Breaking Barriers aims to tackle the need of the cohort of low-skilled literate adults between 25 and 65 years of age to ultimately help learners build new skills and improve career prospects. Each participating country faces different difficulties in tackling low- skilled literate adults. The ubiquity of digital media makes this need more significant and opens up new opportunities for more engaging teaching and learning methods in basic literacy teaching. Through the strategic collaboration of 8 partners, the project aims to introduce cutting-edge techniques to tackle literacy challenges in adult learning across cultures.
