The Adult Skills Conference is taking place on 6-7 December! This is a great opportunity to see good policies and practices for promoting better opportunities for low-skilled adults, such as skills assessment, a tailored learning offer, validation and recognition of skills.

In case you can’t make it to the Adult Skills Conference, EPALE has got you covered! All you need to do is visit this page on 6 and 7 December and you can watch livestreamed sessions from the event. Together with our partners from the European Basic Skills Network we will be at the event providing live coverage, session summaries and other exclusive content on EPALE.

    Good idea to have this live streaming. I already heard from a few stakeholders who wanted to join the conference that they either couldn't make it or either couldn't join because they didn't have an invitation.

    Here's a few of the Flemish Community stakeholders of which I'm sure they will be present (and thus perhaps also available for a quote on EPALE):


    • Mrs. Nathalie Druine (Ministry of Education and Training – RPL)
    • Mrs. Lieselotte Bommerez (Ministry of Employment)
    • Mrs. Elien Gillaerts (Ministry of Culture, Youth, Sports and Media)
    • Mr. Wouter Kerkhove (PES)
    • Ms Liesbet Vermandere (national coordinator adult learning, Ministry of Education and Training)
