EPALE UK and L&WI (EAAL) Annual Conference 2019 presentations

Following the EPALE UK and L&WI (EAAL) Annual Conference 2019, we are now publishing the workshop and plenary session presentations in pdf format for users and delegates to enjoy. The presentations focus on individual nations as well as the UK as a whole, with workshops considering impications for policy and practice.  

On 23 October 2019, EPALE UK and the Learning & Work Institute held the joint Upskilling pathways: implications for the adult learning workforce annual conference at Prospero House in London. The conference explored the findings of Learning & Work’s report on the adult learning workforce and how the sector can be better supported to support learners and the UK economy, giving special focus to the ‘thinkpieces’ within the report and driving further contribution from the authors that wrote them. Many of the authors held workshops on policy and practice, engaging delegates in lively discussions on a range of topics. Focus is given to the UK as a whole, as well as each individual nation.

 

The presentations from the plenary and panel sessions and the workshops can be found below.
