NRDC International Conference 2007

Skills for Life Network

The NRDC International Conference 2007 will be taking place at Hayley Conference Centre, Eastwood Hall, Nottingham on the 26th and 27th April 2007.

The theme of this year’s conference is how best we can learn from research evidence, developing good and innovative practice emerging in different countries across the world. Adult literacy, numeracy and ESOL (and other second language learning) are important issues across the world, north and south. There are high aspirations for universal literacy and numeracy and access to the knowledge and skills people need to learn and practice in their lives and workplaces.

We will have speakers from across the world – Brazil, Germany, Malawi, Ireland, Scotland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland and more. There will be plenary sessions on workplace learning with evidence from home and abroad; persistence and motivation; numeracy in the USA and England; an insight into the Brazilian approach to literacy ‘Brasil Alfabetizado’ and an opportunity to hear about the key developments that the Skills for Life Strategy Unit at the DfES is initiating through their key partners.

Bursaries available for practitioners.

Places at the conference are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
