EBSN Professional Development Series for Basic Skills Teachers

Working together for basic skills trainers and teachers

Apr 18, 2022


The EBSN PDS target group is teachers, adult educators, basic skills trainers and tutors, while the indirect target group is identical to the target group of the Upskilling Pathways recommendation i.e. adults (aged 25-64) not eligible for the Youth Guarantee who have needs for basic skills training for ensuring or entering a position at the labour market. This is directly in line with the recommendation on Upskilling Pathways namely „support the initial training and continuous professional development of staff engaged in the delivery of upskilling pathways, in particular teaching professionals”.

The project proposes an innovative training opportunity for training professionals. Thus, the focus is on training teachers to become fully able to address the challenges described above. In doing so the consortium draws on other projects’ insights and experiences (e.g. Profi-Train) in specific fields of basic skills provision (e.g. Profi-Train: Professionalization of Trainers for Work Based Basic Skills). The training format of the EBSN Professional Development Series (OER based MOOCs) makes it possible for trainers to easier access and attend the MOOCs even from remote areas and deal with challenges that affect their target group.
