At present EU countries seem to have various methodologies and approaches both on assessment and on teaching of soft skills. At the same time, there are many different ways of defining and describing soft skills. SOSTRA project is aiming to identify the need and importance of Adult Educator soft skills (defined in our context as transferable personal attributes and abilities that enable to interact effectively and harmoniously with others both at intra- and inter-personal and at socio-emotional level). The purpose is to sustain the introduction of soft skills in European Adult Education by inviting Adult educators, Managers and HR staff (recruiters) in educational organizations, in-company trainers, training consultants and policy makers on local, regional, national and European level to join the partners in discussions and different project activities and finally in utilizing the project results. We are cooperating to intertwine digital and competence-based education into soft skills development in the field of European adult education. By creating a digital open badge-driven learning process, the project introduces new ways to recognize prior skills and competence, as well as a unique opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge, where digital badges are electronic microcredentials that can be used to identify and promote competences. Badges (such as the Mozilla Open Badge, Badge) refer to the student’s, the earner’s, participation in education or skills development;
