A new Cedefop publication presents the analytical framework for developing upskilling pathways for low-skilled adults. The framework aims to support policy-makers and stakeholders in designing and implementing flexible and inclusive upskilling pathways.

This report is the second volume of Cedefop research on empowering adults through upskilling and reskilling pathways. You can also read/download the first volume on adult population with potential for upskilling and reskilling.

The framework is built around important systemic features needed for a coherent and coordinated approach to upskilling. It is grounded in a lifelong learning perspective and focused on the empowerment of the individual learner/beneficiary.

The next step will be to apply the analytical framework in a selection of countries who agree to participate in thematic country reviews specifically focused on its subject. There will be further follow-up during the forthcoming ‘Third policy learning forum on upskilling pathways: a new vision for the future’ in November 2020.

Stakeholders will have an opportunity to share the latest developments in upskilling pathways, including their knowledge, innovative experiences and practices, challenges and inspirations, with a focus on the identification of key areas for action.
