EPALE, which stands for electronic platform for adult learning in Europe, is a European multilingual open membership community of adult learning professionals including adult educators and trainers, guidance and support staff, researchers and academics and policymakers. EPALE is funded by Erasmus+ programme. It is part of the European Union’s strategy to promote more and better learning opportunities for all adults.
In the context of the European Year of Skills 2023, EPALE aims to highlight the potential of all adult learning and education to engage citizens in society and democracy, empower people to successfully navigate labour market changes and include everyone in learning.
Fidem founder Sabine Agius Cabourdin said: “We are thrilled to have won this award. For us this is recognition at the highest level of the hard work, effort and dedication that the Fidem team has put into creating this programme for adult women. Through Skill Up we are empowering women by giving them a life-changing opportunity to improve their education which would hopefully help them in seeking better employment. The first 12-month long course is now under way and the participants are working hard in their studies learning new life skills.”
“We wish to thank all the teachers, assistants, carers and support staff who are making Skill Up possible.”
Skill Up was created with the generous support of Atlas Insurance Community Involvement Fund. The course will lead to MQF Level 3 Certificate.
