Project concept

Initial situation

Workplace learning is one of the most important innovation trends in the first decade of the 21st century. The flexibilisation and stronger process orientation of in-company training, but also a wide range of continuing education opportunities, make it necessary to make continuing education offers and formats more flexible and personalised. This is a challenge and development task for training service providers in particular. 

Target groups and their benefits

The FILIP project was aimed at managers who want to deal with their new task as learning facilitators and acquire competences for this. The concepts developed make innovative contributions to the strategic and autonomous competence development of employees in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Project goal

The FILIP project contributes to the strategic development of employee competences in SMEs. It develops a guidance concept and guidelines to support lifelong learning in SMEs in order to strengthen the guidance competence of managers, promote informal learning in SMEs and build a community of practice.
