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.

The existing training programmes meet the needs of many professional activities. Through all its branches, vocational training usually provides knowledge and skills that qualify the trainees to perform a professional activity from start to end. It also introduces the keys to educational reorientation, which allows them to reorient their careers and boost their working opportunities. But, what would happen if we focussed on a professional sector that is not even acknowledged as such?

Three years ago a project started. Four countries' teachers and their adult trainees participated in this. First meeting was held in Finland, the second one in Spain, the third one in Greece and the last and most striking, amazing one was in Turkey. It was beyond a project. It was like a festival, flag-day or feast. It was a merge of people from different countries. It was the construction, establishment of friendships.
