We are glad to announce that EBSN is organising its first online conference from 2 to 4 November! Join the online event by filling out a registration form. You can find the link to registration and the full conference program here.

EBSN has been active in supporting the formation of European adult education policy, especially with regards to the European Council’s recommendation on Upskilling Pathways. Our Capacity Building Series (CBS) consists of units on EPALE presenting a collection of open educational resources (OER) and three online learning courses that have been designed to support European policy-makers and other stakeholders involved in the implementation of the European Commission’s Upskilling Pathways recommendation. Basic skills are a core element in Upskilling Pathways. EBSN wishes to support the successful implementation of the recommendation by contributing to raising the level of knowledge of all stakeholders in EU Member States. The main target group are policy-makers in the adult learning sector at local, regional and national level, as well as those working in European institutions that are active in the field.
