Programa Pestalozzi: "Competencias para una cultura democrática"


Los acontecimientos de los últimos años han puesto la democracia, los valores y principios de los derechos humanos y la dignidad en el centro de muchas reflexiones.

La gente expresa y experimenta frustración e insatisfacción, falta de solidaridad… La pérdida de confianza en la política, en los políticos y en los medios de comunicación no ayuda a entender la democracia como una forma de convivencia y de organización de la vida en común, más que un mero servicio.

AELP National Conference 2017

Sponsored by NCFE, the AELP National Conference 2017 takes place less than two months after the start of the Apprenticeship levy. Delegates will hear from the government, employers and providers how the reforms are bedding in, in respect of both funding and standards. Apprenticeships will be the hot topic but the scale of reform throughout the employment and skills sector is so large that other important issues will be debated too. Growing Traineeships will be one while maximising the education and employment opportunities from the prison reform white paper will be another.
