CPIP

Centre for promoting
lifelong learning

CPIP is an NGO built around the idea of lifelong learning as a community development instrument. We work since 2006 with different target groups that have in common the need and desire of learning. We implement European projects that promote the active citizenship and the democratic approach in accessing learning resources, for learners with low basic skills, from remote areas, or that have a big distance to learning and education. With a multidisciplinary approach, we work by means of participatory research, co-production process, design-thinking approach, and grass-root level involvement in co-decision. Also. CPIP is cooperating at European level, being part of 3 network and coordinating one.

We have specialised in developing together with youth and adults, learning games, instruments and European learning experiences. Representing our end-users, we have involved over 200 volunteers across more than 70 implemented projects. CPIP promotes the culture of “lifelong learning” through the active involvement of community members in developing a coherent implementation strategy of the concept and practice of lifelong learning.

The vision of CPIP is a European one. Education overcomes the borders of scholarly age and training is a lifestyle that goes beyond the walls of a specialized institution. With this in mind, the CPIP team promotes a fundamental concept for our existence as specialists active in European construction: lifelong learning.

The mission of CPIP is to bring forward the concept of lifelong learning and make it accessible to the communities with which we come into contact.

Role in the YSS Project

Our role is to be a regional pole of learning for the West Region of Romania and to tailor the learning process to the specific needs of the learners we represent. We are working with young disengaged from learning, from remote rural areas. CPIP has expertise in contributing to the specific content development of the project outputs, as well as the technical implementation of the project.

CPIP will do research at regional level, involving companies, employment representatives, regional stakeholders and most important the young people themselves. We will also be involved in the co-design of the training materials, supporting learning professionals to mentor the youngsters in their learning pathways. We will coordinate the set-up and development of 3 local learning centres and support their active role in the local communities.

CPIP, as beneficiary partner, will lead on one of the work packages (WP5) of the project and contribute to the program activities as planned by the project promoter. Will establish partnerships with local authorities from rural areas in Timis and Caras Severin counties (western part of Romania) and involve the necessary number of young people in the project activities. Moreover, CPIP will develop the training program “Motivation for an active life” in the Life Skills learning programme, as well as the MOOC 3 – Community service development (a 2-hour long MOOC for PES on how to create ” Pathway to improve employment and community awareness through Community Service Work for NEET 25-29″)
