In light of its member organisation’s efforts regarding the integration and inclusion of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in education, the ETUCE Secretariat wishes to draw member organisations’ attention to the Migrant Education Week.

Emphasising the vital role of adult education in the integration and skills development of migrants, the Electronic Platform for Adult Education (EPALE) is organising the ‘Migrant Education Week’ from 25-29 April 2016. Participants can contribute to this event by submitting educational or teaching resources, blog posts, opinions, events or news on the topic of migrant education on the EPALE website. EPALE also offers participants the opportunity to join an online discussion wherein experiences, ideas and good practices of migrant education in Europe can be exchanged. Points of interest on the agenda concern:

  • 26 April: Experiences from delivering adult education to different migrant communities in your country
  • 27 April: Challenges and barriers for migrants to access and complete adult education
  • 28 April: Solutions to support learners with a migrant background access and successfully complete adult learning programmes
  • 29 April: A summary of the three previous discussions will be published on the EPALE website.
