The session will also reflect on what lies ahead. Looking at “Outreach and Access in Times of Crisis and Beyond.” Professor Ellen Boeren, a researcher in adult learning participation, will speak alongside others from several adult learning professionals who will share their hands-on experience in outreach and access during a series of interactive workshops. The session will discuss digital exclusion, online and hybrid learning festivals, support for self-isolating learners, and more. The programme of the first conference day is presented below.

20 November: Upskilling Pathways as an opportunity to improve outreach and access. From EU policies to learners.

On the second day, the conference will look at the European Commission’s Upskilling Pathways as an opportunity to improve outreach and access, and will discuss how and why to engage to make the initiative a reality. It will give you a chance to hear learners’ voices, discuss the challenges with other trainers, learn about different advocacy tools and contribute to the UP-AEPRO policy recommendations. The event will also be an occasion for the Portuguese adult education sector to gather and discuss successful initiatives on an inclusive and empowering basic skills provision.
