Project: The Game Changer

Jan 21, 2017Posted by ABA Admin

 
The Game Changer

ABA members and partners are currently involved in the development of a new Erasmus + funded project 'The Game Changer'. The main aim is to provide support for people in a transition situation through skills development and accreditation.

Transforming trends grow both globally and at European level. Change affects everyone; it can be disruptive and difficult for individuals to transition through, particularly if a change crosses international borders, cultures and languages. ABA looks forward to supporting the partnership in the development of new educational platforms and skills testing in support of our mission to reduce or remove potential barriers to employment and mobility of skilled individuals.
