EBSN General Assembly and Annual Conference, 2017 “Basic Skills for Integration”

This year’s event will be organized in cooperation with the Department of Adult Education of the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth in Luxembourg as part of the national program for the implementation of the European Agenda for Adult Learning in Luxembourg.

Basic skills development has a crucial role in integration which has become a key issue in Europe due to the refugee crisis. The conference will provide an opportunity for discussions, exchange of experience and collaborative knowledge production. Basic skills professionals will learn about the basic skills development policy and practice of the host country. Participants will also be introduced to best practices of different aspects of basic skills development for integration and will discuss how EBSN can further contribute to the Upskilling Pathway initiative with special emphasis on the integration sector.
