TANDEM – Dialogue session on good practices and recommendations for flexible learning pathways

TANDEM – Dialogue session on good practices and recommendations for flexible learning pathways

The TANDEM project focuses on identifying and promoting flexible pathways for workers, from European Qualifications Framework (EQF) level 4 to level 5 (and in some cases level 6).

But the flexibility should be made possible with the support of the companies, having in mind the interest of both, employee and employer, in acquiring skills and competences at a higher level.

The Dialogue will bring together key-stakeholders (Vocational Education and Training, Higher Education and labour market representatives) eager to share best practices, main findings and recommendations for education policies’ reforms.

The event will be held in the Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU (Rue Montoyer, 21), in Brussels, on Wednesday 19th of April 2017, from 14h00 to 16h30.
