning.

The COMPASS project aims to the Composition of Lifelong Learning (LLL) Opportunity Pathways through Standards-based Services investing on the establishment of a cohesive, strategic partnership for the long-term promotion of LLL related European strategies and the development of instruments that will raise the awareness of both learning opportunity providers and learning opportunity seekers and stimulate the design of policies for enhancing ET with alternative, flexible pathways on the basis of easy, technology-enhanced access to learning opportunities.
