Basic skills trainers all over Europe name professional exchange among trainers, targeted further education and networking as most important in assuring quality in the provision of basic skills education. So far, professional exchange among trainers has taken place on a regional or national level. ShareIT offers a cross border opportunity to exchange experience, learn from each other and network in a very specific and individualized context. ShareIT wants to encourage trainers from participating countries to go on transnational exchange and attend the training in one of the partner countries to learn from colleagues and improve their competencies. Trainers receive a theoretical and practical insight into the work of their colleagues abroad.
