New course on apprenticeships and the recognition of prior learning
The European Training Foundation is working closely with the International Training Centre of the ILO to develop and deliver a specialised training course
The European Training Foundation is working closely with the International Training Centre of the ILO to develop and deliver a specialised training course on apprenticeships and the recognition of prior learning as building blocks of lifelong learning. The Academy on Apprenticeships and RPL will be held at the ICT-ILO in Turin on 19-23 October 2020 as part of the Centre’s Skills Development portfolio.
Apprenticeships are key pillar of skills policies in countries at all stages of economic development. They are recognised as a powerful means of linking the world of education with the world of work, increasing the relevance of vocational education and training and boosting transition to work for people of all ages. For developing countries, there is an opportunity to upgrade informal apprenticeships.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a key building block of any lifelong learning system. Countries around the world are seeking to implement to give their citizens the possibility to certify the skills developed outside of the formal education and training systems.
The Academy will provide an opportunity to reflect on how to overcome the many challenges in this journey. Sign up for the course here.
