WeTrain – Suitable Training Solutions for Women

The Corona pandemic has changed people’s lives. It has brought to light gender inequalities and structural disadvantages for women.
This is where WeTrain comes in: Partners from Germany, Italy and Poland are establishing Forward-looking Learning Centres for exemplary gender-sensitive adult education.

We demonstrate what educational work tailored to the realities of women’s lives can look like. The aim is to improve educational opportunities for women, to reduce disadvantages and strengthen the empowerment and resilience of women.

The project is aimed at women regardless their age, professional and social situation. The programmes include conflict resolution, recognising and using one’s own strengths, and sustainable consumption. The objective is to enable women to use their competencies and pass them on to others.

Skills acquisition is combined with opportunities for networking with the goal of making their voices heard in society.

As outcomes, the partnership is developing:
  • Strategy and process proposal for promoting women as experts and innovators
  • Innovative educational offers for women
  • Guide to capacity building
  • White paper „Gender-equitable adult education”

In parallel, there is an intensive exchange with stakeholders from politics, business and civil society to support sustainable anchoring.

The results of WeTrain can be used throughout the EU. WeTrain contributes to the EU Commission’s goals for social cohesion and active citizenship.

 „The topics of WeTrain – tailor-made educational offers for women and more social cohesion – are also on the agenda of our Center for Women’s Rights. Within an international partnership, we can contribute to improvements towards a gender-equitable adult education across the EU.”
