Basic skills

The Roman Women's Colorful World Project, which was initiated by Canik Public Education Center for the Roman Women living in the region, aimed to contribute to the family economies by employing women's painters' courses in the case of disadvantaged groups.

Within the scope of the protocol realized between Continuing Education Research and Application Center of Gazi University and ASELSAN, a family training program was organized in April for the personnel of the company. The event was part of a 1-year training program which is focused on the parent and child communication and interaction. Through this program adult’s had the opportunity to improve their parenting skills and to learn more about ways to support their children.

The EBSN EPALE Team is glad to announce its first online course for policy-makers, experts and other professionals who have a stake in basic skills policy and are currently engaged in the implementation of the Upskilling Pathways recommendation. The four-week long MOOC is addressing the policy level of basic skills provision in the context the Upskilling Pathway.

The goal most teachers of adult students have is to help our students become active citizens and to help them understand the society in which they live. How we encounter students’ current knowledge of society varies in the different fields we teach and we meet our students differently according to our different target groups. Also, the ways we approach, and in a classroom setting deal with, the skills required for active citizenship, are as many as there are teachers.

Earlier this month AONTAS EU Projects Officer Deárbhail Lawless and Advocacy Lead Ben Hendriksen travelled to Bratislava, Slovakia to participate in the kickoff meeting of a new European project that AONTAS is supporting as a project partner. The project, titled BLUESS (Blueprint for Basic Skills Development in Slovakia), supports basic skills policy development in Slovakia and our participation at this event allowed us to meet project colleagues and present at a conference on the topic of basic skills provision in Ireland.

We all benefit from the opportunities provided by the Internet, and for many of us, the Internet is an indispensable tool in our training, and most importantly as a means of communication. While the time spent on the Internet can be largely spent on productivity, the use of dependent and uncontrolled Internet, especially in our own community, affects daily life, the business environment and the relationships among people.

Two years ago the pilot project for the education of adults in a primary school was held. What is the European Agenda for Adult Learning doing today? Christianne Fenech, Projects Manager at the Directorate for Lifelong Learning explains further about this.

The University-Industry Interaction Conference

A unique opportunity to share, learn and network

The University-Industry Interaction Conference is the annual conference of the University Industry Innovation Network (UIIN), through which UIIN brings more than 500 managers, practitioners and researchers in the field of entrepreneurial universities, collaborative innovation and university-industry interaction. Now in its 7th year, this conference is one of the largest conferences in this field and provides its participants with 3 days of sharing knowledge and interacting with peers. In order to best facilitate this, the conference is built around a number of key principles:

ABSTRACT The progression of a country and the integration of differences within a single aim is possible with people gaining the awareness of being a citizen. That is why citizenship training is not only a course given in the schools during formal education but also it includes lifelong learning. In this process every individual is expected to be citizen who is knowledgeable, problem solving, participating, responsible and sensitive to social problems. In the studies conducted till now, the concept of citizenship is discussed.

We recently delivered an E+ project where we sent both young and older learners to Portugal on a work placement programme.

As we were anticipating that this might be the first time some of our learners had lived away from home, we created a document titled "Independent Living Guide", which covered Planning for travel, work, etc, but also gave our participants tips on Health and Wellbeing and Personal Safety.

I think this could be improved and I would like to ask colleagues what they have used in the past to support their students?
