Cedefop and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) are organising on 5 and 6 November 2020 in Brussels, the third Policy Learning Forum on upskilling pathways: a vision for the future.

Policy Learning Fora (PLF) on upskilling pathways are a series of policy learning events on the topic aimed at providing a platform for countries to come together to learn from one another and explore common challenges in upskilling adults with low level of skills.

Upskilling pathways is about pulling together resources and creating the right synergies for supporting every (low skilled) adult towards an individual path to empowerment. It is about creating a comprehensive approach to the upskilling and reskilling of the low skilled adult population. This approach should be able to address their needs in a coordinated and coherent way and ensure that they have all the tools and support to embark on sustainable learning pathways leading to their full potential and fulfillment.

The Cedefop analytical framework presented and discussed at the second Policy Learning Forum on upskilling pathways has been developed to sustain this unique vision of upskilling pathways for low-skilled adults. Aim of the third Policy Learning Forum on upskilling pathways: a vision for the future, is to progress further with support to the implementation of upskilling pathways and to translate the analytical framework into practice.
