UNESCO UNEVOC

Delegates listen to a keynote speaker

On 23 October 2019, EPALE UK and the Learning & Work Institute (European Agenda for Adult Learning) held a joint conference in London. I attended the workshop which presented the experience of Belfast in becoming a UNESCO Learning City with a specific focus on tackling inequalities, especially around health and wellbeing. Core to the work and future development is connectivity – linking globally, locally and across sectors/disciplines. This point was taken up by the second speaker who looked at the development needs of the adult learning workforce and how these should be linked to those of related disciplines.

According to Dave Hagendyk from L&W Cymru ‘a Personal Learning Account could make a big difference to you!’

For learners aged over 19 who are in employment but earning under £26,000 a year, a Personal Learning Account is a great way to gain a higher level of skills or switch careers by accessing part-time study on specific courses.

Currently being piloted in two colleges in Wales, it is hoped that it will become available in a wider range of sectors and geographical areas.

Since October 2018, POUR LA SOLIDARITE-PLS and the Erasmus+ european project partners of Training 4 Sustainable Food Systems Development - T4F work together to create a formation which aims to develop and/or reinforce the sustainable competencies with (future) workers of the food industry sectors. 

A flexible, practical and complete formation 

Did you know that the number of veterinary doctors is increasing across Europe? Do you know how many veterinary doctors practice and what is veterinary education in the subject of communication with the client? To what extent the subject of communication with a client is covered by the obligatory study education for veterinary doctors?

On the basis of the Carer+ Digital Competence Framework, a complete programme structure was developed, containing a total of 5 interrelated modules organised under 3 themes:

  • Foundational skills
  • Managing social care with ITCs
  • Providing home care through ICTs.

The Virtual Learning Environement was created by using Drupal Commons and Moodle 2.5: 5 platforms were created: an original one in English and 4 for the piloting partners in their local languages (France, Italy, Latvia, Romania and Spain).

In the framework of the project Erasmus+ PRODOME, the study "The state of the art of domestic work in Europe" (deliverable 1) has been produced, based on desk and field research involving 54 experts and 109 domestic housekeepers via semi-directive interviews, a Delphi exercise and questionnaires.

The main findings are the following ones:

The information about economically active population, employment and unemployment are the basic statistical data that are indispensable for monitoring the changes on the labour market.
The State Statistical Office has conducted activities for building the information system about the labour market as a prerequisite for its systematic analysis and evaluation. To this end, the Labour Force Survey has been conducted since 1996. 

The course is designed to help prospective female staff cope with the hardships they are likely to encounter in seagoing services and maritime jobs and make them realize themselves to the full extent. To this end, leadership and intercommunication skills female cadets may need in their prospective jobs are planned to be given in the course. Current practices in maritime will be discussed in view of diversity and gender management skills. On completion of the course; the learner/trainee will have the competence to cope with the problems deriving from diversity in addition to gender and cultural differences and have relevant skills to effectively carry out the duties of maritime.

I was interested to explore the challenges language will pose when teaching adults technical fashion production skills in my recent project titled "Fashion ABC".

The project's main theme was focused on equipping VET learners studying Fashion with skills to improve their work experience. However, we were able to develop staff skills through a combination of job shadowing, training staff engaging in the delivery of training etc.

This gave us an opportunity to teach older learners including some who were project partners staff new skills.
