TEAL (Transitions into Enterprise for Adult Learners) responds to the challenges faced by adult learners by providing them with new pathways to re-engage with learning and improve their knowledge and competences to consider making a transition into enterprise e.g. from unemployment or redundancy.
Learning how to manage transitions are useful skills for life. TEAL brings together organisations engaged in informal adult learning to share best practice and experiences as well as 50+ learners to share their experiences and needs. The aim is to help them to re-engage with a love of learning, with a view to make the decision to learn about starting up in business. TEAL focuses on learner participation in addition to teaching methods in adult education; with partners sharing their expertise in teaching older learners, for instance through mentoring, coaching and E-Inclusion tools.
