On behalf of the Bulgarian Development Agency (BDA) located in Sofia, Bulgaria I would like to express our interest in collaborating with organizations from Romania as well as to suggest partnership in project proposals they might have under the Erasmus + Programme.
BDA is a non-profit organization, established in Sofia, Bulgaria. Our organization undertakes activities for public benefit focusing on issues related to regional development, innovation, achievement and implementation of EU targets, as well as improving the social conditions in our country.
Through the time we have successfully worked in different European Union funded projects, as well as with national projects in the spheres of education, transfer of innovation, vocational training, dissemination, partnership and others. Our experienced staff includes researchers, trainers and teachers, managers and IT specialists. Our activities are mainly concentrated in the following directions, relevant to EU Erasmus + priorities:
Facilitating the validation of non-formal and informal learning and its permeability with formal education pathways. Our organization works to promote professional development of staff and youth workers in ICT methodologies. Bulgarian Development Agency promotes entrepreneurship education in order to develop active citizenship, employability and new business creation (including social entrepreneurship).
Development and implementation of new learning and teaching methods (like new multidisciplinary curricula responding to the needs of labor market, learner-centered and real problem-based teaching and learning). Participation in peer learning and mutual learning activities through thematic working groups. In our projects we have been working to create new learning opportunities through the development and practical application of entrepreneurial skills. In our activities we support national policy reforms (e.g. building national networks and coalitions of interested groups). We are also working on raising awareness campaigns promoting the benefits of learning both for individuals, the economy, and society.
Implementation of innovative VET teaching and learning methods in order to respond to evolving skills and/or specific target public. In our work we are aiming to establish cross-sector cooperation for exchanging experiences and best practices between organisations, to develop, test and validate of new teaching methods or innovative pedagogical approaches. Integration of innovative approaches for teaching and learning, notably through more strategic and integrated use of ICTs and open educational resources (OER), as well as including opportunities to apply knowledge in practical projects/"real life" workplace situations. BDA works for facilitating the recognition and certification of the respective learning outcomes by introducing the ECVET principles in Bulgaria.
We will be very glad if we can participate together with organisations from your country in a new project proposal and it would be very helpful for us if it is possible for you to provide us with contacts of such organisations which would be interested to collaborate with BDA. We are ready to provide any additional information related to our activities.
