Upskilling pathways – how to go from practice to policy?

The upcoming series of five webinars will inspire participants with new approaches for assessing skills, tailoring courses to learners’ needs and validating prior learning.

Upskilling Pathways is a European strategy aimed at strengthening learning provision for adults with low basic skills. The webinars are connected to the three steps of the Upskilling Pathways (UP) initiative:  1) Skills assessment, 2) Tailor-made learning offer and 3) Validation and recognition of skills.

The webinars will evaluate how the UP initiative is implemented in the UP-AEPRO-partner countries (Belgium, Finland, Iceland, Portugal, Sweden and the UK), and participants are invited to share their experiences in their own work context (country, organisation, project, daily work etc).

Who should attend?

The webinars are targeted at adult educators, course providers and policy makers who would like to deepen their understanding of the UP initiative and get inspired by good practises in teaching basic skills.
