On 4 October the Belgian EPALE support services celebrated World Teachers' Day for the 4th time. The 2019 edition put its focus on outreach and guidance of adult learners.
After a welcome by the EPALE coordinators and a short presentation of the EPALE platform and its possibilities, Nadia Reynders from the Flemish department of Education and project coördinator of the Erasmus+ GOAL project (Guidance and Orientation of Adult Learners) presented the project and its outcomes.
Then followed a visit of the Formtruck, a truck that comes directly to meet job seekers by travelling through Brussels and in which counselors are available to answer any questions about possible training.
The Centre de Formation Tremplin has special training programmes and the staff selects and upgrades candidates for qualifying training courses.
Corinne Lamontagne and her Flemish colleague Joke Verlinden presented Euroguidance. Euroguidance is a European network of national resource and information centres for guidance in 34 European countries. Its main target group consists of guidance practitioners in education and employment, among them professionals who provide information and guidance on international learning mobility to end-users seeking studying and training opportunities abroad.
Finally all participants could visit the Brussels Cité des Métiers/Beroepenpunt, a place managed in partnership by different stakeholder organisations, open to anyone in search of information to build one’s professional future, according to principles of open access, and free of charge and anonymous use. The location proposes a documentary space, events and collective activities as well as personal advice. 'Cité des Métiers/Beroepenpunt' is part of an international network which started in 1993 in France. Now Cités des Métiers are offering their services in 9 countries.
