The paper presents at the beginning the concept of Blended Learning (BL) and some of its implementation in Romania. In this context, is introduced the project 'The adaptation of the curriculum and the educational package to the job market requirements', POSDRU/156/1.2/G/141179, with the acronym 'Adapt2jobs', developed by Spiru Haret University in partnership with SIVECO, co-financed by the European Social Fund through the Human Resources Development Sectorial Operational Program. The purpose of this project is to increase the quality and attractiveness of the educational offer of the University by creating a package of courses with a strong practical character, meant to develop the competencies asked today by the labour market, courses presented with the aid of the virtual environment offered by e-learning technologies. The results of this project include not only 7 new digitized courses, with a practical character, but also the strong and immediate impact on personal development of the students and the acquiring of additional skills. Among the major achievements of the project, is important to underline that the experience and the knowledge of the BL providers and their capacity to conceive new courses proved beneficial for the respective institutions and their students, by implementing new developments in formal education institutions and for the students, awareness raising for the management of the learning process and flexibility.
