Project YODUL

Presentation of partners


Orhaneli Halk Egitimi Merkezi (Orhaneli Community Training Center) has been serving the community for 31 years. Socially and environmentally, Orhaneli is an undeveloped city and, thus, most dwellers of the town comprise people who have not been able to have formal education and who have been unaware of the informal education. That is why our education plans are based on educating adults. As an Institution, we have undertaken the task of educating those adults who have lost their self confidence in themselves, have been suffering from social inadequacy and lack of communication with the young.

Orhaneli, as being an agricultural and rural town in Turkey, have many uneducated adults and many of these people live in villages in Orhaneli.


The mission of the E-SENIORS Institute is to support ICT-related programs targeted towards seniors and the disabled. These include:

* research and development
* observation and prospective studies
* dissemination and promotion of information and best practices
* monitoring and training

Implementation is through an essentially bottom-up approach: initiatives in accordance with user needs and tested in the field. Underlying this approach, particularly in developing and building upon existing networks, is the triangular symbiosis among users, researchers and producers.


Cepa Rosalia de Castro, de Leganes (Madrid),

The school "CEPAPUB ROSALIA DE CASTRO" is a Public Educational Provider for Adults located in Leganes, a town in the South of the capital city of Madrid. The school offers both formal and informal education for Adults: as far as formal progammes are concerned, the school offers the opportunity of getting official certificates in Primary and Secondary Statutory studies which enable students to get better jobs and widen their access to further education. As far as informal education is concerned, the school is involved in many projects together with different non-governmental instit utions, such as ACEAL, Leganes Verde, FAD, etc., which deal with different areas of interest such as citizenship and lifelong educational programmes, drug addiction prevention, green projects, etc. Actually, these aspects are all included in the educational project of the school, which has a history of 26 years now.

Around 1500 students attend the school within a wide timetable which goes from 9:00 to 21:30. This schedule flexibility allows adults to incorporate to the different programmes in a realistic manner, having in mind problems deriving from work or home activities. The students' profile, as one can imagine, is quite varied, going from those students aiming to get a Certificate in Statutory Primary and Secondary Education after failing in their early lives at school, to those elderly who feel the need to improve their digital competence, or just want to incorporate to activities boosting their cultural expectancies or promoting active citizenship participation. Furthermore, we also offer programmes addressed to immigrants which cover language proficiency courses in Spanish as well as other promoting the intercultural exchange and integration plans. Illiteracy is also a main concern of our school and we develop specific programmes addressing those who, due to multiple reasons, could not have access to basic literacy and numeracy.

The Educational Project of the school is based on adapting the teaching-learning process to the profiles of the students by creating our own methodological resources and material so that they adjust maximally to the idiosyncrasy of the groups. We offer, apart from Primary and Secondary Statutory courses (regulated under governmental criteria in Spain), a huge range of workshops, courses and programmes including Computing, ESL courses, P.E., Handcrafts, Artcrafts, Spanish as a Foreing Language, lectures on various topics, talks, etc.
