TENCompetence Open Workshop: Manchester, UK, November 19th and 20th

This workshop "Rethinking Learning and Employment at a time of economic uncertainty" focusses on the work of the TenCompetence project which for the past four years has been developing an infrastructure for lifelong learning in Europe. There will be keynotes from Rob Koper and Oleg Liber as well as research papers, and practical workshops.

The pace of social, technical and economic change in a global environment requires increasing adaptability and flexibility in businesses and organisations. Especially for the people who work in them, and the systems which support them. This need has been intensified by the current economic crisis.

During the last four years the TENCompetence project has addressed these challenges by developing an infrastructure for lifelong learning in Europe. The project would now like to invite you to the open workshop Rethinking Learning and Employment at a time of economic uncertainty (19th - 20th November) in Manchester to celebrate and share the achievements of the project, and to explore the future application and development of the systems approaches and research which have been produced.

The workshop will offer keynotes by Rob Koper and Oleg Liber, research paper sessions, practical workshops focused around the project's contributions, and round tables. The workshop will host a one day meeting of the CETIS Learning Design Special Interest Group as a parallel strand which participants are welcome to attend.

The workshop is co-located with the annual conference and exhibition of the CIPD, giving workshop participants the opportunity to visit the largest HR exhibition in the UK. The exhibition is free to enter, while the conference requires a registration fee.

Location

The TENCompetence Workshop will take place in the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Manchester (formerly the historic Manchester Free Trade Hall).

Registration
