The European Basic Skills Network, EBSN, is a non-profit association gathering policy makers and policy providers engaged in basic skills training for adults. EBSN was officially launched in June 2010. We aim at promoting excellence in policy design and policy implementation in a field that has considerable impact on education, employment, social inclusion, the fight against poverty, and sustainable economic growth.
Vision and objectives
The EBSN’s vision is to make sure that all inhabitants of Europe have the level of basic skills they need to have access to lifelong learning, ensure their employability and be active citizens. Our network’s members will contribute to better policy and practice for the enhancement of basic skills in the European population by
International project activity
EBSN does not participate as a member in European projects, but the network’s members do. One of our current projects, “Specialization for European Teachers of Basic Skills for Adults – SEA”, is a Learning Partnership initiated within the Grundtvig / LLP programme that brings together European researchers, teacher training institutions and education providers of basic skills instruction to adults.
