In such uncertain political times, now more than ever, it is critically important that disabled people are centre stage in all discussions relating to their rights as citizens. All policies and strategic mechanisms arising from them, which may affect or potentially impact on disabled people, should at all times be coproduced with disabled people. With this in mind, it is crucial, whilst working in the field of disability and employment that we regularly stop, reflect and review upon our practice.

Richard Thickpenny, Business Development Manager at Ashley Community Housing, shares his presentation ‘#Rethinking refugee in FE’ from the FE Week Festival of Skills (22 – 23 June).

How might we know whether our schools or system are set up to optimise learning? How can we find out whether we are getting the most from technology? How can we evaluate our innovation or think through whether our change initiative will bring about its desired results? Teachers and educational leaders who grapple with such questions will find this handbook an invaluable resource. It draws on extensive reports and materials compiled over a decade by the OECD in its Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) project. Its four chapters – The learning principles; The innovative learning environment framework; Learning leadership and evaluative thinking; and Transformation and change - each contain a concise, non-technical overview introduction followed by a set of tools. The handbook makes good the ILE ambition not just to analyse change but to offer practical help to those around the world determined to innovate their schools and systems.
From April 24th to April 28th 2017 the Flemish Support Center for Adult Education (Vocvo) hosted the international training week ‘Education behind Belgian bars’ for teachers, education coordinators and others interested in the theme. Nineteen people from 6 countries (Norway, Georgia, France, Spain, Greece and Belgium) participated in the training week. The training gave them an idea of how prison education is organized in Flanders and Brussels. They were introduced in practice and policy of the Flemish prison education system. The participants shared how prison education was organised in their countries. In this EPALE e-zine you find out about the activities during this week, but you can also find other interesting content about prison eduation in Europe in EPALE's database.
