Outreach and guidance


Efter vores marts-fokus på lighed og inklusion vil vi hos EPALE i april have fokus på opsøgende arbejde og vejledning. Vores mål er at indsamle og fremvise nogle gode eksempler på opsøgende politikker, projekter og initiativer til at udvide deltagelsen i voksenuddannelse. At være i stand til at nå ud til dårligt stillede eller underrepræsenterede grupper er imidlertid ikke nok for at sikre deltagelse. Disse potentielle voksenelever har brug for at få den rigtige vejledning, der kan hjælpe dem med at tage del i livslang læring og opnå de optimale resultater i processen.

Dette er grunden til, at EPALE for nylig har oprettet en tematisk side om emnet. Den er stadig ny, men vi håber, at vi med din hjælp kan samle interessante artikler, nyttige ressourcer og inspirerende casestudier om opsøgende arbejde og vejledning. Hvis du vil dele din historie, dine resultater eller ressourcer skal du blot logge ind på din konto (tilmelding er gratis), besøge den tematiske side Opsøgende arbejde og vejledning, og trykke på 'Opret indhold'. Alternativt kan du kontakte dit nationale EPALE-team for at få hjælp.

    Financial situation can become a barrier for seeking further education, not only that the fee for the educational provision can be high but also because people need time for attending educational courses and training sessions. To enable adult learners within the public workforce to seek new knowledge and skills, the first educational funds were established almost 40 years ago as a result of collective labour market bargaining and agreements between the Icelandic state on the employer’s side and unions representing public employees. The funds were meant to enable adult learners within the public workforce to attend different vocational educational offers regardless of their own financial situation. Later on, more and more of the collective agreements include terms on the right of the employee to ask for paid educational leave.

    Fraedslusetrið Starfsmennt, the Educational Training Centre for Public Employees, is a result of this growing, mutual understanding of the importance of supporting employees in search of enhanced skills. It was established in year 2001 as a result of collective labour market bargaining and agreement between the State (Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs) on the employer’s side and the majority of unions within the Federation of State and Municipal employees (BSRB) representing the public employees. It is a collaborative forum for continuous vocational training and education (CVT) within the public sector. The main goal of Starfsmennt's operation is twofold and reflects the dimension of the ownership, i.e. to assist staff,  managers and institutions to meet the fast growing demands of societal/work related changes and diversities. Starfsmennt aims to update and enhance work related education for the target group, being staff in state institutions whose educational level is lower than university degree.

    Starfsmennt offers life-long-learning and continuous vocational training courses in work related subjects for the target group which is based on curriculums  and designed within steering groups where managers and staff work together. They vary from approx. 20 hours – 240 hours and can be changed and updated according to current or future needs in the work place. To make it possible for adult learners within the public workforce to attend educational courses regardless of their residency, the Centre offers courses outside of the capital area and some of the educational offers are accessible online. In addition the Centre offers travel grants to their members, who need to travel far for attending vocation courses. On annual basis approx. 3.500 learners, that are members of unions within the Federation of State and Municipal employees, participate in the learning offers provided by the Centre without having to make any financial arrangement and this action is a part of reaching out to a wider group of adult learners within the public workforce.

    Da molti anni opero nel campo dell'educazione degli adulti e ciò che lamento in Italia è il mancato riconoscimento delle competenze acquisite nell'ambito dell'educazione non formale. L'istruzione non formale mette al centro dell'azione educativa la persona , mentre quella formale ancora punta sui contenuti. Un adulto, nel momento in cui decide di partecipare a dei percorsi educativi, chiede di soddisfare un bisogno e l'educatore deve essere in grado di capire le diverse esigenze,di adeguare il suo comportamento, di creare un ambiente di apprendimento facilitatore, di trasmettere fiducia. Solo così si potranno ottenere dei risultati positivi. Ecco allora che anche gli educatori che operano nel campo dell'educazione degli adulti devono seguire dei percorsi di formazione e le competenze acquisite vanno riconosciute. In questo campo esistono delle sperimentazioni che andrebbero amplificate e portate ad esempio ai decisori politici.
