In particular, EOPPEP aims at ensuring and upgrading quality in delivering non-formal education with certified private education and training providers. These institutions implement non-formal education programs taught by certified adult educators based on both certified professional outcomes and learning outcomes so that the citizen through a non-formal and / or informal learning path acquires certified knowledge, skills and competencies.
