Laatste discussies

EPALE Discussie: Wat kunnen we doen om de volwasseneneducatie beter te maken voor mensen met een beperking?

In juni richt EPALE de schijnwerpers op hoe mensen met een beperking kunnen bijleren. We horen graag van jou hoe we volwasseneneducatie voor mensen met een beperking kunnen verbeteren. De schriftelijke discussie (in het Engels) zal plaatsvinden op 8 juni om 14 uur (CEST).

Vindt u het ook jammer dat de volwasseneneducatie nauwelijks bijdraagt aan het nieuwe decreet voor duaal leren?
