E.QU.A.L. at “Developing coherent approaches to upskilling pathways for low-skilled adults” 7th Cedefop Brussels Seminar

CEDEFOP and the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU organize the Seminar “Developing coherent approaches to upskilling pathways for low-skilled adults” in Brussels on 25th June. This seminar aims to share evidence on the extent and heterogeneity of low skills among adults, and to stimulate the debate on coordinated and strategic approaches to developing upskilling pathways for low-skilled adults.

Drawing on Cedefop’s latest research on the potential of WBL in developing upskilling pathways for adults, participants will discuss:

  • latest evidence on the extent of the low-skilled adult population, as well as target groups most in need of upskilling;
  • how to develop strategic, coherent and coordinated approaches to pave the way for developing upskilling pathways grounded in lifelong learning and with the individual at heart, and built around the idea of easily accessible pathways based on the three steps described in the Recommendation on upskilling pathways: new opportunity for adults.

E.QU.A.L. project and first its results will be presented by Claudio Vitali (Inapp) during a Round Table also involving speeches from Lidia Salvatore and Irene Psifidou (Cedefop) and Ana Rădulescu (Ministry of Labour, Romania)
