The fifth thematic EPALE meeting on 20 September 2017 was the occasion of a series of discussions and reflections on the quality of training. During the meeting three different themes of work were proposed:
- good practices between providers and trainers
- qualifications, references and business practices
- research and innovation in training to support good practices
This thematic EPALE meeting on the Quality of Training was an excellent opportunity for discussions, sharing experiences and building networks, and the workshops helped to make the day a time for consideration and for identifying issues and avenues to improve quality in all its dimensions. See all the discussions and comments made by participants in the blog here.
