In what way is the project innovative and/or complementary to other projects already carried out?
The project is innovative in view on “non-formal” education because of its target group, which is defined as the “unknown trainers”.

The project is going to link the informal sector of help and training with the non-formal sector of education a training. To be successful in this task, the project partners presents each other innovative “best-practise” about the following topics in “non-formal” education:
a. innovative measures to give access to training opportunities for the “unknown trainers”.
b. innovative training methods for trainings in divers groups of refugees in non-formal education (e.g. trainings for refugees to become trainer for refugees).
c. innovative is the aim of the project to define indicators for good quality trainings for “unknown trainers” according to the needs of the target group.
d. Development of new qualifications and certifications according to the needs of the “unknown trainers”
