Basic Skills and Family Learning: online discussion

The European Basic Skills Network (EBSN) Community of Practice on Basic Skills and Family Learning is being launched as an EPALE online event on the 9th and 10th of November.

On Thursday 9th and Friday 10th November the European Basic Skills Network (EBSN) will be hosting an online discussion about Family Learning on EPALE. We will discuss purposes, models and good practice and would like to hear from anyone who has been involved in family learning related to basic skills or is interested in developing expertise in this area. 

If you would like to contribute to the discussion, or if you just want to learn from the experiences of colleagues in other European countries please join us to discuss purposes, models and good practice in family learning related to basic skills. We hope to engage participants from all countries involved in Epale.

We will begin at 10.00 (CET) on Wednesday 9th November and the discussion will continue until 16.00 (CET) on Thursday the 10th

To join the discussion please subscribe to the Community of Practice. Click on 'Subscribe to group' below the EBSN forum - Basic Skills and Family Learning. If you have any question or need any assistance please e-mail to

The discussion will be moderated by Christine Clement from CINOP (Centre for Innovation of Education) in the Netherlands. She introduces the topics for discussion in the video below:



What is EBSN?

The European Basic Skills Network (EBSN) is a European association gathering policy makers and policy providers engaged in basic skills training for adults.

It aims at promoting excellence in policy design and policy implementation, at European, national and regional level, in a field that has considerable impact on education, employment, social inclusion, the fight against poverty, and sustainable economic growth. Read more about the EBSN

The EBSN Special Interest Groups, SIGs

The EBSN SIGs are thematic interest groups aiming to provide information, create joint knowledge and promote development on a policy level.

Each EBSN SIG has two main objectives:

  • generate discussion and exchange of experience among the SIG members;
  • contribute to the preparation of online courses within their specific theme.

Participation in EBSN SIGs is open only to EBSN members. Read more about the EBSN SIGs

The EBSN Communities of Practice

For each of the EBSN SIGs, which are open only for EBSN members, the network will initiate an open discussion within the EPALE Communities of Practice. The EBSN SIG leaders will ensure the flow of important input from the Communities of Practice to the SIG discussions and vice versa.
