Our aims

We firmly believe in the ‘3E philosophy’ – Embrace, Enhance, Empower – our guiding principles to promote knowledge-based skills which businesses and organisations expect from their workforce to drive economic growth in the 21st century.

Our programmes provide relevant and authentic learning experiences through hands-on activities for young people aged between 18 and 25, adults and professionals. We believe in supporting education beyond the classroom in new environments that complement traditional methods of learning.

Our expertise

ELN has a team of experts who have worked in education and industry in the UK, EU and Asia. With a broad knowledge of the Academic, VET (Vocational Education and Training) and Enterprise fields, we deliver skills programmes that define and develop the individual’s path to leadership. In fact, in the words of Harold R. McAlindon (author of The Little Book of Big Ideas) we “do not follow where the path may lead.  (We) Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

We value diversity and appreciate the benefits that individuals with unique backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures, can inspire and motivate change. We harness this diversity to empower every individual to fulfil personal goals and enhance his or her transition to the workplace.

Our partnerships

Entrepreneurship and VET skills form our core activities. Together with our partners in Germany, Romania, Italy, France and Sweden, we have, over the years, managed and developed sustainable and inclusive Lifelong Learning Programmes that cater to a diverse community of stakeholders such as commercial enterprises, education providers, financial organisations, public bodies and NGOs.

We have implemented training related to Enterprise, Gender Equality, Strategy, Planning and Formulation. By sharing best practices based on international research and innovative methods, ELN and our partners have instigated programmes that address the growing gap between skills individuals have and skills that are needed. These programmes include (but are not limited to) European Lifelong Learning projects such as Leonardo, Grundtvig, Youth in Action and other European Union programmes (for example, KA2 promoting language learning through our project AG Novel – funded by the EU under 543284-LLP-1-2013-1-DE-KA2-KA2MP – using the concept of graphic novels for mobile devices)
