Looking for transnational partners

A&O highlights the importance of workplace learning. We want to influence policy makers, public authorities, trade unions, businesses and other interested parties to make decisions that support workplace learning as a tool for meeting the changing demands on the labour market.

A&O are interested in finding examples of how these stake holders work with workplace learning in Europe, sharing ideas and experiences.

Between 2007 and 3013, the European Social Fund in Sweden will support around 4 000 projects that promote competence development and help combat exclusion from the labour market. A&O are compiling, analysing and sharing experiences gained through the course of the projects to better understand the conditions for and benefits of workplace learning for the community, businesses and the individual.

A&O stands for arbetsplatslärande och omställning i arbetslivet which means "Workplace learning and adjustment to changes in the labour market."

A&O is a collaborative project run by Luleå University of Technology, the University of Gothenburg, Linköping University and the APeL R&D centre, financed by the European Social Fund (ESF).
