Grundtvig Workshops enable adults to participate in learning events taking place in another European country participating in the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). Workshops are funded with support from the European Commission, therefore they are free of charge for the participants (all the costs are covered by the workshop organizers).

Since 2013, the Workshop Action provides training to Adult Education staff working on literacy issues exclusively. The objectives are to give present and future teachers and staff  the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the European dimension in teaching adults with literacy problems, to enhance their knowledge of other European countries' education systems and their provision of adult literacy and to improve the specific skills  they require to teach literacy skills to adults.
