Immigrants

 

From the 31st May through the 2nd June 2017, Luxembourg hosted the General Assembly and Annual Conference of the European Basic Skills Network (EBSN http://www.basicskills.eu). More than 100 experts from 20 European countries participated at this event.

Definition of Basic Skills

Education at all levels is a key part of the integration process for migrants. Adult learning is crucial for migrants as they may require different skills from those that they used in their countries of origin for their new careers. It can also help equip people working with migrants with intercultural awareness and competences, easing the integration process for everyone involved.

Please fill in the survey on alternative assessment methods for validation in Europe to address the needs of learners with special focus on disadvantaged groups such as migrants, long-term unemployed, and those who have had an adverse experience with formal education including with school-based assessments.

Diversity Management training course aims to improve the pedagogical competences related with the diversity management of adult educators, contributing to the standardization and quality of vocational training to adult educators. Also an objective is to promote a better understanding of diversity, and making use of it to obtain better results to everybody.

Talk with the newly arrived persons, not about them. This was one of the key ideas behind a so-called “to do seminar” organised in Gotland in April.

The Swedish island of Gotland is located in the Baltic Sea about 100 kilometres from the Swedish mainland. It is a place that many people end up leaving, which leads to a shortage of labour and of new ideas. Meanwhile, people with all kinds of competencies are fleeing to Sweden.
