Let’s meet FACE: the Foundation Agro-Centre for Education from North Macedonia

Since 2006, FACE as an organization has been dealing with development of training programs in non-formal education and promoting the non-formal and lifelong learning concept, focusing on international cooperation.

The focus of FACE activities are the opportunities funded by Erasmus+ Program. EU through the form of Erasmus+ Program gives the opportunity by learning mobility in terms of transnational mobility undertaken for a period of time, consciously organized for educational purposes, to acquire new competences and knowledge for their own staff, as well as for learners from the group of FACE’s Stakeholders. A wide variety of projects and activities that were implemented so far in formal or non-formal settings are in big support for achieving the strategic goals of the Organization.

The education services of FACE strive to ensure equal access to knowledge for all stakeholders, students and teachers, adjacent industries, government and local administration, entrepreneurs, advisory service

The projects that FACE has implemented have fostered a large number of users of the educational services that we offer and we are continuously working on adjusting the non-formal educational programs to the needs of the market economy rules, the needs of the labor market and public services.
