Project goals
The overriding objective of the project is to improve the quality and availability of vocational training and thus create more employment opportunities in the EU labour market. In addition, the project aims to build the cultural awareness of and partnerships  between former and new members of the European Union.
Specific goals:
- Architecture (including urban design issues in the Baltic region);
- Creating an evaluation system to help achieve the highest quality standards;
- Enhancing the cultural awareness of course participants in the intercultural and pan-European context;
- Teaching interpersonal communication skills in English in a specialized context;
- Increasing cultural awareness of the so-called "Old Europe" of minority language societies;
- Enhancing the qualifications of course participants to meet the demands of the EU labour market;
- Creating innovative methodological tools for the assessment and recognition of language skills;
- Facilitating access to education as a lifelong learning process involving people with disabilities;
- Promoting access to modern teaching methods.

General information
The project aims to create virtual professional English courses in the following areas:
- Architecture (including urban design issues in the Baltic region);
- Civil Engineering (including structures and materials);
- Environmental protection (including pollution of the Baltic Sea);
- Internet technologies and their latest applications;
- Interpersonal communication (including practical behaviour in business situations);
- Physics (including lasers, holography, nuclear power plants,and  integrated circuits).

The project uses state-of-the-art multimedia technologies (distance learning, m-Learning (Mobile Learning)) and introduces key changes in professional education through the use of new CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).
