Competence oriented open learning for disadvantaged learners

The COOL KA1 Courses

There are a number of courses related to the COOL approach which were developed in the framework of the project between 2022 and 2023.

A couple of them will be offered to a European audience via the PROVIDE platform, powered by our reveal network. The platform provides the opportunity to access European courses for Adult Education professionals which are offered by qualified organisations at different locations in Europe.

If you are an AE organisation and registered to receive KA1 funding for your professionals or learners, you may find it interesting to have a look at our offers.


The COOL Continuing Profesional Development Programme aims to qualify learning and development professionals as “Facilitators for Open Learning”. The course was piloted in Bordeaux in October 2022 with 18 European professionals and is available on our Moodle platform.

It consists of the following modules:

  • COOL LEVEL5 approach – a holistic approach to plan and deliver competence-based learning in informal and non-formal contexts
  • COOL Competence oriented learning and validation
  • COOL Facilitation of Design Thinking workshops incl. all steps of the design thinking process and methods and tools which can be applied to facilitate each step
