LPfA is a newly established entity ( 2014) by young pioneers who believe that there are learning solutions for anybody. LPfA is certified LifeLong Center by the Greek Ministry of Education – in specific by the National Organisation for the Certification of Qualifications and Vocational Guidance. We are providers of short term VET classes & courses targeting to young graduates and not only in order to facilitate their insertion to the job market and workplace practical experience

We are:

  • In active and constant affiliation with

  • An organisation with actions mostly to be undertaken by young generation bursting from the fields of Computer Enginnerring, Sociology and Pedagogics, and with personal experience through involvement in European projects of CYCLISIS, DAFNI KEK, ERASMUS +, etc, as well as equiped with experts supporting in the background, eager to mentor and productively discuss.

 

The Implementation of national projects targeting to youth unemployment through training, councelling and work placement (Voucher for Youth 18-29 years old).

With formative approaches and constant evaluation methods, we come to understand that both the paradigm shift to alternative modes of learning – such as individual plans,tailor made, blended learning, open sources etc- and the recognition of the confusion and misinformation around the pluralistic learning spectrum, are to be concidered in not only a strictly learning level, but in a socialy active and transformative way of thinking and self-awareness.
