MASTER – Measures for Adults to Support Transition to further Education and Re-skilling opportunities
“Empowering low-skilled people by means of promoting their upskilling and/or re-skilling is associated with large social and economic benefits not only for individuals, but also for the economy and society as a whole. Research suggests that being low-skilled is often associated with a set of negative consequences both at the individual and social level, such as lower earnings and employment rates, lower quality of health, wellbeing and life satisfaction, lower civic and social engagement and higher probability of involvement in criminal activities” (Background Paper, PLF on Upskilling Pathways, Brussels – 7-8/02/2018).
In this scenario, MASTER is working to improve the capacity of Adult Education providers to reach out to adults, through multi-stakeholder strategies and better tailored training opportunities, by facilitating the participation of low-skilled adults in training and in the labour market, by developing their self-assessment skills and their personal, social and learning competence [PSL].
The main project activities are:
- Development and implementation of an outreach strategy addressed to low-skilled adults.
- Elaboration of a MASTER self-assessment toolkit, a set of practices and tools to carry out the self-identification and self-assessment of low skilled individuals’ learning outcomes acquired through non-formal and informal learning.
- Planning and experimentation of a bridge programme of personalised learning activities to prepare low-skilled adults for formal educational paths and for the labour market (MASTER Plan).
