From 5 to 9 December Europe is celebrating the first European Vocational Skills Week! Hundreds of regional and national activities around Europe will showcase excellence in vocational education and training. One of the highlights of the Vocational Skills Week is the Adult Skills Conference (6-7 December) – one of the biggest adult education events in Europe!

If you can’t make it to the Adult Skills Conference, make sure to visit EPALE on 6-7 December to watch the livestreamed opening, and read session summaries and other exclusive content live from the event.

Here at EPALE we appreciate the benefits of vocational education and training (VET). VET helps lower unemployment and crime rates, it gives learners more opportunities to advance professionally, it improves employees’ productivity, companies’ performance, as well as learners’ life satisfaction, health and social inclusion.

EPALE’s national teams have worked hard to collect interesting blog posts, case studies and useful resources on VET:

    W nawiązaniu do powyższego pomysłu proponuję rozwinięcie inicjatywy o dalsze materiały, w tym polskojęzyczne.

    Zachęcając do włączenia się i dalszych wpisów, zapraszam do lektury dwóch tekstów z bezpłatnych zasobów Harvard Business Review Polska:

    1. Amy Gallo, Jak opanować nową umiejętność,;

    2. Eriki Andersen, Jak zdecydować, którą z umiejętności rozwijać,

    Oba artykuły są natury poradnikowej i dotyczą podstaw tematyki umiejętności zawodowych, zgodnie z założeniem że przy zdobywaniu nowych umiejętności warto stosować metodę małych kroków oraz "zasadę jeża", sformułowaną przez Jima Collinsa w książce „Od dobrego do wielkiego”.
