The European Basic Skills Network is announcing an online discussion on language training programs for adults in the framework of the network's Capacity Building Series. The discussion is scheduled to start on 2 April, 2019 9:00 (CET) and be finalised on 3 April, 2019 17:00 (CET) and its results will contribute to the EBSN's forthcoming open education resource (OER) in the theme of migrant education.
During the discussion, participants are encouraged to share their views and experiences by answering the following questions:
- Does your country have national systems for the language training and certification of immigrants? Are there specific linguistic requirements linked to residence permits and/or acquisition of nationality? How is the training organized? Who are the providers? How is it financed?
- How is the quality of the training ensured? How is teacher training organized? What is the role of volunteers, if any?
- Are there general methodological guidelines available to the providers? To what extent are digital tools used in the training provision?
- Are literacy and linguistic training identified as two separate issues? How is the linguistic training of adults with very low levels of literacy organized?
