Informal learning is never organised nor institutionalised in terms of objectives, time or learning support. From a learner standpoint, it is never intentional. It is often referred to as learning by experience or just as experience. It results from daily life activities related to work, family or leisure.

NEW – LLLP Position paper – 21st century learning environments

On October 18th, during the closing remarks of the European VVocational Skills Week, the Lifelong Learning Platform releases one of its greatest efforts: the 2019 position paper on 21st century learning environments.

Learning can happen anytime, anywhere, and the spaces where this learning occurs are incredibly and increasingly diverse. Education systems are undergoing a paradigm shift in the struggle to meet the needs of learners in a world that is rapidly changing from a technological, demographic, societal and environmental perspective. The rich diversity of learning environments, whether within the formal education system or beyond in the local community, workplace or civil society, is more valuable than ever to meet these rapidly evolving needs. Learning takes place across a combination of these environments, and this prompts the LLLPlatform to address the above-mentioned changes in a comprehensive and decisive position paper that we hope will inform decision-making in the coming years.

Participate in our survey! Help us to better support young volunteers!

what-are-employability-skills-pageEUCIS-LLL is a partner of the “GR-EAT” project that aims to support young volunteers having their voluntary experience better recognised by employers. EUCIS-LLL is carrying out research among HR staff and those responsible for recruitment in all types of organisations (public, private and non-for-profit) to find out about their needs and expectations regarding the recognition of non-formal and informal learning taking place within youth organisations. The questionnaire should only take you 10 minutes and is open until 30 April. The final project outcome will be to develop guidelines for youth organisations and produce policy recommendations to improve the recognition of volunteering. We count on you to answer the survey and share it with the employers you know!
