BACKGROUND

Heritage education is not only to be seen as a topic in ‘history, art and culture’ subjects but offers great potential for reaching the Lifelong Learning transversal key competences as set out by the Reference Framework: learning to learn, social and civic competences, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship and cultural awareness and expression.
Aqueduct is a Comenius Multilateral project aiming to improve the acquisition of key competences through heritage education and to build teacher capacity for competence oriented education in a heritage context.
The project targets teacher trainers, initial teacher training students, teachers in schools reaching 6 – 14 age groups and educational programmers in heritage sites.
