Seminar 'the tailor-made approach': Lifelong Learning stays relevant

On June 7, Learning Shop (De Leerwinkel) West-Flanders organised a seminar for local stakeholders in the province of West-Flanders. The seminar provided a complete view of the activities of the Learning Shop, with a focus on the realisations under the GOAL project.

The seminar was a mix of plenary presentations and workshops. Jeroen Backs, head of the section Strategic Policy Support from the Ministry of Education, focused on the importance of Lifelong Learning and guidance in European perspective. To many participants his presentation was an eye-opener on the urgency for Flemish policy makers to prioritise Lifelong Learning and Adult Guidance in Flemish education policy.

Different aspects of educational guidance were explored in 5 workshops: clients, guidance and learning pathways, educational landscape, tools and recognizing talents and competences.
