Welcome !

This is the website of the Leonardo da Vinci pilot project:

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING OF TEACHERS IN BIOLOGICAL AND AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES FOR RURAL AREAS

RO/01/B/F/PP-141072

 

The project focuses on improving vocational training for teachers of biology and agricultural sciences and their students in three transition economies. The countries Romania, Bulgaria and Slovenia - represent a range of agro-economic and social conditions and levels of development.

Agriculture is a significant sector in all three countries and an important source of livelihood and employment but access to vocational education and training is severely limited by resource constraints, scattered populations and historical antecedents.

Project activities explore various ways in which biological and agricultural education can be made more widely available to disadvantaged and remote communities, particularly via distance learning, as well as ways to increase access to teacher training and the upgrading of teaching skills in biology and agriculture.
