EPALE discussion: Basic skills learning provision

de EPALE Moderator

Online discussion basic skills

Ensuring basic skills for all is a necessary step to enable societies to combat current and future social, health, environmental and economic challenges, and to implement policies effectively in order to support the sustainability of European societies and economies and promote a healthier planet. 

Basic skills are transversal. Not only are they relevant to educational policy, but also to employment, health, social and environmental policies. Building cohesive policy measures which support people with basic skills needs is necessary not only to make Upskilling Pathways a success, but also to help build more resilient and inclusive societies.

The online discussion will take place on this page on 16-17 September between 10:00 and 16:00 CET and will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinators of EBSN Graciela Sbertoli (Secretary General of EBSN) and Tamás Harangozó.

The discussion on 16 and 17 September will include the following topics:

  • critical literacy
  • health literacy
  • financial literacy
  • numeracy
  • basic digital skills for the future.

Please join our online discussion on Basic skills learning provision on 16-17 September 2020!

Comments will be open on 7 September so participants can introduce themselves or post their comments in advance.

Dear all, thanks a lot for an active, rich and inspiring discussion.
Moderation will end at 16:00 CEST, but you can feel free to continue studying the postings and also commenting or adding references if you wish. We will make sure we gather all this interesting information and use it in further work within the EBSN's Capacity Building Series, which is created and presented within EPALE.
Thank you!

Yes, we do have some very interesting things to share - unfortunately most of them are in Hungarian because they are the results of different methods we experienced in different countries. The main topics are: basic skills development, skills recognition and adult learning development.

Greetings to everybody from Hungary. I represent an employment agency that is very active in studying and applying basic skills development methods with relatively good results. We are running several international projects focusing on the topic and keen on getting to know new ones. I am happy to read your profound comments and to have this opportunity to join such a great team of professionals.

Very nice to hear from you! Do you have any information about your methods which you can share with us? Even if it is in Hungarian?

Hi, I am from Latvia. I am EPALE coordinator in one of Latvia's regions. I am in charge of organizing adult education in my city. Sorry for late joining the discussion, but I was on a business trip. I will read and learn the discussion topics and views later. There are a lot of senior people in Latvia, who needs  IT basic literacy. So some entrepreneurs whose clients are senior people ( for example banks, phone companies, heating companies, etc.) understand this problem and organize free of charge IT courses for these people.

Thank you for joining in! 
Good contribution about interesting stakeholders! Yes, we need to establish cooperation with all the institutions that are interested in developing the basic skills levels of all adults.

I feel now this discussion has become an interaction among three or four of us. And I have a feeling there are silent participants (lurkers) who could contribute at least a link to an interesting practice in their country, or even a sentence in their own language.
Come on! Let us "hear" you!
