ANAFAE sees education as a permanent process, as an active source of development and innovation that accompanies individuals from the childhood throughout all phases of their lives. ANAFAE promotes the acknowledgement of the values of skills and competences obtained in various situations and phases of life, it doesn’t matter, if in formal, non-formal or informal settings, in short term or long term education programs.
Our approach to teaching and learning is learner-centered, supports self-directed learning, participation and collaboration during the learning process. Most of our education programs are based on national standards or international education products with well recognized certifications.
In our ALE Centers young adults gain new skills and competences for working life, improve their employability in various fields, like IT, web design, mobile phone repair, English, as well as in finance, business and entrepreneurship.
