  24. 24. 3. Elaboration of theories and methodologies: the LdV project “Learn.Empowerment - Self-directed Learning for Low-skilled Unemployed People” (2004 - 2007)According to forecasts of employment trends, skill requirementsfor jobs are increasing, whereas job opportunities for low-skilledand unskilled workers are facing a dramatic decline. Sincelearning has become a necessary precondition for successfulemployment, the concept of "self-directed learning" can be asolution for this dilemma.EU-programme: Leonardo da VinciProject co-ordinator: BEST, Helmut KronikaProject period: October 2004 - March 2007Website: www.learn-empowerment.org 24
  25. 25. 3.

Elaboration of theories and methodologies: the LdV project “Learn.Empowerment - Self-directed Learning for Low-skilled Unemployed People” (2004 - 2007)Analysing tender specificationsThe project also addresses another issue: "How can innovativeproject results be transferred into the funded trainingmainstream?" Currently, the most effective barriers from doing soare the tender specifications from funding organisations, which donot allow for high flexibility. Therefore, the project has developedmodels to show how tender specifications can be modified inorder to allow for more flexibility. 26
