from our experience that change in our professional life is more of the rule rather than the exception. We need to adjust ourselves to many new demands in our personal and professional life: new life tasks like caring for others, new job tasks, unexpected changes like job loss or wanted ones like getting that job that we want very much.

Naomi Clayton delivers her part of the workshop

At the Upskilling Pathways conference, I was lucky to attend a morning workshop delivered by Naomi Clayton and Lubomira Chirmiciu, which explored devolution to the city-regions. Focus was given to the different approaches that have been used in the regions, as well as a succinct commitment to providing better support for adult learning activities.

At the EPALE UK and Learning and Work Institute joint conference, I was lucky enough to attend a highly engaging and informative workshop delivered by Cerian Ayres, with input from James Maltby.

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.

The education sector, and in particular adult learning, plays a central role in the social and economic integration of migrants. For some time now, the migration-related changes in our societies have also been leading to changes in adult learning institutions themselves. In order to develop effective learning strategies for learners with migration experience, it is essential that migrants and/or their representatives and organisations are actively involved in the development of adult learning programmes in the medium- and long-term.

It should empower people so that they are in a position to exercise their rights and help shape the way in which society progresses.

 

Tinkering creates a bridging point between a learner’s personal interests and experiences and a broad range of possible learning outcomes. It offers valuable opportunities to engage all students in STEM and fosters a more inclusive STEM education. In this way, it is very much aligned with a Science Capital Teaching Approach: fundamentally, it is a highly personalised pedagogy, which allows the learner to follow their own interests and set their own goals.
