Epale

The digital forum where we can meet and promote basic skills

EPALE-01EPALE is a web platform funded by the European Commission and intended to become the “ultimate one stop shop” in the field of adult learning for teachers, trainers and volunteers, as well as policy-makers, researchers and academics throughout Europe.

EBSN was invited to take a major role as a consortium partner in developing and delivering relevant content to the website and in facilitating the involvement of users in professional discussions as well as in sharing of information and resources relevant in the field of basic skills. EBSN is represented in the Editorial Board of EPALE, takes part in meetings with the Executive Agency, responsible for the thematic coordination of “life skills” which includes systematic collection of information, studies, best practices in the theme, presentation of news and events, publishing articles etc. Coordination of EBSN activities and contribution is being taken care of by the EBSN Secretariat, but the EBSN’s contribution heavily depends on the information, resources and expertise available in the network.

Taking part in the building of the EPALE platform provides a unique opportunity for EBSN to increase general awareness and to contribute to putting and maintaining basic skills on the top of the European agenda and discussions when it comes to Adult Education and Learning, both at national and at European level, since the platform users will come from as many as 37 countries.
