During the evolution of the project, we have held several conferences, workshops and seminars which have served to share experiences and findings, as well as to report on the state of development of the project, the progress of the progress of the teams and the mechanisms of experimentation in the pilot areas.
Workshop on innovative experiences
After the initial phased of the project focused on studying different existing experiences in basic skills training for adults, a meeting was organised with the participation of more than 90 people with very different profiles, including among others: regional employment services, social intervention professionals, researchers, representatives of EU agencies, and teacher trainers. In this conference we were able to deepen the experience of training and certification of digital skills promoted by ICDL Europe. And also, about the Spanish Red Cross’ multidimensional approach to guidance, training and employment of low-skilled people.
Together we reflected on the most successful elements to make an effective initial skills assessment, and also on effective methodologies to carry out an adequate learning strategy. You can read in detail the ideas and reflections we shared in the summary above.
Workshop on initial skills assessment and learning strategies
This second workshop is carried out in the framework of the first phase of the project which focuses on the design of the experimentation. The aim is, in one hand, to learn and share the results of the project's piloting on the initial assessment of skills and, on the other hand, to present the proposals for innovative training strategies to be tested with the experimental group.
Taller de debate sobre un documento de propuestas de políticas para un plan de mejora de competencias en Navarra
After two years of implementation, the FORLAN project was in its final phase of development and ended in December 2022. Throughout this period, an innovative model of training in basic skills has been implemented, aimed at facilitating the access and continuity of adults in vulnerable situations. To this end, a package of solutions has been designed in the different stages of the training process and, especially, in the learning methodology. The objectives of this workshop are:
- To share the main lessons drawn from the development of the project.
- To reflect, and debate on the opportunities for improving basic skills training for adults in Navarre.
Debate workshop around a report on the transfer of the lessons drawn into national and other regions' policies
In this workshop, closing the FORLAN project, we want to share the experience we have had, and the gained insights. This experience has allowed us to learn about the suitability of these elements so that the coverage of basic skills training for adults is broadened. Many of the lessons learned may also be applicable to other adult education policies.
